muvizu pro............. I am fairly certain that if they did release renderdigiwhatsit for a sane price under the muvizu brand name it would sell. I can't say at this point that I would purchase it as i have spent a fair amount on a newer product that does what I want it to do, but for those around who have not spent their money on something else it would be a good thing.

your an 'amateur' why would one want to use a 'pro' product /end sarcasm

LOL sorry can't resist. Alas I have taken my amateur wallet and given the money to someone else at this point. I waited and nothing happened so I got tired of waiting and well wanted to make some videos and do some things that were bouncing around in me head screaming to get out like a dancing banana and a guy with bad teeth making money off a giant hole he blew in the ground so.. i did :/

The Motherland Calls she's very good

For the retopology though seeing the entire thing your going to have to go to manual or you will make yourself crazy LOL. Once you get good at it its not too difficult and its fairly fast and some of us wierd people even enjoy manual retopology. Its kind of like knitting I guess.

An open Letter to Muvizu's developers ukBerty wrote:
. This must mean something.

The system to get things into source are mind boggling the file system is very bad basically its just a game (that game) they glued a filming sort of looking thing on like you would get in any film editor package and a way of recording things (which was already part of the unreal engine).

so yeah *cough* there is something geared towards movie makers that is easy to work with ... and then unreal 4 has released its own film package for making movies/videos so there is no need for source any longer.

I wish that was true.

Oh well i have thrown out two pcs like less then a month ago both were using muvizu one had a 560 and the other a 660 and those are the cards I ran muvizu with. Even the play+. I only recently replaced my pc and didnt install muvizu on it. I moved my muvizu to the pc with the 660 and found it worked fine. The purple seuss thing was done on the pc with the 660. Everything else was using a 560. So I dont know why it suddenly wouldn't work unless there is something wrong with muvizu in which case throwing money at a card wont solve the problem.

Rendering thread exeption: Fatal error! Out of mem lol you guys

what i was trying to say is basically he probably can get a graphics card for free that will run muvizu if he is trying to get past that error. Although the cpu is also pretty weak it could be the entire system. I personally would not sink money into that system although I guess if the card didnt help you can move it over, but the idea is to not throw money at it if its the cpu as well.

I have literally thrown out pc's that were capable of running muvizu... so that being said I think he can get a servicable nvidia 560 or 660 for 0.00 and see if it runs it

unless of course one is just wanting to build an entire new pc in which case more power is a good rule to live by Big Grin

Rendering thread exeption: Fatal error! Out of mem I presently am using a 980ti and have a hexcore i7 with 12 logical cpu's and 32 gigs of ram and its water cooled and has 3 internal 2 terrabyte hard drive so of course anything above the recommended specs will run it better. However that is a bleeding edge computer and muvizu does not require a bleeding edge to run it.

It ran extremely well on my old system which was using a first generation i7, 12 gigs of ram and a 660ti .

I would not tell someone to use this software on a beast system as a starting point though.

Rendering thread exeption: Fatal error! Out of mem you dont need an nvidia 750ti i have never run muvizu on a card like that I used a 560 and a 660ti with no issues.

I would suggest looking at the "recommended" specs because those cards although nice are exceeding the recommended specs. The muvizu recommended specs are 460 and above. I would say the cpu is the issue here more then anything.

I would avoid the minimum specs that means it will barely run, but no you dont need those cards to run it it ran quite well for me with a 560 I just wanted to build bone crushing sets and use 20 characters at once so i then upgraded to a 660ti.

A question about Muvizu chat vs using the forum in theory the forum is more for questions and info the chat is just for well chatting really.

If you have any info that is important that is asked often yeah put it in the wiki. I am not a wiki fan but have been known to use one now and then.

To Urbanlamb Regarding Radio Shows? oh no the music is a paid for service the only way you get access to it is to join their network etc. Its a service they provide as a result of splitting revenue with the creator. Considering how much of their music and sound effects I use its the least one can do lol. They also offer the cover song clearing service and a bunch of promotional and video creation type tools but its all in an area for creators who are part of the network.

Some people hate this idea but considering how much money I save I think its a great service and its all above board. I think I made like 40 bucks last year and I spent it on a video game but really I am more interested in the services they offer than getting rich

There are a few who will be relentless on youtube who you dont want to touch like bob marley they are pop culture popular songs and although they are dead their families are still collecting money on their works. They can be the worste anyhow at the moment ATV is using epidemic sound they had another company awhile back but they had to manually whitelist the videos with the music and it was too time consuming for them so they changed to a service that is used a lot because its automated. However its still a good price even if your doing it privately. Anyhow right now they are using epidemic http://www.epidemicsound.com/ . Yeah its not free. (unless you join something like ATV)

they also use epoxy and the other site wearethehits.com and one other I forget now.

To Urbanlamb Regarding Radio Shows? yeah the copyright info this is not quite true so be careful it depends entirely on the holder. I am a "hardcore" youtuber so I know all about their rules. The public domain music I avoid due to scams and stuff and its just not worth the paper work to get rid of it. Legally the people laying claim dont have a right to claim it but there are some scammers out there who do wierd crap and its very easy to target public domain performances.

I am a member of awesomenessTVnetwork ( http://awesomenesstv.com/corporate/ ). I joined them gosh years ago now to get royalty free music and sound effects to help the angst go away from youtube. Dont use copyrighted music unless you have permission ads or no if the copyright holder does not want you using his stuff he will have it taken down and you could loose your youtube account so just ... dont do it... its not worth it google is so huge

if you want to use copyrighted stuff ask the person who owns the stuff and if you want to "cover" someones hit song there is a clearing house for getting permisson to white list the performance but the performance must be yours and you must have cleared it with the holder.

These guys deal with helpting you to obtain permission to perform your own version of copyrighted music https://www.wearethehits.com/

So no dont post stuff without obtaining proper permission if you loose your channel your going to have a very hard time starting a new one you will need to find someone to make one for you google has lots of data to block anyone they want

if you want to use a beatles song clear it, but you need to make the music yourself you cannot use theirs unless you want to take a risk on them letting you keep it up just with ads.

in conclusion any music on my videos there if its written by someone else I have obtained the rights to use it. I dont post without permission ever 3 people hating your animations can come along in a row and that is the end of the channel. Seen plenty of people loose channels and full google access to know its possible and just not worth it.

I have either asked to cover it and have it whitelisted or used proper royalty free stuff. This costs money that is why I joined a conglomerate.

To Urbanlamb Regarding Radio Shows? oh look for public domain radio shows they are all dialogue really. If its in the public domain you can use it however you like.

I get most of my stuff from here https://www.otrcat.com/ its more reliable then archive.org but you can try there as well. Stay away from music even if its in the public domain someone is gonna try and claim or block it but dialogue no one cares about.

(Ooop fazz beat me but basically they are fair game if marked public domain. If you dont want to spend money find it in the otrcat catalogue and download it from archive.org lol )

I just dont trust the labelling there so I always double check.

Also something else you can do is audiobooks. If you are a female just download a book read by a male and then you have two voices without worrying about voice actors. https://librivox.org/

these are just audio books people read from paper books but there is another idea. I have also just taken a book and read it myself and made a story that way.

This is my public domain project the sets kinda start out simple as I do the first one and get more custom as I go along lol so you can see I was still learning to use muvizu at the beginning and eventually I get all the kinks out and build everything and stop using any muvizu assets other then the characters

Everyone who posts on this forum has helped me to face my fears and go beyond the one line one scene project and turn out something I can not be afraid of adding to my YouTube channel.

longer projects are quite hard they are daunting to look at. They can be fun though but they are a lot of work and take some organizational skills and patience. The key is take your time and walk away from it and dont rush and put things in file folders to assemble at the end.

Radio shows are fun to do especially if you are not one to be looking for voice actors. You can also chop them up and rearrange them and make something else out of them if you are feeling especially creative that week/year.

Anyhow I will go back to being a cheerleader. Once a year or so I say something that might not be all roses. I hope that no matter what I say its polite when I say it. Big Grin

New South Asian character pack available! I dont think people were trashing muvizu....It was just people being honest. I have no issue with people expressing opinions after all I have plenty of them myself, but when the conclusion is "go away" its no longer just that its something else lol. We dont have enough forum population for anyone to go away hehe.

Maybe if we were drowning in people no one would notice but lets face it if 5 people stopped posting for a week the forum would have no traffic LOL.

I also think of all the people posting in the thread I am likely the only one who doesn't have muvizu even installed right now so that is why I took it that way. I know that others have it installed and are actively working on something. Me I am creatively in a bit of a slump and drained and my interests are more towards making fullly rigged characters right now then anything else so this would be part of the reason why I reacted the way I did.

I also read it as "dont post negative feedback" which of course the creators of muvizu are professionals and as long as its constructive and not being negative everytime one posts (this is just complaining relentlessly which again the people posting this feedback dont do either).

Anyhow I will shut up my .. the point I was trying to make was about the go away part and dont be negative. I think everyone posting in this thread contributes something to the forum so any one of them going away is not a good thing.

All software is obsolete
I never thought of it like this.

I'm looking forward to Muvizu 2, designed in Unreal 4 with actual animation compatibility rather than what we have here.
(Old image for representation)

pc's are like that too if you purchased it its obsolete. So in the world of this sort of things upgrades are sort of part and parcel and it would be cool if this happened.

I know I stated the obvious but still sometimes this is not a bad thing to do. Blank stare

New South Asian character pack available! I am trying to be polite but the reality is this forum is often used as a drive by for self promotion. I always tried very hard not to do that and engaged in a lot of discussions (hence my post count). This forum is in need of people who just post to exchange information, talk about movie making in general and give feedback both positive and negative.

This post was painfully blunt, but the reality is that when comments are made about spotlights in a thread where there is no self promotion and only exchange of input and ideas (not always positive). It makes it difficult to be a part of a community.

So I have added my two cents on this topic but really my post count is high because I answer a lot of questions and have basic conversations. If people are told to go away the moment they stray off the path of "hey that is a cool video" and "look at my video" ... then what's the point? LOL


(it appears i have engaged in yet more discussion bad me)

Wow. Bit of a downer if you ask me. I have always been a cheerleader for Muvizu, but, hearing my mentors' criticisms are a letdown. I say if you are bored or have moved beyond what Muvizu can do, use something else. Positive feedback is always welcome, but comments here are bordering on the negative.

Let others have the spotlight.

I wasn't going to say anything but in looking at when the response was reposted I believe this was directed at me. I have not posted a single video to this site and have finally decided to engage in a conversation for the first time here in over a year. The only time I post on this forum is like once a week when I breeze by and answer a question that has been posted and appears not to be answered 100 different ways on this forum already.

So I just wont bother to even browse these forums or try to have a conversation or fill in the blanks to a questions when someone else hasn't been able to provide the answer to yet.. because it appears I am trying to take a spotlight I never had. (my videos are not that good to take one in the first place)
