Yea I know! I have recently been trying to branch out my PC knowledge with some Blender modelling/animating. Youtube has some fairly easy to follow tutorials of folks going over the Mocap to Blender process using 3rd party Mocap/Kinect programs found on the net (some free, some not so much). You should definitely have a wee look and see what you can take from them.



Yeah i am going to have to find the time I think because I know eventually muvizu will likely allow fbx format imports which opens the door for animation files

Attack of the nandroids Well now that was truly interesting and hilarious and epic.

Good job. I love seeing long stuff and from the ending it looks like there is a part 3 coming (eventually).

Please Decrease size of Gallery Icons/ Pictures Nope gallery page for submissions only and limit 1 per channel to prevent overwhelming the feed with one users submissions.

Is it true, that both ZuboxTV and TheFootballSpecial are both operated by Muvizu People ?
If so, then as I write they currently have 6 out of the 8 videos showing in the Gallery. I think this is unfair, if true, to us mere mortals. Why not have a Separate Gallery for them ?
If they are completely independent, then I humbly apologize in advance.

ZuboxTV is Muvizu's sister company, and I believe TheFootballSpecial is run by Zubox.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.



Yeah this is a social media and community No No. I only just noticed the pull down menu on that page. I can guarantee that no one is ever going to use that unless they are a seasoned user with a lot of spare time on their hands. For the most part the only page that is going to get viewed is the default page for all uploads which for the most part (even with the gallery housed more videos on that page) is dominated by well a couple of users. I dont upload much if at all but since this site is supposed to be a community building tool I am starting to feel like i am being drowned in videos by a single user. I run away from social media and communities when this happens. No point really in being a part of it. Its like going to a party and only one guy has a costume on and the rest of us were forced to take ours off and look at only his lol.

Yup, I agree too. At least 12, ideally 16 vids shown, with the Staff Pick being at the bottom of the page, the newest vids at the top. Seems only fair to the Muvi makers.




I just saw this comment as well hehe re: staff pics

myself I think that staff pics should be somewhere on the front page and that set of videos link to the gallery and that leaves the gallery page for new uploads. I think the focus of the site is moving away from fostering community in some ways. Staff pics probably wont change very much although they should make an effort to refresh the list and update it once a month.

yes i remember this comment awhile back and this spurred this idea.

ZuboxTV is somehow linked with muvizu and I dont know about the other. Never the less i dont think anyone should be able to dominate the front page of any site by spamming uploads. It drives away the rest of the community.

Even if they doubled the size of the gallery uploads with the increase in userbase this problem will mean eventually people's uploads will only be there for a few minutes. So as well as increasing gallery page amount that it can show (it can only be so big really) maybe they also need to find a way to sort uploads by users so that each different person uploading only takes on spot at a time instead of potentially all the spots.

Hmm, so, 'latest uploader' instead of 'latest video' and when you click on 'latest uploader' it gives a drop down of all their latest videos...

Does anyone agree? dunno



i dont know why that needs to be so complicated there still will be tones of new videos to watch however watching the fact that one or two channels dominate the front page thereby drowning out anything else will likely discourage people from even bothering. If the idea is to foster community then everyone needs some equal exposure if 2 people upload 3 videos in a single evening then that is the front page dominated. The drop down menu wont work as people respond to visual qeues and will only click on those and will be ignored. It also looks bad to outsiders when they see like 2 accounts with several videos each in the gallery section.

I have seen various complains about one or two channels dominated all the spots when we had more on that page. If you have ever seen when someone spams a place with 20-30 videos premade you will see how it can be abused. This will become more common as the community grows.

Do you have a personnal website ? i dont really trade links anymore i found that usually they end up being something you have to police because people tend to drop you off their list eventually so that its not a reciprocal link

but these are my sites

http://www.pixel-junkies.org (just my ramblings, rantings and life around pixels as a hobby I also run a virtual world server off the back of it that is like secret that i am not supposed to tell anyone.. oops although its down cause i am upgrading things back there and wanted to clean up my space before the hosting company complains..)
http://www.pixel-heroes.ca (all about superman its just a domain forwarded over a free blog hehe)

Chromakey, characrer in livevideo There are free options for chromakey as its a very common technique and actually pretty low tech several people have posted links to software that can do it. You dont need to spend money on adobe after affects for things like chromakey

Chromakey, characrer in livevideo hi there

you would need to use the green screen set that is in the sets options or make one. Then do your recording of the character and then use video editing software with the ability to do chromakeying. So basically the same way you would do it with other software ..record your character against a green/blue or other coloured background he has not got in his clothes or attachements and then use the make video option to make the video and import that into your editor and do the chromakeying.

Dreeko Strips! I was doing posters at one point around my superman stuff. Its kind of fun to do the still shots and printed media around a video it feels to me "like a real movie" hehe

Suggestion : traduction of the website https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/

This uses their translator. You just click a button and it translates. Myself I have found these translators to be horrible if you understand the language partially the translations make no sense and so i no longer ever attempt to use them alone. Most translators work well if you have a basic working knowledge of the language and can correct obvious errors otherwise sometimes they do more harm then good Big Grin .
