behind the poster is a character manipulating several props with his hands. These include a gun, phone and cup amongst others.
Thumbs Up


NO!!! It can't be true. Is it really going to be that good a Christmas or am I just imagining things? I am good at reading between the lines and perhaps the cat has just been released from its incarceration. On the other hand it may still be in the box and we have no idea whether it is dead or alive.
You are 100% correct... When you say "it can't be true". Stick Out Tongue Apologies if you misread my earlier post - I just appreciated your joke is all - I didn't mean it to be connected to what I'd said earlier. My bad!
Needless to say, the day we are confident we have a solid mechanic in place to allow characters to hold objects, it won't be announced via a winking smiley on the forum - it will be announced via a size 8000 font message on the front page with accompanying pictures of Muvizu characters on the phone to their mothers, fathers and everyone they have ever met to let them know that they can now actually use phones.

So, with regards to characters holding objects in the next release - the cat is dead, my friend.
Soz, Woz!

Gasp! I'll be checking the home page every day now!Duhh

Huh? Ooh i use daily motion and blip as well and vimeo is very popular although I never liked their format much if I was adding to my website (which is where most videos end up over time in some manner).

Updates, Tutorials, Transparency! Oh my! haha poor mike this thread became interesting overnight. In any event lets hope that they dont find mike at the bottom of some river in a sack. Held objects for me with the way muvizu works is something I know at present is not going to be happening. We can hope they are making a few more objects like the musical instruments though one day....

I can handle making little groups of spotlights and balls and cutting and pasting them I was just hoping for a better solution my sets can get cluttered ^^

Updates, Tutorials, Transparency! Oh my! I saw a twitter wiz by that said a train/railway yard is also being built I wonder how soon this release is because well I am half way through building .. a railway yard outside scene and train station inside only scene.

... the indoor scene is done so I will use it I guess.... but you know I am at the end of it all basically a lazy person and if muvizu is releasing it soon I wont work on that movie bit any longer ^^

Updates, Tutorials, Transparency! Oh my! oh I like the jail cell stuff and yeah the lights.. I was working on a short christmas video that needs lots of lights and I spent last night copying little balls and spotlights to create a light effect haha. I am hoping as Woztoons is that lighting includes a glowing object that emits light and can act as an actual set lighting as well. Then I don't have to use 50 spotlights haha either way though I am glad to see the villains are getting put behind bars! I am also looking at the policeman/guard hat thinking possibly they have fleshed out the animations a bit more for the newer character models.

Should have really pointed out that the above screenshots are from my AVI transparency tutorial, which as I type is going through its final stages ready to be thrown to the lions *cough* Muvizu forum users/Youtube

haha to be honest I think its someone has discovered that "cool muvizu uses youtube and I like to troll and its just so easy because they have all these here youtube videos up so i can grind dislikes at superhuman speeds". Just my take on it you can create the ultimate masterpiece it makes no difference hehe.

*thinks up bribes for content sneak peaks*

Updates, Tutorials, Transparency! Oh my! haha oh that would be my bribe offer. I am always curious thanks for the photos

The thing is I am not animator I am an educator so these options you are giving me I'm sure sound wonderful but I have no idea what you are talking about. i just want to make something cool for my students.

they aren't really the best options and solutions its more of a "work around" haha in any event i think many would like 4 legged beasts
2012/11/6 1:51:23
horse needed! haha me too if I really want to have a horsey in me movies for now I will use some other means

although for close ups your horsey is perty convincing Thumbs Up
2012/11/6 0:47:11
horse needed! lol yes I was toying with the idea of making all the legs and head seperate from the body and animating the running/walking movement, but thought better of it. However if anyone really really wants an animal its possible to do this its just a lot of legs and well dont try it with a spider
2012/11/5 20:05:03
horse needed! I would like 4 legged animals but I dont know if that is a realistic request given some of the bugs that are present with um the 2 legged kind haha. I have toyed with the idea of making an object animal and using the object movement system to propell them (body 4 legs and head seperate) but I think it would make most anyone go bonkers trying to get 5 objects to move in unison lol but if anyone has A LOT of time on their hands maybe they will succeed

Sketchup to Muvizu yes many of the models are just large you need to be up in the air near the center of the building area where the dome is largest.

As for learning this stuff it all takes time if you learn little by little eventually it will work out. However you need to shall we say start at the beginning and watch videos and read tutorials and start with just a plain cube or something because if you dont understand the principles of what your doing you wont ever learn. I dont know if blender is truly easier or harder then sketchup many claim that blender is far too difficult. I would suspect its not its just a matter of what you learn to use first. One day I want to take a peak at sketchup for building things like buildings. I am sure there is a way to make models that are just as nice vertex wise as blender. In the end though whatever you choose to do it has to be learned from the bottom up err figurately of course and I find now that I am getting older the idea to learning is to learn in stages and not try to pump it in all at once. It simply does not stick because I need to understand every single little principle of whatever I am doing before I can move on. When i was 20 I could just pile it all in and use it and learn the principles later on .. does't work like that anymore. IN any event as you get time learn it little by little one day you will turn around and realize that you can do what you wanted.

Help With Sony Vegas Everyones system is a bit different the iYUV codec actually has not great quality for me but I have a webcam that makes uncompressed video that I use instead as it insalled a new codec on my system that plays nicer with my graphics card. I dont know of any settings there is a bit of trial and error involved I haven't tried the iYUV codec lately and I only recently replaced my graphics card so its possible the quality is higher. It could be a graphic driver issue giving lower quality something needing tweeking maybe someone else will know haha . Maybe direct X settings?

Before I replaced my webcam I only had the iYUV to work with and it was the best option. The codec that works really well for me is made by logitech and comes with their HD webcams so maybe you can find something online you can install. I think codecs is sort of hit and miss for rendering off things like muvizu.

Using Muvizu with kids go together like peanut butter and jelly. My grandson loves seeing himself being made into a cartoon. Keep up the good work. Hope to see more!

hehe yes kids love this kind of stuff I have seen a few parents do small short movies with their children and the friends of their children voicing all the parts looking forward to more
