Returned today to a set I haven't touched since 1.7 came out, and whadayaknow? The video screens with AVI textures are all messed up.
Some swearing ensued.

Found this quick fix:
  • Install Xvid: http://xvid-codec.en.softonic.com/
  • Navigate to Progran Files(x86)\Xvid
  • Run MiniConvert.exe
  • Add existing broken AVI as source file and choose a target directory, then Convert
  • Reimport new AVI, problem solved

Hope this helps someone.

thanks for sharing that information, Emergency Squirrel (Love that name!)...
But I'm curious to know: How on earth did you come up with that solution?

I knew Xvid installed with a lot of little utilities, so I just tried it...
MiniConverter will also convert MOV, MP4 and other formats into Muvizu-friendly AVIs, so no need for those awful nagware converters.

For someone who is not all that familiar with what you are talking about, but has already had difficulties with creating videos that won't work right, I am hoping that maybe one day it will make sense to me. That is the beauty of a forum. The knowledge is there.

I am now editing using Camtasia, and it is taking a very long time since this is my first real project using Muvizu. I am not sure how it will all turn out, but I am learning a lot. It is frustrating having to make the first video with Muvizu and then having to fine tune it somewhere else, so maybe one day I will figure out how to get Muvizu to work better.

Thanks for sharing your discovery, emergencysquirrel.

Hola, he probado la opción de Miniconvert y realmente funciona, sólo que hay un pequeño problema, invierte el sentido de los vídeos y reduce los colores a 256. En cuanto a la duración del vídeo, si queréis que dure algo más, solamente hay que dividir un vídeo en partes de dos o tres segundos y luego unirlas todas con Virtualdab sin aplicar ningún códec. Es decir guardando el avi en Direct Stream Copy. Aquí dejo una muestra y mi agradecimiento por la ayuda, claro.

Hi, I tried the option Miniconvert and it really works, only that there is a small problem, reverses the direction of videos and reduce the colors to 256. As for the duration of the video, if you want to last more, you just have to split a video into parts of two or three seconds and then link them all with Virtualdab without applying any codec. That is keeping the in Direct Stream Copy. Here I leave a sample and my thanks for the help, of course.

Hi people

I tried some video converters identified in this forum and after searching in the web I began to understand Muvizu problems managing video files. Unreal Engine last edition didn´t goes well with video textures and might be the problem. Anyway I tested three converters: 4 Videosoft video converter, Aimersoft video converter and Freemake Video Converter. The last one didn't get sucess. The others are able to convert any video file to Muvizu friendly AVI. There are many others converters that could have success in this task. They only need to have avi convertion capability using the msmpeg4 encoder. This enconder was made many years ago by microsoft. It was one of the firsts mpeg4 codecs abandoned later by microsoft and catch by Divx makers, who changed it. That explains why Xvid avi is not working. Both converters have msmpeg4 enconder inside them and are able to codify any video to AVI but you have to choose that enconder. Those old encoders released by microsft (I think in 1997) had 3 versions.

To prove that this enconders are working with Muvizu 1.7 see this little video with timelapse sky and ground moving waves.

Rod,

Thanks for sharing the results of your research with us, and for narrowing the solution down to a specific encoder. Maybe now people who don't have one of the named converters can get usable results from whatever they have by selecting the encoder you've identified.
