That'll be how Andy Murray won it then

Andy Murray=a typical ordinary human until aliens from space transformed him into a Scotsman!
They had to wait years to finally transform the right one. Most went off to fight wars or became
stand up comics, or animators...haha.

Never argue with a Monty Python skit because they are just much too silly.

The following apology is from John H. Collins (aka: BigWally)

I wish to humbly apologize for anything I said untoward anyone who speaks in Scottish accents. My comment was a wayward attempt at humor and I have a high regard for the Scots. In fact, I am part Scottish. I have many Scottish friends. Once again, I humbly apologize.

Anime Sweat

Going off on another direction, but your disclaimer made me do it.
I just spent 10 minutes on a clever reply to this, but I guess it insulted my computer that I also have a high regard for, and magically my post disappeared. Oh well, it probably was for the best.
It is a shame that we can not have humor for the sake of humor anymore, and have to have disclaimers or apologize in advance for those we might offend because we are being funny.

Did you know that a Scotsman had never won at Wimbledon so aliens started turning people into them? This is how it started.

gee, you sure know how to say all the stuff I want to hear, Rocque! Thank you for your kindness!

Ya da Ma'am!

So when you need a cute girl voice I will volunteer mine. I am not sure how cute it will be. That depends on pitch adjustments and the character you design. Clayster has promised me I can be a cow again, and his cows are awfully cute!! It will take some effort to go beyond the Clayster cows, but that is the fun and challenge of voice acting. Now it will be even easier with your tutorial I won't have a window open for each line I record. This will be a huge time saver.

How to create dialog tracks with Audacity Pat,
Thank you so much for this tutorial. I learned a lot from it. I usually make individual files one at a time with Audacity and it takes me a long time to do it that way. That was excellent and is going to help me in the future. I could never get Muvizu to give my files different names either. Maybe they fixed that. Or maybe it was because I save as MP3 files. It was never easy at all. I think I would only make one dialog and then record that sequence with the one line, then make a new sequence.

When I do have time to start making more animations this is going to help a lot.

Japanese song Unfinished project from last year. Hello Speedking5,

Definitely keep working on this. I am enjoying the techniques.

WHERE ARE YOU? Yay, another So. Cal. person. It is nice to meet you. I have a friend with the same name and last initial who is a teacher. We go stand up paddling together. It sounds like you will do fine in your classes. I will be here to encourage you. If I had it all to do over again I would be going into some sort of film editing or definitely more animation.

I look forward to watching your progress. You will find everyone on this site is encouraging, so be sure to share with us.
Have fun in college.

Your sets are great. I like all the available views that you created.

AVI import cropped and doubled I remember having those results when I started and loaded my files into Windows Movie Maker. It was a total disaster. I also thought I could add bits and pieces of videos back into Muvizu and join them here some how. I was wrong again.

The people in the forum helped me to get my first video finished by introducing me to a free compositing (editing) program/software that was a step up from Movie Maker and Camtasia. I also attempted to edit in YouTube but that was not a good experience.

I think the majority of people on the forum agree to make your film in short segments and save is as an image sequence, then add it to your video editing software. Yes, it is a not a fast easy process as the introductory tutorials lead you to believe. I thought, woo hoo, give me 2 hours and I will have a masterpiece (well maybe not quite that naive, but close).

Once you get used to making the film in storyboard type segments, that you are going to piece together, then you will stop having the types of images that you shared. Once again I had the same exact results. It was very frustrating.

Edited part:
OOPS...I thought about deleting this, because you are importing your .avi back into Muvizu. Not exporting as an avi file. I remember having that type of look though as mentioned above.

I am sure that the accomplished users here can help you get over the difficulties you are having.

I find it interesting that so many of us are also musicians!

And Banjo players!

I think a Banjo player qualifies as a musician!!! It is nice to learn where everyone is from, and what we have in common. All the musicians should find a way to collaborate on a song. I bet it could be done, then we could have our very own Muvizu theme song for collaboration animations, even if it was for the end credits or opening. Something easy for me to say since I never really got very good at playing an instrument.

I am very sorry to hear about losing a life partner (Pat and Comictude), and watched what my dad went through when my mother died. It is a horrible experience to lose someone you love and share so much with. I have memories of showing my mother cartoons I made on Go!Animate, and she was definitely my best audience, and just thinking about it makes me smile. She was definitely my best friend, and even after 4 years I still want to call her up every day.

What types of stories did you write Comictude? I would like to be able to start and finish writing one book, but lately am writing math curriculum for Geometry, and hopefully it will benefit students who struggle with the subject.

It seems we have people who live in areas with the most rain on this forum, and then I live where I watch the rain clouds pass by. Finally this year we are having more rain then in a long long time, so it is making a difference.

Thanks to everyone who is sharing a bit about themselves here. It makes the forum a lot more fun.

Lip Sync Nightmare Comictude,
I hate to see anyone who is active on the forums leave, but I can understand the frustration. I hope that you will return to let us know what you found, and to show us what you are creating.
I watch a lot of videos created by Muvizu users and the lip syncing never seems to bother me at all. Maybe it is because I enjoy Anime where I almost always have the Closed Caption going so I can read what they are saying. The lip syncing on Anime is always off, but I still love to watch it.

A few people here talk about the importance of the story, and I feel that carries the animations I have seen. I am always amazed by the end results I have been able to see by the artists here. They do a great job, and most of them will answer any question and share their techniques.

You can not beat this community, and to me that is worth the price of admission. It is only a one time fee. I have learned more by being in this community in a short time than I would have had to pay a lot more for in a university course. Plus, it is always here to come back to.

My 1st 360 video This was really fun to watch and interact with. I only found a few of the town's people. They definitely like to hide. The second time I found a few more. Thanks for showing what the 360 technique looks like. I also enjoyed the other video that showed more ways to watch YouTube in 360.

Where do you find the Google Cardboard? That was a great demo from Matt's video.

New Character That is an amazing character. I need to start writing some stories to use all of these great props, characters, etc. I am not familiar with any games or movies associated with this character.
Maybe we should start our own Sci Fi think tank to come up with some Clayster originals to avoid the wrath of anyone who might object to us using their characters, or likeness of their characters.

I will have to come up with a story. Once upon a time....there it is started.

I use Hitfilm pro, I been using it since it was Fxhome, since they added all of these new effects I wanted to try something different, so I decided to combined star wars a doctor strange to start off!

I was wondering if it was HitFilm Pro. I use it, too, and think it is great. Thanks for showing more of what it can do.

A strange Star Wars Spoof! Clayster, that was so much fun!! Thank you for the spoof. I would have never thought to combine all those characters, but you did it very well. I am not sure how you created all of the effects but they were definitely fun to watch.
What external programs did you use to create this?

Character sets old and new Thanks for sharing that Clayster. I have an idea for a tribute, and might be able to start it today. I am glad you were able to collect all the action figures. Definitely hold on to them, because even if they make new sets they will never match the ones you have. I look forward to seeing your tribute.
2016/12/29 16:00:32
Character sets old and new Thanks once again Clayster. Now that Carrie Fisher has past away and her mother, maybe we will see some tribute videos. I know that Steve Martin removed his tweet saying that she was beautiful and smart for being sexist remarks. YIKES. I hope the world will let people speak what is on their mind without condemning them for being hateful when they are expressing genuine feelings. If Carrie Fisher looked like Chewbacca she would have played that role, and not Princess Leia. Instead she played the role of a beautiful princess.

I suppose I am ranting because there are so many times I do not say what I want or create what I want because I am afraid someone will not interpret it incorrectly and I will carry a label that is false, and have to defend myself for what I create. Humor and creativity is becoming more and more limited too fast for me. And even now I want to delete what I just wrote for fear it might upset someone. If it does I will come back to delete it.

That being said, I look forward to seeing how people use your gifts, Clayster. Thanks again.

And a Merry Christmas from me as well......

I haven't posted a link to this for a while.....
and it seems appropriate.

Thanks for sharing your video again ukBerty. This is among the best. Every time I watch it I see more. You have my permission to share this link every year because it is an incredible animation.
I hope you are enjoying the holiday season.

TUTORIAL SERIES: SILO to MUVIZU Is Silo just for character clothing, or can it be used for set design? I see all sorts of images on the home page. It looks interesting. I just went through some DAZ 3-D tutorials yesterday, and it was nice as long as I was spoon fed what to do. I have not attempted anything on my own yet. I will have to wait a couple of days to check out the tutorials here since I will be out of town. Thanks for the topic Pat.

MERRY CHRISTMAS! I was hoping someone would start the Christmas cheer going around. Merry Christmas everyone!!! I know it is almost Boxing Day for some. Tomorrow is when I will be hanging out with my brother and his family.

I like the idea of a Christmas Card video. That is very clever.

Here is a wish for a safe holiday season for everyone.

A special shout out to Jamie for all his dedication and patience to get all of us up and running on Muvizu. I know I spend one morning emailing back and forth until I finally got the studio up and running. I think I ended up staying home from work that morning to get it done.

Annual Christmas Greeting That was a spooky Halloween, I mean Christmas greeting. It reminds me of that story about the Monkey's Paw. Creepy.

I loved the Christmas sweaters your characters were wearing. Excellent job on knowing how the studio works. The video was fun to watch. I hope I never get that gift though.
