What uses Memory most? Hi
Sadly, I'm USING 64 bit! But I'll look at the huge amount of imported objects in my current Muvizu, and see what I can reduce.

What uses Memory most? Is it characters, lights, cameras, imported assets or objects, bitmaps, or what ? What is the best thing to cut down on ?

FBX Attachments with textures - TOTAL FAILURE After spending about 2 months learning 3d modelling, and spending £150 of my pension, on Muvizu Play+, I thought I was on the way to achieving great results. BUT, after working for a week on a project, and saving the results as "Favourites" each day, and saving the set files, and adding just one 5 second animation, everything was working fine UNTIL I saved my set. I tried to reload it and got - "Resource could not be loaded from package".
I tried to start again, but all the attachments which had textures would only load with that stupid red and white pattern. Now I Get a new message - " object called NAME MISSING", or "there was an error loading the scene".
I Had just 4 characters with a total of 6 textured attachments.
Further saves and reloads result in the "resource could not be loaded" message.
I have read the forums, but unless I am missing something, there does not seem to be a way to carry on with Muvizu, in the way I wanted and paid for.
Anyone ?

Lightweight Laptop Recommendations ? Hi Mike
I've looked at these specs dozens of times, but they are of no use to me as they are too technical! On the Internet they give the specs of the laptops, but I've no idea whether they are better or worse than the required specs for Muvizu.
I need a list of a few actual models of Laptops, saying whether they will work with Muvizu. Ive spent hundreds of hours trying to work it our for myself to no avail! I realise you are probably not allowed to say just one or two, but a list would be great!
Thank you.

Lightweight Laptop Recommendations ? My current Laptop weighs over 8 pounds (Dell XP5), it is too heavy to take with me away from home.
What are the current lightweight Laptops that will run Muvizu Play+ ?

Dreeko's extra bits I used the autodesk converter, and did indeed tick the checkbox, but the attachment has no panel for textures when it gets into muvizu. so i can't add it manually. Do I have to add an additional name to the end of the picture file instead of just .png ?

Dreeko's extra bits I have made an object in Sculptris, I have coloured it in Sculptris Paint. I have saved a texmap. I have converted the .obj to fbx.
I import into Muvizu - No Colour! What have I not done, or done wrong, please.

How did you get the chin addon to move ?
2013/12/3 15:46:28
Dreeko's extra bits I've not tried .fbx yet. Is there an advantage over .ase ? How do you get the colour in? The only way I could do it was to make two objects, and import them once to eyes, and once to brows.
Yes I'd love access to just ONE Muvizu character obj. Just a none moving one would be great!
Lovely Scrooge! I've not seen it until today.

I've been trying something new! Hi Dreeko
Sculptris to Meshlab (obj)
(Fiddle with size and number of triangles) , Meshlab to Sketchup (dae)
(Try to position in centre. Resize ?) Sketchup to Muvizu (via Muvizu ase exporter).

I am making attachments for the characters, but I find it very hit and miss as to what size the attachments will be when imported to Muvizu.
Any tips ?

Also, I can't figure out how to get the colours into Muvizu.

Importing .ase files as attachments to a character I have been trying to reduce the size of the files in Sketchup to use them as attachments. I reduce the size, then export to .ase, but it seems to make no difference when I import as an attachment in Muvizu.

Importing .ase files as attachments to a character Hello ukberty
I've tried what you've said and reduced the size and reexported to .ase. SOME of the time it works! But a LOT of the time it doesn't! I can't figure out why. I can see that an .ase file is actually a text file. Could I alter the text somehow and resave it? Surely there must be a way that would resize it every time?
2013/11/27 15:58:48
Importing .ase files as attachments to a character When I import an .ase file to Muvizu as an object, I can resize it to very large or very small. When I import the SAME .ase as a character attachment (In Play+) it is huge and can only be reduced in size a little. How do I fix this so I can make it much smaller ?

Can not upload videos via Muvizu Thank you!
2013/11/26 23:37:56
Can not upload videos via Muvizu Can not upload new videos via Muvizu. Could this be to Youtube altering accounts to include Google+?

Make Muvizu objects available for download Hi Dreeko
Been using and learning Sculptris today. Managed to get some models into Muvizu, but the PNG mapped files for textures painted in Sculptris, are not mapped onto the model. Have you managed this ?

Themes I have not heard anything about any competition for ages! You used to post this info on the Gallery Page, where I default to. Are these competitions hidden somewhere? I thought that the Gallery was the "Heart" of Muvizu, where people showed us just what they have been doing. If this is no longer the case, then please let us know where to look in future. An Advert for the prize, was the animation that won a previous competition long ago! If it was a competition to do an advert for the prize, then why wasn't this stated at the time? Also, if the contests are going to be fair, then surely the "Ordinary Muvizu" and the "Plus Muvizu" should have different competitions?

Dog Character's Teeth I've succeeded ! And I've posted the Bitmap to the Textures Assets.
