Not at all! Lol!

I was only joking with the "bath me in glory" post.

Just trying to keep things light

Really though, What are the issues you are having specifically?
edited by Dreeko on 24/04/2013

I spent gosh another 3 hours the other night trying to animate rosie in an old set I had no scroll bar and I was just finding I was getting lost in the interface. I can't really describe it. I was trying to use the other characters in the scene from an old video and add her in. I gave up. I found myself flipping and clicking buttons constantly because keeping them all in the timeline made it difficult because it just well massive yet removing them is time consuming and then I found i wanted to add and arrange an action I had just created and well there was no way to scroll i was hoping from queue to queue point Yes i know supposedly there is a scroll bar, but it was not there i am thinking i was in the "other timeline" for her character when I was recording the actions. So I had a choice of two timelines to work with I guess. Whatever has been done to it i am constantly shutting it down and doing something else or using 23b and saying "Its not done yet".

Quite honestly 23b has a better design I can manage it. Its possible because I am used to a more steamlined management system when things get that complicated that I find it unmanageable, but the reality is for me I am starting to say "iclone is easier for this". I tend to pick the best tool for the job I dont descriminate between platforms I have quite literally everything ever made that I know of hehe. Muvizu's strenghts were in the easy fun quick timeline with this new added layer i am finding myself turning to something else to do the work in. Maybe in a month I will try again but at the moment I find myself forcing myself to use a software and its become "unfun" and I am not getting the same results i was and its taking me longer to get any result. I found myself the other day putting it away and working on something else hoping this gets fixed, but I think it is fixed haha (well except for one or two crazy sets that are slow to load) and I still am wrestling with the software. I can't really explain it its an issue of how things are spacewise and the amount of space they take up. I can probably muddle through however I dont think I will be obtaining the same results I had in the past I seemed to have less control and not more and I spent most of my time shuffling things so I could see what I was doing and its become something of a chore and a chore I dont want to do (this is after all for me a creative outlet more then anything and if it aint fun i dont wanna do it ^^)

(anyhow that is my answer but I keep saying it. I dont know how else to explain it.. its I guess 'organized chaos' when i work with it.. I wont post about it anymore if everyone else is happy I just I can't work with it lol /shrug) I suspect the scrollbar is a bug .. its just in all that chaos I can't really tell anymore..

I will add this phrase unfortunately its not going to help much more 'unusuable crowded clunky ui' if others can use it great however I cannot without getting lost in it. Its better but unfortunately its huge and clunky and crowded and there is no other way to describe it :/ . From what I am gathering no one is having a problem with it so I can't really say anymore other then its unusable crowded and clunky and really I can't use it. I am sorry if people feel that is not contructive but I have shown screenshots of things that are a bit more streamlined and given long long descriptions.

How do I get an image on a sphere? they do have a sphere you can use. I just never was able to create say the earth or moon without a seam in it even if i had it unwrapped. Usually its a rectangle something like 1:2 ratio or even 1:4 ratio to go on a sphere. I just found it a heck of a lot easier to make my own sphere in that case though

How do I get an image on a sphere? To be honest I use a blender sphere and map it. YOu can probably do something similar in sketchup to ensure all the picture is in the right place.

Urbanlamb, would you be willing to send me the set file so I can take a look at the crash and maybe even why it's taking so long to load? If so, please send it to bugs@muvizu.com and mark it for my attention. Thanks.

okay it wont fit in an email I will upload it somewhere as the site refuses my sets now and send a mail. Its something I wanted to rebuild and its kind of in a mess but I am using it or was. Most other sets are loading now within 10 minutes. Even if i am wrestling with the timeline now for the most part it was usable. Although I have to admit so far I am finding this new muvizu play to be more of a test of my will to put up with it then an experience where I am going to be able to use it with any skill. Again its the timeline its simply huge and so far i just can't really work with it with multiple items in it. However its usable but I can't use it to the proficiency I was too gangly still. I used it last night briefly and the only way i could make it viable is to use it one character or item at a time.

Muvizu:Play 1.0 timeline discussion hi me again
I installed the latest muvizu and saw some of the timeline changes, but my metropolis set (actually not as large as some other sets I have used) but it contains about 15 characters and a lot of lights is refusing to load.. well its loading very slowly its been half an hour and its at 79%.

I did manage to use rosie in my railroad junction set that loaded but its mostly just mesh. I was hoping I could post yay its fixed enough for me to build sets, but I dont think it is

Anyhow getting there slowly i see

err actually I changed my mind I think its usable now hehe. It finally did load and when i pressed the button to hide the rest of the stuff in the timeline that was animated it seemed to not have any lag at all so I guess even though it took 37 minutes to load that set after it loaded it was okay to use so yay for that.


*cough* third edit ..
and then when I went to shut the program down it crashed :/
no messages just stalled and gave up running. Anyhow *cough* I think I am done posting about this now ^^

Muvizu:Play 1.0 timeline discussion I see muvizu refuses to learn a second language haha well although the bug was annoying I did get a chuckle from this one.

Change the color of the eyes hi there
you can change the pupil colour on all the characters and on some of the newer ones especially you can change all the eye colour. The older guys there are some characters where you can change the colour of the white part as well you just need to find that option in the eye menu.

So much potential, so many bugs At the moment i use uncompressed muvizu only goes to 720x1280 anyhow. If I want to do something wierd with the frames I might do a short bit of TGA but for me anyhow the loss of quality after youtube re-encodes in webm no one is going to see it and I sure can't I only see my editing errors after I look at it being away from a week of staring at the video. I find an advantage to using tga's if I have to do a stop motion edit in muvizu to mimic an action that can't be animated inside it (picking up a phone, handing over a sheet of paper or something and even then most people are busy blinking so they miss it hehe). I also find tga good if your doing *cough* discontinuous editing or jump cuts to mimic passage of time (I have yet to put that in muvizu not seen much use for it... yet) but otherwise uncompressed is good enough for me. If I wanted to do ultra hd maybe I would consider switching, but at the moment for muvizu anyhow I see little advantage to it unless its for some specific editing magic because youtube is gonna butcher the video no matter what and encode it really badly.

Probably your using hd so the file is large (over 2 gig) and this basic AVI configuration windows cannot read. If you want 15 minute video you will need to download a codec package microsoft avi max is 2 gig in size.


everyone recommends klite codec package

First Video looking good for a first try. I kinda suck at giving feedback for this kind of stuff because I hate being told how to do things I enjoy figuring it out on my own (i am one of them dreaded thinkers..) , but since you asked ^^ the big thing that I noticed was lighting due to lack of any lighting and shadows it was hard to see what was going on. There are some prebuilt lighting sets you can check out to give you an idea of how to light a set for nightime stuff etc. Otherwise was looking good and imaginative with that dialogue so great start

Thumbs Up

I can I created a smooking with Muvizu hehe I am not sure what smooking is unless its slang i found this

anyhow do you speak of the tie or the jacket?

if you want the jacket is in the gallery ziggy made it

the tie is not available that zuboxtv is custom rig for digimania and I think they even use cpu render from the looks of it. Anyhow here is the link to the jacket. Also the custom textures just release have a cute jacket but not that tie.

Time to say goodbye. Aww that is sad. Good luck in your new job and may the gamers not give you too much heartburn.
2013/4/18 21:12:03
Muvizu:Play (V1.0) Feedback thanks I would assume its the way the timeline is handling info .. just a wild guess really as to the cause of the lag even in unlit mode.
