Graphics card what kind of graphics card to you have? by the sounds of it its possible your card does not meet minimum system requirements but really you would have to post the name/model of the card for any further help

Boats in Muvizu hi just a bit confused you said moviestorm at the end of this all perhaps your mixing things up but I will answer anyhow

You can make the ship look likes it floating on water fairly easily and have the ship move etc what you cant do is have the people move with the ship without resorting to some sort of compositing that I can think of at the characters cannot be linked to the ship in any way and have it move as a unit so a project like this would require some interesting camera trickery

to have the ship sink and look like its hitting an iceburg etc and breaking up i am assuming you need to build several models at differnt stages (well at least this is how I would do it unless I wanted to resort to after affects for part of it in fact you might do both again it depends on the tools at your disposal) for myself i would build several models and then shoot the scene in various stages of destruction replacing the model carefully and re record without moving any cameras or changing perspective.

for modelling I dont use sketchup but you can get the software to make models jamie made an exporter and its usually easiest to bulid low to no collision models and use ground planes and set them to transparent. To get them to look like they are moving with the ship you can create movie an empty background where the ship would be by panning the camera and then either greenscreen the ship and people on in different layers or import the movie into muvizu (not moviestorm) and play it behind the ship.

here is the link to the page which has the sketchup importer I have no clue how sketchup works I am a blender head

you can also create water by having a water movie *.avi and have it play as a ground texture that is probably the simplest way.

Anyhow you can make the ship physically move but you can't have any avatars physically move with the ship.

Suddenly People who watch my videos has fallen ? Youtube has reconfigured a whole bunch. I use stumbleupon at times to find new followers etc. You might want to make like a little blog of some sort (tumbler seems pretty popular these days). Basically you have to find a way to 'pimp your videos' haha . I suck at twitter but I have developped a presence on facebook (facebook makes more sense to me twitter I truly dont get .. ) I dont know how many views I get from here really I haven't checked to be honest and youtube has changed up their algorithms over time to match googles stuff.

You also need to find good search terms especially with the new layout little people like us get burried

Coming Soon... I tried a penguin so far it didnt work so well kind of just slid around looking unpenguinlike..

but if I was to make birds model ones it would be birds that you know sat on a perch and moved their heads or something like that. Otherwise I would use some compositing in a video editor and cheat ^^ .

But those outdoor scenes definately call for the birds flying overhead you know there is water there so a seagull and some strategic bird plops on someone's head to you know add some realism lol.

Feedback Thread - v0.23b release (Nov. 2012) I found another bug

not huge but I was making some items and for the life of me could not figure out when I imported them why I could not animate any properties.. well it seems that you have to save the set with the object in it that you import and then reopen the set and then you can animate the properties. (colour/texture change)

not a huge bug but while we are pointing out oopsies this is an oopsy I noticed tonight .. after about an hour of thinking I was doing something wrong with my models somehow

Scene area doesn't fill muvizizu window (maxed) lol well dont forget now . I think my system fonts are all default so I have not run into this my monitor is rather huge so everything is you know .. large as a result i have my monitor pushed back on my desk so i dont go blind from the sheer size etc. Anyhow have fun with your next masterpiece

Sappy Christmas Videos and the like hehe yes i built that set for 20 seconds of quick panning but I guess its used in other sets in the muvi so it was worth it :0

I have this agreement that I must create "santa pain" with a friend of mine somewhere in any video where santa might appear haha its become a bit of a joke and almost tradition now you will find other videos i have created with "santa abuse" in them

anyhow glad you enjoyed it..

Scene area doesn't fill muvizizu window (maxed) weird did your operating system change or you know get an evil microsoft fixit patch or something? and does muvizu use your browser system? did that get 'patched' lol if so "unpatch it"? dunno sounds wierd everyone is having a lot of wierdo bugs in this build (me included) so far have not seen this one.. (yet)

Sappy Christmas Videos and the like Hello I created a small shall we say remix/mashup/medly (dunno what to call this) it was a project I wanted to do last year alas I had no time so I kept the file of music for this year with a vow that I would not leave it till the last minute.. Anyhow so its part of a series (overkill series) of this particular song with a long version, short version and very fast A.D.D version lol anyhow here is the first of the series

apologies i had several technical issues so its not as smooth as i would like it to be but ""what can you do when you live in a shoe?" (i am also full of brandy as I type this so its likely more inchorent then usual cause I drink like twice a year or something) /hic

Where are textures stored? Ah okay glad you got it moved over haha. I will probably upload that anyhow (well a few textures I used). Stuff like that is actually easy to find anyhow on the net but I guess for consistency you need to use the same one if your making a movie with more then one scene
2012/12/2 23:45:53
Where are textures stored? if that happens its because the texture was not native to muvizu so you will have to make the object favourite and then create the object in the new set. If its a ground texture you need to use the set to build. Is it the snow textures? I can upload a copy to the muvizu site in the texture section if this is your issue and they will add it in the morning when they log on. This is a downfall of using prebuilt sets unfortunately

my slow spirit your english is not bad the translator tends to scramble it a bit from google. I have very poor french I forgot most of it but when I feed my english to translate to french into google it makes a mess and I have to fix it. The translator is not very good it uses the wrong words but as you improve you will find better words on your own.

Anyhow yes they had a treasure hunt instead. The treasure hunt is probably better to include everyone. I find competition on making videos for prizes is not great especialy if the prizes are software to improve the video. The reason being the best video wins quality wise etc but if they have better quality they likely dont need the software. So its better they do this way because a good video editor program makes is possible to make nicer video productions. Its difficult to rely only on the tools inside muvizu to make video.

I drag my feet when entering contests and I often only enter if a request is put out for entries due to low participation because I dont really want to win the prizes. I am happier its this way although the laptop is something I would enjoy this time, but at least they are not awarding prizes according to skill level or high quality video because it excludes new people or people with a low end pc.

edited to add punctiation..
*passes out*

how create an transparent window and a sinkhole? yeah importing can be a bit difficult well object creation in general as you build a set. in order to get stuff into the set easily you might have to find "the sweet spot" its near the center of the muvizu dome and up in the air. Just keep moving around until you fing a spot that lets you import easily and remember the area. I find that in some cases I have to import all the large objects before I start building and keep an area clear to make it easy to import it.

(The windows are large its a skinny object and they dance around if they are not bulky enough when you scale it down you will notice it starts to bounce. This is a muvizu thing which probably will never go away)
