I want my Character to begin scene laying on a bed i have had my character lie on a bed you just can't have an animation of them getting into bed all fancy like but what I did was make it so the bed can be stood on (click on the box can be stood on in the edit menu) and then place the character standing up on the bed and use one of the lying down poses. If he is not in the right spot keep moving him in the stand up position until he lies in the bed in the right spot. This means though that none of the other animations work.

The other option is to make the bed so that the character does not stand on it (uncheck the box above) and there is a "bed topper" in the 3d gallery or make your own bed topper to make it appear as if your character is in bed under the covers and then he can use all the standing animations or sitting animations if you choose the sit pose

I can't see any problems with the Medieval tent, the texture works fine for me, do you have a screen shot of the problem? Did you import it with id texture enabled?

D'oh! Forgot to turn on id textures, tent's fine, thanks Jamie. But the other models mentioned are still not selectable, id or not. Oddly though, you can still see them on the Scene Window - you can select them, edit them, you just can't move them or interact with them in any other way.

I actually had this issue with a few objects i made the exporter messed them up and I had to re-export the item I had me so its some mesh issue perhaps the objects were not well made in the first place but yes there were some buildings i tried when I first started I imported them and could see them and they were all properly coloured they simply were not selectable

Urbanlamb could you let me know the name of some of the objects that are not working for you?

haha your "guess" is about right.

So urbanlamb, can we expect some top cape action in the next installment?

Oh yes most definately I will do my bestest to convert his scarf into a cape haha. I forsee a good 10 gig of Raw footage to get my 20 seconds of top notch cape action lol. I spend so much time stitching together scenes and clips but visually it is definately worth it

thanks for this all i could think was "dang they need to introduce wind or animate this cape" the soft body stuff is a bit meh in muvizu obviously its a work in progress hehe. For now this works well enough and I dont care how i get there as long as its convincing in the end Big Grin

Superhero Adventures Episode 2 lol I spend a lot of time tricking people in these types of videos and as you can see I try to pay attention to detail for me I am not satisfied otherwise. I put a lot of little extras in that little movie that no one will notice unless they watch it 20 times haha but they make me chuckle as I add my twist to this radio series. The shows move so fast you have to come up with ways of breaking them up and having it make sense visually but that is part of the fun for me. We can all chuckle at this show because really superman has evolved and come a long way from "so you want to meet men is that it?" and popping out on earth full grown in his already fully crafted tights and cape haha.

Thanks for the solution I must say I would not have come up with your idea in a million years

How to make a char fly and move at a same time I do both of these methods and dont have a huge issue making my superhero fly but I agree with dreeko I would of course like to have my characters drive a car or fly an airplane among other things. I figure it never hurts to ask lol

Guns and Performance people dont like getting flamed so forums are for those with flame retardent suits even this one hehe. In any event yes hand held props of some sort (of course i lean towards a system the likes of which I see in iclone) but anything that can be done would help. My most recent "annoyance" was around a telephone conversation which I could not leave out of the story I did not like my work arounds I had a pick up and hang up telephone animation with no loop to hold the phone and of course had to create the phone receiver and fart around and in the end my solution was sort of lack lustre lol but one does the best they can with the tools they have. Hopefully a few new tools are possible.

Non Selectable Muvizu Objects yes when i was starting to play with muvizu all but one asset I downloaded was broken. The school bus worked. I would hazard a guess that anything made before 2010 is likely not working and can be deleted hehe.

I will start just making a few assets soon as I need a movie making break this last one is hard. I made a tree actually not a great one it was experimental so the leaves texture has some areas on it that are not quite right but I wanted to see if transparency would work as I saw a post on here you could not have it on an object or something. Anyhow the tree turned out well

I also found a bug but I dont know if its in the exporter or muvizu its flipping some of my uv maps always in the same location lol and its annoying anyhow I am aware of this bug now and am attempting to um compensate for it but in some cases I just ignore it lol

(edited typed to fast again and my first sentance didnt make sense!)

Guns and Performance *cough* well if they added hand props and a decent way to animate with them and maybe did a bit of work on the cameras I would be contacting them about commercial works most likely *hides again*

How do i personalize superhero costumes? Yes what ziggy said. I have to slow down when I type I am always going a million miles an hour. There is also "torso" maps for the upper body.

How do i personalize superhero costumes? The new characters have more complex uv maps. They each have a zip file and there are uv maps for several different clothing types but you can customize that you need to find the appropriate uv map to match. IN this case its a downloadable zip file and there is one for legs spandex. That is what you need for the superhero costume. There is a seperate map for gloves as well

These maps are better and have more detail then the original characters

Shadow Problem hehe my usualy problem is i leave shadows on all my lights (i use lots ..) and have like 20 shadows and have to go around clicking them all off. Anyhow glad you solved it

Guns and Performance I would love to have the ability to hold more props but usually that comes with a need for more animation or some type of limited puppeteering to make it actually useful hehe hopefully you guys can come up with something cool
