Sketchup to Muvizu I've just downloaded Dylly's work (fantasy cottage) and it really is amazing. Quality stuff here folks!

Hi mysto,

I believe there is a workaround that will allow you to use the spacebar to stop recording by using the numpad to select animations.

When you have prepared the animations that you wish to use, press record on the timeline recorder then start animating your character with the 1 to 9 keys on the numpad. Then when you press the spacebar, recording will stop as the focus will have remained on that button!

I find using the numpad is much easier than the mouse as it allows me to keep my eyes on what the characters are doing whereas the mouse takes my eyes towards the cursor.

Hope this helps

I tried this technique a few minutes ago and it does indeed work quite well! It gives me the ability to create the actions in small blocks that can be "mixed and matched" into entirely new actions like I was doing before. And being able to keep my eyes on the characters instead of the cursor is really nice too!

I really appreciate this tip westport. Thank you so much!

Hello Everyone,

Mysto made a great point about the little marker lines that where present on the timeline in the older versions of Muvizu (the ones that made it look like a ruler). The developers have spoken.

Unfortunately they were taken out without intention as part of the user interface overhaul. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I have been informed that they will be back in a future version of Muvizu as this is something they are working on.

That's great news jamesriley! Now, what about that dragon for Dreeko?

Feedback Thread - v0.19b release (January 2012). I'm finding that I don't have the control over character actions that I had with earlier releases.

In earlier versions of Muvizu I was able to combine different actions to come up with entirely new actions. In the newest version its very difficult. Let me try to explain...

In previous versions of Muvizu when I wanted to record a certain action I would hit record, select the action I wanted, and then immediately hit the space bar to stop. I would then hit record, select a different action, and then immediately hit the space bar again to stop again. I would then move the second action bar that I selected around on the timeline so that it sort of "intersected" with the first one. The combination of these actions created a whole new "action" in the final animation.

In the new release of Muvizu when I hit record and then hit the space bar instead of stopping the recording it just repeats the same action over and over. I have to move the cursor to the stop button to end the recording process. This really screws up the timing of what I'm trying to do.

In the older releases of Muvizu hitting the space bar would stop the recording process, in the newest version it doesn't seem to do this. It just keeps repeating the action. I hope I'm making sense here.

Also, I REALLY miss the ruler marks on the timeline. In older versions those little marks really helped with placing timing marks. The newer version is a bit "hit and miss" for me.

Please forgive me if my explanation isn't very clear. I'm trying to say it in the best way I know how. I'm not complaining mind you, just giving my humble opinion.

Gun_in_Hand With the exception of being able to hold musical objects (guitars, microphones, drum sticks, etc.) Muvizu doesn't allow the characters to hold guns or other objects. Characters being able to hold other objects has been on our "wish list" for awhile now.

Happy New Year! Happy new year to my fellow "cult" members. I'm so hooked on Muvizu that I roll up both trouser legs. Looking forward to seeing what everyone creates this year!

New character? Dreeko wrote:
How about a morphing slider which would blend from young to old giving a greater variety of characters from baby to pensioner
I'm sure the devs could have that ready for Monday

We should at least give them until Tuesday! Toast

facial animation workaround Come to think of it I've been using this technique too and never thought about mentioning it. I have quite a few little things like this I do while animating that I don't even think about when I do them. I just do them without much thought as to what I did.

I'll have to start sharing my little tips and tricks with everyone. Good job Dreeko for pointing this tip out!

2011/11/2 19:46:14
On the News LOL! I've "fixed" a few things using that method before!
2011/11/2 15:32:56
On the News I know the feeling well Dreeko! I've been known to make a few computer components go "airborne" from time to time because of technical issues. Now I just yell at my cats instead. It's cheaper and they still love you afterwards...

Hope you get things worked out my friend! Toast

Eyes I'd like to see these requests too. I'm sure the Muvizu team has these suggestions on a post it note stuck to a wall somewhere in their office. Toast
