Hello, everyone. New here. Came across the idea of animating to tell stories.
I have done things in the past, but never knew this type of software existed.
Hopefully it remains free long enough until I get home.LOL

I have my own Audio Recording Mixing and Mastering studio in my home.
I also do video production, Premiere Pro and After Effects
Have a music video on my youtube.
I am also a vocal artist myself.
Also create video tutorials for free.

I am currently in Afghanistan
US Army Infantry. Will be home soon, and will be getting started.
Currently watching all the free tutorials to get a head start.

I excel at stuff like this, so I will learn it in no time.
Excited to get started, but have to wait till I get home around
Aug. 16 this year.

I plan on creating various types of stories. Some funny stories for everyone of all ages.
My daughter, whom is 12 will be helping with those.
We are going to be a team and come up with ideas.

On my own, I will be creating some crude humor, with explicit
content, for adult humor.

Look forward to working with all of you.
I would like to thank those at Muvizu for providing the software for free.
I will be able to give back to the community.
Once I become proficient at the program.
I will create free video tutorials on how I created the work.
They will be on youtube.

Hi Dozer,

First of all, welcome to Muvizu. Glad you found us.

Looking forward to see some of your animations.
Get home safely and let us know if you have any questions or if you are in need of advice to tackle any production problems.

Take care,

Thanks for the welcome. Been reading around the forum.
Hopefully able to finish this download. Internet slow over here
in Afghanistan. ahhhh.
Actually, my travel to the states begins tomorrow. Yipee...

I know I will be doing stuff in AfterEffects and Premiere Pro.
I am reading that most of you are exporting the video from Muvizu
as lossless jpeg/Motion Jpeg/ffdshow(change color space to YV12)
And then huffyuv, which I believe I read Jamie and Matt use
when going to After Effects.

I use Premiere Pro CS5 with Dynamic Link to After Effects CS5 by the way.
I also create some things in Photoshop CS5

Videos will be going to youtube.(other)

currently scouring the forums...watching the tutorials.

Welcome Dozer,

I use ffdshow and then a mixture of Sony Vegas to compile and then After Effects and sometimes Avid Studio for post. However I always stick all output from Muvizu through VirtualDub first. Although After Effects will take raw Muvizu output, I've found it to be a bit crashy - VirtualDub sorts this out.

Cool, I was able to download the 64bit Muvizu
Also all needed codec packages recommended.
Also have VirtualDub, just in case..
Flight leaves in 1 hour.
However, its a 10 minute flight to a halfway point.
Then there are others.
Then there is customs.

Anyway...will be installing later today.

My Computer: Laptop for deployment (My computer at home in the studio is a desktop.)
K, so, installed Muvizu.
I am in the File> Options section.
I am setting video to 1280x720 (HD 720)
Codec options right now are:

Microsoft Video 1
2) Intel IYUV options(same name)

I remember reading something about using the K-Lite product tweak tool.
Also while installing, I did not select any hardware acceleration for H.264 and
the other one either. Just a heads up.
I have the Intel HD3000 Card in this laptop.

The reason I am telling you this, is because, as I have said, I will be
be doing various things in Premiere Pro and After Effects.
I want to ensure highest quality options, and smoothest workflow.
Basically want to create in Muvizu, Export, then do some post production work, titles, effects
other in Premiere Pro dynamic link to After Effects.
Export final product.
So I want to ensure everything is on the Up and Up..before working.

Audio dialog will be recorded in Cubase 5 or Audition
I watched the audio tutorials.

I am not seeing a manual for Muvizu, I love reading manuals.
But its cool if there isn't one.

Hello and welcome.

Once you've tasted Muvizu, nothing will be the same have been warned!

Hello again Dozer,

By the looks of it, your machine can run Muvizu perfectly.

At the moment we don't have a manual, we are still in beta and things change all the time. It would be hard to keep the manual accurate 100% of the time.

Watched all tutorials, started directing.
Coming up with some ideas.
Practicing camera movements, pans, rotations.
So far so good.

Going to start out with all stock Muvizu stuff.
Except for textures, which I will create in Photoshop...
or download...

Start scouring google sketchup for objects and such...
