Downloaded objects won't open ah okay so its user created content. Some stuff is uvmapped and other stuff is not mapped if its made in sketchup its possible its not uvmapped and this might cause an issue. You can send the link of the object to muvizu. Use the support system and tell them it wont open and maybe they can fix it. There have been many coding changes so not surprised some assets are not working

Downloaded objects won't open this might mean you have not installed the content package it came if its as its a muvizu asset its installed hard coded. You can download the pack it came from and install it and then it should be fine


or if its not a muvizu object but someone in the community
you might also want to login to the gallery from the internet and download if its not a muvizu created object it might not just be wanting to install properly.

The Great Butter War haha thanks it started out before christmas but the idea changed as i decided to turn it into a bit of a musical and make it kind of abstract i threw it out and started again. I had a third song planned but i have developped a good case of arthritis in the last 12 months and my hands just would not cooperate with the music creation part they were getting very angry.

Muvizu Workflow I thought I would post this i found this article today. Its about how they bring things to life 'in modern times' CG and lots and lots of compositing is where its at these days now with the advent of such powerful pc's the sky is limit. I watched this show reel above when it was first posted on blender artists forum (me and my cg addiction) but i noticed today a link has appeared to an article where they explain how they achieved such shots with mostly pixels and just a few actors in front of green screens.

Archer is another astounding work they in fact create 3d scenes of the backgrounds render them out and then paint over them by hand. The result leaves you wondering if your looking at a 2d scene or a 3d scene.

anyhow here is the article on stalingrad http://www.cgsociety.org/index.php/CGSFeatures/CGSFeatureSpecial/stalingrad

The Great Butter War haha thanks fazz i dont know it may appear in the gallery I know they like watch every video before posting but since my contest entry never made it in I am not gonna hold me breath

that song possibly because i spent so long editing it and replaying it as a result is stuck in my head I was going to upload the song files and give em out with and without the lyrics just for fun people can make their own lyrics.

so "zoots zoots baby"

The Great Butter War Erm this it started out differently but it turned into something a bit abstract haha. I thought muvizu would work well with dr seuss stuff so I decided to tell a dr seuss story the butter battle.

Anyhow its purple and most of the sounds are made either by my mouth or a synthesizer and my mouth with the exception of a couple ambient loops and the opening bomb sound its all computer generated using midi software. Beware I sing .. twice so take some tylenol and bring some ear plugs!

not sure if its going to be in the gallery or not the gallery is sort of hit and miss these days as youtube rearranges itself every other week right now and they have another update coming soon again.. (i uploaded it via the site anyhow.)

Wonderful world of Wabby we are just messing around
2014/1/26 18:34:35
Wonderful world of Wabby hehe that evil other dude they are updating the graphics in it in version 6 looking very good so far. I wonder what other bells and whistles they are working on meanwhile *goes back to my muvizu video*
2014/1/26 16:46:08
Get rid of the pink dots yeah this is a bug not sure what causes it exactly I move blocks around and sometimes it works fine so my remedy was different. Just try not to mess with the animation blocks and i found renaming all the characters with a unique name helped a ton but maybe I was just lucky
2014/1/26 16:44:29
bunch of questions ... sounds like you have an onboard graphics card on your monther board however here are the system specs


here is more info on drivers and stuff http://muvizu.com/Wiki/wiki/53/drivers-and-other-system-software

Ase is another file format like fbx if you have maya or 3dsmax you can get a plugin to export in ase format although if you have them you probably should just use fbx format and ignore ase unless you want to make trees or something

Trying to upgrade getting error eh yeah there is a limit on the tries but they can reset it or give you a new code just send them a ticket via the site here they answer pretty quickly but its saturday so you might need to wait till monday morning (UK time)

T hey recommend opening a ticket as sometimes the email gets lost in spam filters etc.

Make my character move I had this bug I dont know if this is a fix or not or whether it will work for you however i noticed that i was using the movement on copies of the same character who all had the same name. I decided to rename all the characters by sticking a number at the end of each character and this bug went away. I was having horrible trouble when i started up this latest thing I am working on. I have not had this issue return since i resorted to renaming each character with a unique name. I think naming system is broken as its not renaming them as copies and its trying to decide which character named marco or whatever the move belongs to.

The first part of your comment is promising.
The second part, about "no one has responded" is incorrect.

that fine I only know those who are frustrated. I am not here to argue or get into it I was simply explaining their point of view some are feeling badgered. I was just trying give you some feedback on why some people are upset. If you have one who has responded positively then good for you.

Bear in mind that is a very low hourly rate and just a starting point and not really what I would consider appropriate if your asking for exclusive rights because they can't resell anything. If you want exclusive rights a lot of people charge 100 usd per hour which is what? 45 pounds an hour or so? because they will be giving you all the original files and never be able to use a single item in that file ever again

anyhow i am bowing out of this conversation because I am finding its about to become an argument of semantics which I dont really want to get into.

good luck hopefully you find someone who will do what you have asked at the price you want.

what is the acceptable rate? 1 pounds is about 2.5 canadian dollars so that sounds about right (I guess) but you have messaged people and no one has responded so for now i think your out of luck. I am not american or english i am canadian so I am using USD as a standard. In any event it appears you have no takers you might want to try again in a few weeks but try to remember who said no or did not respond. Your probably best off to learn muvizu and its highly unlikely anyone is going to sell you something they already made.

Your going to need to have a concept planned out clearly so they know what you want and if they can do it. Some muivizuers pay for set assets from other sites, others make their own. Sound is another issue again some pay, some make their own and some have agreements with companies etc. Some of us are better with some types of content then others. I think you will find that anyone who can or is willing to do work commercially will have put up a website link that describes what they will do for money. If they have no internet presence or their website is devoid of commercial information its a pretty good bet they are going to say no or not respond.

Those that do have an internet presence are fairly clear about if they will do something for money and what.

Anyone that has responded to you on forums from what I have seen is not able to help for one reason or another.

to all the things that you said, i understand, but to make this comment suggests that you know who and how many i contacted. i contacted less than five people in regards to the topic you are mentioning, and even then, this is not out of line, is it?

5 people is pretty much the entire community anyhow he is frustrated as is at least one more that I know of. Its the fact you posted on the forum they replied and then you contacted them privately. They read the posts and didnt answer or message this means they were not interested,but tried to reply to the questions on the board giving various reasons and still you are repeating yourself after they answered you. This is what someone does when they are trying to get someone to change their minds. Its well pushy its like the salesman that sticks his foot in the door when you want to shut it to prevent you from shutting it.

They have a choice to make are they gonna break your foot or sit there and listen with the door open or yell at you. Your not giving people a lot of choices.

what is the acceptable rate? I think you will find some of the users here are frustrated because your bugging them a lot. They give you an answer and your not accepting the answer or understanding. This is a very small community of users and your asking for things to exclusive rights over things among other things that really they dont want to give you.

You have posted so many posts asking for help and to pay people and then if they reply to the post you message them as well. So I will give you a figure which is somewhat accurate if i were to place a dollar sign on what is done in this software or other software because we must make assets and textures and even with muvizu take time to set up the animation and then we might have to edit said animation to create the desired effects its hours upon hours of work and people here do it out of love for the medium and dont want it to become work. That being said I think that an opening bid would be an hourly rate of about 40-50 usd per hour minimum to take into account the range of skills that might be needed from asset creation to video compositing and editing skills.

Add to that your also asking for rights to things which they cannot give rights to because its not theirs to give your frustrating a lot of people. Again I suggest instead of taking this approach that you settle down and learn how to use muvizu yourself. Your offering a price on something as if they massed produced it and are selling more then one copy not a price for exclusivity. This is what is bothering them they if they were needing to earn money would in fact earn it with greater ease and faster working at macdonalds in an evening. For all you know fazz might actually work scrubbing bogs at macdonalds. He is simply saying he could make more money doing that and its probably easier and quicker then to slave away for several weeks for 10 pounds which is what you can earn in 1 hour at macdonalds.

Anyhow I would suggest you change your approach you have been asking people to be specific about distribution rights we have tried to answer in the end though most of what is up in the gallery is so common that you can get it anywhere. As for the animations they are a labour of love and for most of the creators you have asked pretty much priceless. If you have a project in mind plan it out post on the collaborations forum and wait. However you have asked in about 10 different ways so far the same thing. You have your answers your just not accepting the information.

this is not a sign to message anyone of the people you have asked or myself to ask if we wuold do the work. I can pretty much predict that they will say no for various reasons. Post and they will message you or reply in a positive manner in the thread. What your doing is trying to convince people who have said no to change their minds. I dont think they will be doing so and I think some are feeling well badgered.
