Do you have a personnal website ? i dont really trade links anymore i found that usually they end up being something you have to police because people tend to drop you off their list eventually so that its not a reciprocal link

but these are my sites

http://www.pixel-junkies.org (just my ramblings, rantings and life around pixels as a hobby I also run a virtual world server off the back of it that is like secret that i am not supposed to tell anyone.. oops although its down cause i am upgrading things back there and wanted to clean up my space before the hosting company complains..)
http://www.pixel-heroes.ca (all about superman its just a domain forwarded over a free blog hehe)

Chromakey, characrer in livevideo There are free options for chromakey as its a very common technique and actually pretty low tech several people have posted links to software that can do it. You dont need to spend money on adobe after affects for things like chromakey

Chromakey, characrer in livevideo hi there

you would need to use the green screen set that is in the sets options or make one. Then do your recording of the character and then use video editing software with the ability to do chromakeying. So basically the same way you would do it with other software ..record your character against a green/blue or other coloured background he has not got in his clothes or attachements and then use the make video option to make the video and import that into your editor and do the chromakeying.

Please Decrease size of Gallery Icons/ Pictures I'm just wondering if they need to rethink some of the gallery stuff eg: there are people/channels/users (whatever you want to call each uploader) who upload more then one video per day. I am wondering if the page should not revolve around "latest upload per channel/user" as well. Even if they doubled the size of the gallery uploads with the increase in userbase this problem will mean eventually people's uploads will only be there for a few minutes. So as well as increasing gallery page amount that it can show (it can only be so big really) maybe they also need to find a way to sort uploads by users so that each different person uploading only takes on spot at a time instead of potentially all the spots.

Dreeko Strips! I was doing posters at one point around my superman stuff. Its kind of fun to do the still shots and printed media around a video it feels to me "like a real movie" hehe

Suggestion : traduction of the website https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/

This uses their translator. You just click a button and it translates. Myself I have found these translators to be horrible if you understand the language partially the translations make no sense and so i no longer ever attempt to use them alone. Most translators work well if you have a basic working knowledge of the language and can correct obvious errors otherwise sometimes they do more harm then good Big Grin .

CRASH when I try to input a video on a wall okay I had asked this before as I saw you using what appeared to be an editor in your school movie anyhow there are some options

here is one


you can also do a lot of work using the youtube editor as well but likely not green screen

here is a blog list with a few more some of which I have seen before


I saw a few more on this forum if you use the search function you will probably get more info

The first video editor I ever used was made by avs4you and i still use some of the tools in that package it was super cheap. Anyhow I hope that helps. I saw you use an editor as i have stated in a previous post and asked you then about it

anyhow good luck. If your trying to use muvizu for this your limited to small clips that you can loop

Character picking up object? Creating a beer can? yes at the moment the only way to do it is fake it. I use stop motion a lot in muvizu (it works) but you need an external video editor to do it. There is a beer bottle I dont know if there is a can.

Newer version? well i did not post to this thread

in any event Hi

however if you are having trouble installing muvizu play dont use "upgrade" download a new copy. I am sorry I have not spoken french for 2 years so I can't think how to say it anymore

The Configure button when making a video hi there you will need to install some codecs most people use k-lite or you can chop the video in half and join it together in a video editor

make sure you install the codecs for your version of muvizu so if you installed 64bit muvizu install 64bit codecs or you will have some strange issues .



muvizu has no fancy codecs as they cost money for them to license.

CRASH when I try to input a video on a wall Yes it should work with standard AVI no special "wrappers" as they call them. If the clip is long its hard to get it to run. Anyhow you should have success using the codecs that muvizu installs by default (microsoft standard) . I am unsure why its not working. My only guess is that your trying to use it with a wrapper encoding which is very hit and miss. I can get huge avi files to run inside muvizu but the resolution is terrible and they are washed out on the background.

I guess I am wondering (since I can tell you have used a video editor in your last video) why you dont just use chroma keying. The results are superior anyhow and you wont spend 3 weeks trying to solve the dark arts of codecs which dont mix well

Really the avi on a background is really only good for short looping videos a few seconds long anything else its very hard to get it to run. I did run a cartoon on a tv set once but the set was very small and I didnt need huge quality as a result of the usage. For anything that is HD you can only really use a few seconds of avi clip before it gets too large for muvizu to handle.

CRASH when I try to input a video on a wall did you render the video clip you used the file in? because you wont always see the moving inside muvizu or are you just trying to watch the movie inside muvizu? if the clip is long it wont move well.

Urgent help on dialogue - talk and 'shushu' you need to prepare the audio per character
so go into audio find it and remember the name
then click prepare and dialogue and then you will have the list of characters and select each character and assign the dialogue. Usually I start with them all shushed.
then go to the direct menu and direct the dialogue and choose each character and direct for each character where you want them to pause and talk.

unless i am not getting something the reason its all talk or shush is because you haven't directed the dialogue so its at the default setting picked for a character

Urgent help on dialogue - talk and 'shushu' hi there

you need to go into the prepare menu and prepare each character and then run the dialogue for each character using direct and shush them in the right place

here is a tutorial the interface might be slighly different but the instructions are the same and you will recognize what to do..

CRASH when I try to input a video on a wall so the answer to the question is "trial and error until you find what works for you" haha basically. I find that everyone is different on what they find to work. I got tired of litering my pc with codecs and decided on a plan of action that "works for me" but I dont think there is any single all encompassing solution for this issue and I have encountered it elsewhere rearing its magical twisted obscure head of wierdness. I have come to the conclusion that its also linked with hardware for instance i have digital camera codecs for a canon that now renders video and a webcam and find that the thing that works for me best (this year) is the codecs that came with the webcam for most things. It plays nice with the rest of my pc

CRASH when I try to input a video on a wall is it like that when you render? because it often doesnt show real movement until the render. Myself I use plain old microsoft avi even though its huge. I never really got to be friends with the video option inside muvizu unless it was for an effect like water. I found the video output muddy for other things and turned to green screen chroma key for most things.

divx never worked for me lol.
