Also, in the past, as far as "lag" during production, Muvizu staff told me I think back when I did one of my KISS videos I had SERIOUS lag time messing everything up, and they said try working in UNLIT mode, and then revert back to LIT mode when rendering. It worked for me on that particular set, not sure if that's help you though. Good luck! - EEF

yes this is not the case here its related to the new timeline stuff and becomes an issue with large sets containing 100+ objects

Muvizu:Play 1.0 timeline discussion oh that looks nice and its big and seperate from the timeline so we can like make it larger and smaller and not have to fiddle so much. I will be waiting impatiently of course to be able to use my mammoth sets again

Failure to plan is planning to fail! I spend time (even though the story is written) planning the entire thing out from start to finish otherwise I think I would go mad. I find that if its something of any length yeah you should plan. I actually do have two (half written) movies that one day I want to bring to life but I can't fathom not planning it all out scene by scene beforehand.

Muvizu:Play 1.0 timeline discussion yeah i wasn't commenting on it in that way its just when i posted the photo it apparently was too complicated unfortunately I dont see what else to do anyhow. *cough* would be nice if i could use muvizu play but my experience last night trying to load a set and work in it was the same except I got to hide everything in a single click but judging from the lack of lag (that should have occured as the items were removed from the timelines) when I clicked that Hide option it was just a visual fix and those eleventy seven million items were actually still loaded into the timeline even if i couldn't see em Cause i sure was lagging after i clicked hide
*begs once more for rollback*

LOVE the SCENE WINDOW and ALL that it does, like being able to select a ton of items at once and select to animate the same objcet property in one click like I did with the bikes, and then just adjust the timing in the timeline slightly

Didn't ever think of doing that - nice one EEF!

What if you took the old layout, plus the added features that now exist like snapping etc whatever (I haven't used it so I dunno), and display Timeline and scene window together side-by-side with linked-usage capabilities of the scene window with the Timeline?

Yes, yes, bloody yes! That is much better than my version

lol well that was my mockup but it was dismissed as too complicated unfortunately I dont see a whole lot of other choices the view scene window is manageable and it breaks stuff up into nice little groups it just needs submenus for each of the items so we can select. The view scene windows is something that we can obviously manage because its been there forever and it didnt seem to cause any issues.

Muvizu:Play (V1.0) Feedback Hi i downloaded the newest version and noticed (when trying to crash the software for another reported bug) that a "hide all" button was added..

So i loaded up a set that had lots of things in it..

it took 30 minutes to load when usually its 1-5 minutes depending on the set
and I tried checking in the hide all button and it hid everything, but
its just a visual fix i guess? because the set was still unusable

anyhow I wanted to at least try it. Its one of the sets (the railway junction scene) I just used in that latest superman video

*rolls back to 23b again*

Double click camera window - CRASH Hi there

i just tried this as I saw a thread with system configs similar to mine

I did a fresh install and removed every trace of 23b and cleaned the registry and has no crashes its on 64bit its the download dated today err


are people installing over top the old version ? say having 23b on their pc and it says that a new version is available and it asks you if you want to upgrade?
2013/4/16 20:58:22
Newer Version, same problem I have this system configuration pretty much on my pc same card samish processor i7 different speed and same windows so i will try this tonight with muvizu play. They just released a hotfix and it appears they need to hotfix the hotfix so for now you might want to try 23b you will need to remove all evidence of muvizu play to use it though. Uninstall completey , remove any stray folders and clean your registry.

Superman Episode 4 is done
2013/4/16 20:16:41
Stapling Squirrels crazy glue dries way fast and its probably easier to get on their little feets!
2013/4/16 20:15:13
Superman Episode 4 is done yes ziggy I would never go beyond the original splits even though I find some of them unnatural as I would have to remove the narrator and do my own and that would change the entire feel of the thing so that is definately not gonna happen. What I have been doing (the series was written in about 12-15 minute bits) is to combine two of them and cut the narrator from the beginning of the second half to have the stories end in a better place but the series was originally created to last 12 minutes and aired that way and was a kids program. I pushed it to become a bit of a more adult program length

New messages with Muvizu 0.23b you can say yes or no to the second question it doesnt matter as it actually wont install the content. The first message obviously say no to the update to muvizu play if your working in 23b until the play version is patched to your liking
2013/4/16 18:12:02
Superman Episode 4 is done I fully admit to being a supreme nerd :P

for anyone who is curious of demographics well the majority of youtube users (the platform for showing your creations) are between 13-17 and their average attention span is 5 minutes. ^^

My videos actually hold watches attention for a decent amount of time but I refuse to bend to the teen demographic just to conform seeing as I have never been much for doing what everyone else does.. anyhow I will think on the 15 minute vs 30 minutes again.

That's right. He was Kryptonian

I always found it ironic that superman is the model american yet the template to create him was basically canadian. I guess the artists chose what they knew. It quickly morphed and you have to go back to the origin of the first comic created to find this info. Anyhow expect to see a glimps of the CN tower in my metropolis one day I just have to get round to rebuilding one of the two sets I use for this :/

saving set error Well I might download tonight and give this a whirl as I made a short dialogue for something but decided to scrap the idea (too overdone) but its good enough for a short short (bit scared hehe) but I will venture into the unknown.

*crossing fingers*

Do you have a publicity for me ! you can check the muvizu youtube channel? for something? you can share/embed if you need it offline maybe contact muvizu?


or you want to create news ? Then you must do yourself inside muvizu and make a video.

Superman Episode 4 is done hehe thanks fazz yeah myself i am like you and always have 20 million ideas but I sort of tell myself not to do that and give myself a lecture about focus and finish. Its very hard not to rush near the end I think everyone has this issue. I tend to walk away if I find myself wanting to do that until that feeling goes away. I will probably end up sticking to the 30 minute format for most of it unless the story says otherwise like when this yellow mask dude appeared hehe.

As you can see from my dancing and singling fluffballs and all the other stuff I make my brain is exploding with ideas I just made a conscious decision to stick to this superman series for a good while and its becoming a bit more shall we say repetitive as I have worked out a lot of issues so the time I spend problem solving is going down.

I do want to make a good year or two of this superman stuff (i'm not well I think hehe) because I enjoy the recordings and superman was actually a canadian invention and metropolis was actually toronto and the daily planet building was the southem press newpaper building (well it was called something else at the time) so its got a sort of signifance to me although I think most people look at superman as an american he wasn't

Superman Episode 4 is done This is a shorter one because its an ending. I am actually not sure if I will continue with half hour episodes as the internet is filled with people with short attention spans .. at the same time I enjoy doing it that way even though I can fill up my hard drive with footage.

Anyhow if anyone has any opinion on 15 minute vs 30 minute let me know.. I enjoy 30 minute stuff myself but then a lot of people dont have time for that.. and then on the other hand some of these episodes end in horrible places so this was my motivation for creating 30 minute episodes because they ended in a better place

Coming Soon... Looks good ziggy and yes that Emissive setting is rather handy I have made some interesting neon signs with it. Your prison definately looks like a prison

woz there are two ways I have used both
you define areas as alpha on a texture same way as if you make a tree or something and need a transparent background and import as setting alpha to the emissive layer then only the alpha layers on your texture will glow .. for this you need a proper uv map

or you can just import an entire object and set to emissive and then the entire thing lights up if you are not needing specific parts to glow
