Live! from E.V.I.L. (2014 Promo 1) Hi gang!

In 2014, I'll be making an entire "Live! from E.V.I.L." series.

To kick things off, here's a :30 promo:

Happy New Year all!

Suggestion: Multiple audio files per character. Hi.

I'd like to suggest a new feature: the ability to assign multiple audio clips to each character.

With this in place, it would be much simpler to construct dialog on the timeline by just moving audio clips.

My current work-around is to build all of the audio in a multi-track editor (Adobe Audition), then export each character's track to an mp3 file for Muvizu. I then assign the track to the character and leave talk on the whole time. A bit cumbersome, but it works for now.

Thanks much, and I'll be posting my next video in early January, 2014

Happy Holidays,

Multiple audio clips per character? urbanlamb wrote:
you can assign one clip per character (although myself i have never been successful into getting that process to work properly) but you can't assign more then one clip per character so you would need to assemble all the dialogue and mute the parts that dont belong to that character and repeat that process with the full dialogue again for the next character.

supposedly you can put it in one clip per character you just leave it on talk or whatever but everytime i have tried that including all the suggestions on the forums it has never worked (that may have changed since my last try) but usually only one character would talk no matter what I tried.

Thanks urbanlamb.

Yeah, I've assembled my latest movie that way. One clip per character, with talk on all the time.
Had to use a multi-track audio editor (Adobe Audition) to get the timing right.
Just would be easier if each line were in a separate file and I could assign them as needed.
Sounds like one for the suggestion box!

Multiple audio clips per character? Hi.

Aside from creating the whole soundtrack in an audio editor, is there a way to assign multiple clips to a single character?

Ideally, I'd like to have multiple characters in the scene, each one with multiple lines of dialogue.

Arranging it on the timeline would be much easier than using an audio editor first.

Please excuse me if this has been asked before.

If it can't be done, I'd like to suggest this as a future feature.

Good first Muvizu! The titles are especially slick, nice job

(just a pity I can't comment on Youtube about it - Google+ ? No chance. Gave it a 'like' instead).

Thanks for the "like" - odd about the comments... it's enabled. Maybe YouTube's having a meltdown again.

That works really well - nicely performed.

The intro (and music) certainly gets the vibe going; thank you for providing the link to the music site.

Helps that you have proper voices too of course!

Thanks much! Glad you liked it, and hope you enjoy the tool links...

Suggestion: Drag from Prepare to Timeline I agree with Dreeko - definitely as an added feature.

As a first time user, I found the "direction" model to be very intuitive.

... but I'd still like a bit more control over the finished product.

For workflow, I would probably start by directing, then adjust the timeline and add any missing bits with drag-n-drop.

(thanks for the input on this, everyone!)

Suggestion: Drag from Prepare to Timeline Hi,

I'm a fairly new user to Muvizu, but have used other timeline based tools.

As a possible new feature, I'd like to suggest the ability to drag actions directly from "Prepare" to the timeline.
You'd also need to be able to set their length and move them to the right start point.

This would allow for more precise creation of a timeline for advanced users, but still allow for the "Direction" ability.

Would be a very useful added feature for me.

Please ask if my description was unclear.

Thanks much for a great tool,

Greetings all! (JoeActor intro ;-) Hello everyone,

Just a brief intro before posting any vids on the forum.

I'm Joe J Thomas, aka. JoeActor, a voice actor in Los Angeles working in video games, animation, dubbing, commercials and promos.

My first Muvizu cartoon took 8 days to complete. Great program - kudos to the whole Muvizu team.

I'll be posting the video, along with full details about the creation process next Monday on my blog at Joe's Dump.
