Right!.... Today I decided to try and make a codec tutorial for the community, so I thought I would start from downloading the appropriate codecs and installing in a step by step basis and then moving on to preferences settings in the software that I use. Now this meant I had to remove the codecs from my system.

This was at 09:30 this morning
It is now 20:09 and my system is only now beginning to behave like it did before...

..I have been un-installing re-installing, tweaking, downloading removal tools and codec packs, performing system restores, rendering videos, re-rendering videos, tearing hair out, shouting, kicking furniture, buying more furniture to kick, kicking that and weeping in the foetal position.

I hate codecs....

...and , as you may have guessed..there is no tutorial.

The next tutorial will be on projections and lighting



..This is of course if I can ever manage to successfully export a movie from Muvizu again.

Well at least you tried, that's the main thing.
Look on the bright side, you have some new furniture and you know never to fiddle with codecs again.

My main advise is ..If your codecs work and you are happy with them then leave them alone!

I'm only able to render successfully 50% of the time now.

I hear ya Dreeko! About a month ago I made the mistake of "playing around" with the codecs on my system and had the same results as you. While things are pretty much back to normal now with my system it's not like it was before I messed with things.

If it aint broke don't fix it!!!

Really useful tip Dreeko, and what a lovely looking scene it is. Now, how would you do puddles?

The lights on the moving car are part of the car. No external lights were added. If you go to the object properties of the car you will see that the brightness of the lights can be adjusted. The lights which were added to the stationary car may have made your
mind think that the moving car had the same, but this was not the case.
