Hi.

I've imported an FBX object for my character to hold, but it's too large.

The smallest scale on the import is at 0.8.

Is there any way to make it smaller than that?

Thanks,

Joe - you need to edit it outside of Muvizu and shrink it down.

Ah, if I only had something that could edit!

Any free FBX edit tools out there?

I think Urbanlamb will agree with me that the best free 3d editor is Blender. Since it can do almost anything but has a bit of a learning curve, I totally recommend it. Once you have it you can download the free fbx import/export module from their website (www.blender.org)

Hi Joe, You could try Milkshape - easier to learn than Blender but does cost $40. Or send me the object and I'll have a bash for you

Thanks everyone...

I installed a program called "Deep Exploration" - it allows for import, modification and saving FBX files (along with other 3d formats).

Worked well for my model. Might be worth a try if anyone else is looking for an easy converter / editor.

i have managed to turn a few muvizu users to "the dark side" and they are starting to use blender. I would not call it an editor though its more of a studio which is why it scares people but I think Mr hamster has managed to tame it as well. He sent me a copy of a toon car he was working on that looked really nice.

*rubs hands together*

excellent... Drink

EVIL!!!

Yeah, I'm sure 'll migrate to more complex tools over time.
Blender and Maya are in my future...

For now, I got a workable solution, though.

Thanks!
