Hi all, I have a problem using Muvizu that I bought just yesterday. I am ready to publish my first movie, but when I do so, even tough the previsualization seems correct in muvizu when I read the resulting .avi file I end up with a black screen. I do hear the audio part of the movie, but the image remains black.
I checked, from another thread that my avi file is < 2G and that's the case (lowered to 640x480 to obtain this size, the video size is 3 minutes and 26 seconds).
I tried uninstall and reinstall muvizu, but this didn't solved the problem.
I run Windows 10 with 16G RAM and Nvidia GTX 660.
If someone can help me, thanks in advance!
Cheers, Ranrik.

Try rendering half of the video and then the other half, then put them together in a video editor.

Thanks for the tip, MrDrWho13.
In the end that was just me doing nonsense, and trying to read the video file with the default W10 player, that just... can't read avi (on my computer, at least).
Reading the vid with FLV for example works just fine.
Thanks anyway, it's great to see that people are willing to help.

Yea that's what I do, for some reason it works better,and for windows 10, my brother and I have it, but when he downgraded back to 8.1, all of the same problems I have are nol.longer a problem, I'm thinking of doing the same after I finish my next video.

A tip for the future:
Most of the problems you get trying to work with avi can be taken away if you use the image sequence output. You'll need a video editor for this such as hitfilm or Sony Vegas to piece it back together but the advantages outweigh these minor difficulties. (This is true for many users including myself)

True that, I use Sony Vegas and after effects, if you make your videos too long you will get a black or a white screen, just find a good point in the video to split it in half using the Time line, then you will have a good picture.
