Hey everyone. First time poster here, so I apologize if this is not the right place.

BUT...Is there a way to extend the length of a character action? If I have him stretch (for example), is there a way to extend that action as long as I want? There are "dancing" actions I want to have extended, but all I see is the ability to edit the start time.

Also, how do I delete a pose I created in the timeline? I don't see the pose there in the timeline?

Thank you for any replies!

Steven,

Welcome to the wonderful world of Muvizu...

Sadly there's not a way to do what you want, although I have used a copy of post production techniques to get round this.

Firstly I needed a longer image of someone meditating. I added the action and took shot 1. I put a marker in where the action started to come out of the meditation pose. I then moved the action so that the marker was in line with the start of the pose and took another shot. I did this 4 or 5 times. In post production I then did a quick fade between all these shots and the character looks like he holds the pose for much longer than is possible in Muvizu.

Secondly I have slowed shots down in post production using Sony Vegas so that they linger longer on certain points. This will slow down everything in the frame though so it may notice.

Not sure what you mean about the pose - are we talking something like "sleeping" in action > themes > pose - I have just tested this and the sleeping pose appears on the timeline and can be deleted.

Hope this helps

...also, there is an update for the program (hopefully) tomorrow, and it's just these sort of features that we collectively suggest (or plead for) that can end up in there. So if it isn't in there tomorrow, you know what to do

Thanks for the replies. Much appreciated! One more thing (okay, might be a ton more but one for now!) Is it possible to "copy" and "paste" and action on the timeline instead of re-doing it again?

Steven,

Sadly not. Again, it's on the list.
