Hi,

I would like to see a function to add scrolling credits like at the end of a movie. I tried a hack work around like this:
- created credits in Photoshop (PS)
- rotated 90 degrees
- left a big space at the "top" (after rotation it would be at the left) so the credits would start as a black screen
- imported into Muvizu and placed it as a scrolling backdrop animation

This did, in fact make it scroll vertically (because I rotated it in PS) but I couldn't dictate when to actually start the credit scroll. So by the time I got to dropping the backdrop into the camera view the animation was already rolling.

I ended up exporting the clip and adding the credits in Adobe Premiere Pro (PP) and After Effects (AE). But it would have been nicer just to have added them in Muvizu instead of having to render from Muvizu, import and manipulate in PP & AE, then render again from PP.

Besides that...great program! (Except I have an animation where only 1 of the characters eyeballs moves...but I guess that's a bug so I'll just wait for a new version. lol).

The eyes you will have selected for the character is probably the "lazy eye" one which only moves one eye. All the rest move both.

Yes the one with the eyes where one pupil is larger then the other has a lazy eye and it simply doesnt move. I love that set of eyes actually and use it often

Hi moviezoo

You can do scrolling credits within Muvizu in 2 ways.

The first way is how you've described. Write out your credits in paint, photoshop, gimp or whatever and import the image. To get the credits to start scrolling at the time you want them to you can use the object properties feature to direct the speed or image.

Directing an image change:

1. Create your backdrop and position it as you want in front of the camera.
2. Edit the backdrop and change its colour to Black (or whatever suits the background you want)
3. Set the scroll speed to the desired pace
4. Go to the "Prepare" menu and select the "Object properties" option
5. Make sure the "Object" drop down has the backdrop you want to use (you can select the object just by clicking on it in the scene area so its highlighted with the red reticule).
6. From the "Track" drop down menu, select the "Image" option, the window will change to let you select the images (or colours) you want to direct.
7. Check the "Initial" image is the colour black, if not change it here
8. Click on one of the "None" thumbnail icons and import the credits texture you want to use
9. Click the direct button
10. Begin recording and when you get to the time you want the credits to begin just click on the thumbnail image of the credits you want to show, this will change the image on the backdrop to the credits and reset the position of it so that it scrolls from the beginning.

Directing scroll speed

1. Create your backdrop and position it as you want in front of the camera.
2. Import your credits image and load it on to the backdrop

3. Go to the "Prepare" menu and select the "Object properties" option
4. Make sure the "Object" drop down has the backdrop you want to use (you can select the object just by clicking on it in the scene area so its highlighted with the red reticule).
5. From the "Track" drop down menu, select the "Speed" option, the window will change to let you select the speed the image scrolls at.

6. Make sure the "Initial" value is set to 0 (no scroll)
7. Go to direct and begin recording
8. When the time gets to the point you want the credits to scroll at simply move the slider along to the desired scroll speed.

Hope this helps
