Please scrap the "routine" a character goes through every time you change an element of his design. E.g. I sit Sinister down and edit his chin shape, he stands up and acts surprised and then sits down again, so it takes about 5 secs before I can do the next edit. It is just annoying and in no way contributes to the movie-making process.

Oh, yeah I do find that a little annoying, too. Although I wouldn't remove it, (it is kinda neat,) I'd like if they had a pose for when they were sitting so that they didn't stand up. While we're on this subject, I also found a bug where Beefy does his pose, and then his cape disappears. It's happened twice, but only when there's no other character in the room.

In what way is it "neat"? How does it contribute to me creating a movie? There are enough difficulties involved in working with Muvizu without having pointless "eye candy" exarcebating the situation.

I disagree. Maybe it could be added as an option, but I too find the additional posing to be cute, and makes the experience a bit more enjoyable, and adds considerable charm to the program over others. When push comes to shove, Muvizu is a fun program to use, not specifically targeted towards hardcore animation producers, and a bit of charm like this is always welcome.

OK let me rephrase my original post:-

Please make the "routine" a character goes through every time you change an element of his design optional. E.g. I sit Sinister down and edit his chin shape, he stands up and acts surprised and then sits down again, so it takes about 5 secs before I can do the next edit. In my opinion it is just annoying and in no way contributes to the movie-making process.

yep its a pain in the backside. going through the old "oh me hair has changed" routine everytime is just annoying. especially if you are trying to make an asset and you're trying to make fit properly bit by bit changing its position and size. after the millionth hair,nose or whatever check routine it gets a wee bit irritating.

Primaveranz - You're right, it is pointless, but can't you just ignore it and plough on? I can't see that it stops you doing anything .

Yeah it is not a showstopper but like Fazz says, you change something's position by a millimetre - wait 5 secs - change it again - 5 secs.
If it was optional, then those that get a kick from watching the same little gimmick ad nauseum would be happy, and the rest of us would have a least one less irritation in the minefield that is the current Muvizu workflow.

Yeah, I think it would be better as an option, for us who enjoy it. (With the default being "Off," of course.)

As a beginner I must say that the whole family loves the novelty of characters' self-examination, but I suppose it will become tedious after a week or two. I vote for "tick to disable" as well.
