It would be lovely! Is it possible? I everytime I revisit Muvizu and start getting a groove on; I hit a brick wall

It is not possible. What specifically were you trying to achieve - one of us may have an idea of how to do it......

Hi Berty

One of the sets/scenes has some lovely tanks. I made the tank move all nice. But when I popped my character in the tank he popped out when it started moving. I realize at this point you can not "bind" characters and objects (argh). He would not be doing anything but smiling. I guess I am looking for and export feature that does not exist yet :-)

Hi blickfang,
There may be a work-around, but it depends on you having Play+ and using an imported tank instead of the one that comes with MZ...
If you tick both boxes, then perhaps you could try importing the tank as an attachment to your character.

Failing that, you may have to resort to scrolling the scenery past the static character+tank!

I like your invention, but attaching the tank to the character would make it difficult to move as you would have to make the character walk. The tank would then flap about along with the body part to which it was attached.

If I were doing it I would probably greenscreen the tank and character combo and then stitch it altogether in post.

Scrolling backdrops would also work depending on the shot required.

What would be cool is to at least be able to group the character to the object. In this case, the character fits so nicely in the tank, its a darn shame the character can't take the tank for a spin? Is there a work around to group them? Is there an exporter in the works?
