Hi,
I have seen pictures that are not from a muvizu set within a muvizu scene, how do I do that? I want to take a picture from somewhere online and put it in my movie. The usual jpg format. As well as an mpg file to play in the background. Is this possible? Help?
Thanks

It's a bit cumbersome but Muvizu allows you to change whatever background media you like.

Click 'Create' then 'Backdrop' (in this instance we'll choose 'widescreen' ) click Create and a beat-up old curtain appears. Close the create window and click on the curtain, You'll get a Widescreen window and under 'edit' - 'properties' when the Properties opens there is a tiny thumbnail 'Image'

When you click on 'Image' it shows the current image, and a delete button, look down at the bottom left corner there is an 'Import' button which will open up a browser window, pick your image file and bingo. - It'll tell you if the image is too big. It doesn't do floors at the same time and to make floors I found tricky so . . . green screen!

To make a green screen backdrop, choose 'New scene' window - pick the first (blank) one. When your scene loads up you go to 'Edit" - scroll down to - Edit environment - Favorites - Green Screen. - it even has dynamic shadows. Use video editor to combine. tada!

Thanks. Worked perfectly for the pictures. Couldn't get it to import video, but I'll live.

Only certain video files will work i have been using avi's with an xvid codec with success but i'm sure others will work.
