Hi guys!

Really excited about finding Muvizu. Ive spent the last day just watching the videos made by you guys! Wow! VERY entertaining.
I wish I had discovered this great program sooner! Oh well, here now!
I've used Max Studio and Lightwave in the past, as well as Photoshop and Daz Studio. But this has to be my new fave program.
I can't wait to really get to know the ins and outs and start posting some stuff myself.

I do have some initial questions, I hope you dont mind me asking.

Firstly, on initial 'playing around' with the program as you do, when setting up a new audio piece, when I click on the name box to name my recorded audio, Muvizu doesnt rename it. It just stays as 'unnamed'. Any ideas? Obviously I need to be able to recognise each recorded audio piece. I seem to be having fun with the aligning of audio pieces too, but Im sure I will figure that out. (If not I'll be back - in Arnie voice)

Secondly, and I imagine this could be an issue with many, is the actual 'voicing' of characters. I am not blessed with a 'radio' voice or recording for that matter. I'm sure there are many of us. Certainly if you need to voice many different characters for your video, you need a real talent. Audio quality is just as important as the visuals, so I was wondering if any of you talented guys had any tips for producing good quality audio (equipment etc) and any tips on the art of 'acting' out your dialogue. (Does that make sense?)

Anyways. I am so glad to be amongst you and hope to make some new friends here!!!

Cheers

welcome to the forum and to the world of Muvizu!


I do have some initial questions, I hope you dont mind me asking.

ask away! We have a number of veteran users here who watch the forum and do a great job of answering questions posed by new users


Firstly, on initial 'playing around' with the program as you do, when setting up a new audio piece, when I click on the name box to name my recorded audio, Muvizu doesnt rename it. It just stays as 'unnamed'. Any ideas? Obviously I need to be able to recognise each recorded audio piece.

I think that's a bug that most of us avoid by using Audacity or other audio recording programs to create our dialog


I seem to be having fun with the aligning of audio pieces too, but Im sure I will figure that out. (If not I'll be back - in Arnie voice)

I don't try to make videos in one long take. I create dialog based scenes, each having just enough dialog to manage it in Muvizu. Create a separate dialog file for each character as shown in this video:


Save each dialog scene as a separate set, and save the rendered video for your scenes. I label them scene, scene2 etc which makes it easier to reassemble them in my video editor later

Hi Pat!

Thanks for the info. I have watched the Audacity video and it was most helpful. Thanks for taking the time to make it!
I have also just discovered more tutorial videos here, so I will be busy taking it all in for a few days no doubt.

So pleased to have found such an awesome program.

Have a great day, and hope to speak again soon!

Nice to have you here, Scorpio. Make sure you keep an eye on this forum. The group is very knowledgeable and willing to help out when possible. The tutorials made by those who use them are helpful plus make sure you watch some of the animations so you get a good idea what is possible with work arounds.

Hiya - I love this software 'coz I use it to make mad video ads and stuff - very handy for any imaginary friend - especially one wivva psychosis thingy!!

The more you use it the more fun you'll have.

All the best - Andre
