Ive wondered when can we have Custom Animations. Like making our own animations in Blender then importing them into Muvizu. That would sure boost the creativity in this game.

Hi raptormarlins,

Custom animations are one of the things that the devs are wanting to add to the program, but it will probably be a while before before they look at the possibility as they are concentrating on the engine upgrade. Also please remember that the devs are building from the ground up - no-one else has done what they are doing with the Unreal 3 engine, so any addition takes time.

I agree that importing custom animations would be a great addition - and while "The Movies" had custom animations it was in development for 5 years at one of the biggest studios in the UK - so they had plenty of time and resources to dedicate to each and every aspect of it. Muvizu has been in development since September 2008, so we are still pretty early on in the development process (and as such nowhere near feature complete) and we only have a small team - so any major addition, like adding custom animations, would require quite a bit of time and our developer's full attention.

Take care,
-Jim.

Older means they've had more time.
