Just noticed that there is an update available.

I'm using Play+ - and the full version of the new update seems to be noticeable bigger (626.504) bigger than the version from 2016.09.07 (605.488) that I'm using right now.

I downloaded - and installed it.

It opens- and works well - with my existing sets - including i.e. Rodrisilvas flying pigeons.

Any further experiences with this new version ??

Seems to be mainly patches http://muvizu.com/Wiki/wiki/50
I've not heard of any bugs as of yet.

I struggle with Muvizu but I persevere and manage to make small clips. I use the trial to gain more experience and the last update I had was 2015.
Yesterday I saw that there was a later update, 2017 so I downloaded it but into a different folder with the intention of retaining the 2015 update if there were problems with 2017. It was a good idea, as I discovered a wrinkle.
When I tried to load the clip into 2017 it stopped, saying there is a problem opening scene and to use Play+. I tried the clip in 2015 and it loaded fine. Not sure why. Problem of course, is that I do not believe it is possible to buy Play+ anymore. Shame really.

It is the trial version. Normal Muvizu Play.
Might it be because I included an object I had created, namely a poster on the wall. I think it was a .jpg. Not sure how I did it now. I have also noticed many of the objects, characters etc available in 2015 are not available in this update but only for Play+. This might also explain why I cannot load the clip. Perhaps I have made a mistake and that 2017 is a more limited trial than 2015.
Thank you, MrDrWho13

Yeah you're right. I'm not sure exactly when it happened but at some point they locked down the free version to only the bare minimum to force people to buy the new version. I'll have a look through my installers to see if there is a newer one which retains the standard features in the free version.

Do you know which version you currently have? (You can find it by going to the question mark menu in the top right then "about Muvizu" - the release date would be useful)

Ok I've just been through the installers and the latest version which retains the features is 1.6 patch 3 (17th November 2015).
It seems they locked it down at the start of 2016.
Here's a link to that release: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-_4UVPr59ACVFB6S3ZJSUczcVk
Although you might just want to stick with the one you have because I'm not sure there were any improvements between these versions. You can see the changelogs here: http://www.muvizu.com/Wiki/wiki/50/muvizuplay-release-history

I think I will stick to what I have, and know. I will keep the 2017 update mothballed in the hope that it may be possible to upgrade to Play+ at some later date.
Many thanks, MrDrWho13 for taking the time and trouble. It is much appreciated.
Regards,
Rog
