i have seen the videos of audacity
and it seems that you can change your voice with this program (which is free) so i am going to test it tonight and ill tell you.

Changes in pitch etc are quite effective with audacity...timbre (male or female) is something I've not managed to crack yet...but I'm sure there must be a plug in for it somewhere.

Yip audacity is good for pitch change and also if you wish to speed up or slow down audio without changing pitch then go for tempo change.

Group Movement Alas no
Animating a group of objects is not possible in Muvizu

They would all need to be animated separately

A Screenshot I've mulled this one over before.
The effect i had in mind was to have a scrolling view showing on the passenger window of a car by the use of masking and reduced opacity.

video injection Luscan wrote:

When importing video into Muvizu for use on background objects I tend to find that using Xvid encoded videos will give pretty good results. There's a lot of compression and resizing that goes on in Muvizu when you bring a video into the application. When we produce the Week in Review videos we tend to greenscreen the videos in later (that is, set the colour of the display in the set to a very bright colour and then use another external application to overlay the video).

Hope that helps.

hello folks!

The best codec for me has been motion jpeg, when it comes to displaying video on the television object.

Xvid was far too glitchy

Produce a tree being cut down movement I would suggest editing

Show a shot of the tree.
Cut to extreme close ups of someone swinging arms with appropriate sound fx
then show a cut down tree.
If you wish to show the tree falling then animate the movement of the tree object rotating it to the ground and only show the upper part of the tree during rotation and finish with a final shot of the tree lying down.

Character circles after movement Dylly wrote:
This is something I noticed just yesterday...and couldn't work out how to stop it. Any ideas anyone?

An example vid to show the problem please. I can't remember experiencing this one from how you describe it.

Group Movement As Dylly says, work around the problem.

You will come across a bucket load of these kinds of stumbling blocks.

Problem solving in Muvizu reminds me of the old Hollywood movies and the level of inventiveness they had to employ to create the special effects of the day -

They used back projections to give the illusion of movement (eg driving down a street)...
..and we have backdrops

They had miniatures to give the illusion of great distance...
..We have scale options.

etc, etc.

If fact Muvizu is a digital modern day equivalent of the early days of film with movie enthusiasts seizing a new technology and squeezing the life out of it to create their own little masterpieces.

Years ago moviegoers would watch a film with outstanding special effects and think "how did they do that?"
Nowadays it is just assumed (and rightly so) that it's all down to computers. For me, something is lost from the experience because of this. I want to be initially in awe at the effect, then find myself scratching my head in confusion at the mystery technique. I want to feel that the effect is clever and not that the magician has merely pushed a button.

This is what some Muvizu users (Jonbez, UkBerty etc) have managed to do..and ironically with a computer program!

I have played around with this software since August 2010 so I think I'm fairly familiar until I watch a shiny new Muvizu cartoon with some mystery special effect included and think "how the feck did he do that?" and sometimes when the solution comes to mind it leads me to think of a different effect that could be used at a later date.

Yes problems can be a great thing when it comes to Muvizu
