A little while ago, we released a Muvizu version that contained a health warning - "may contain nuts" - but we're pleased to say that we've put an updated release out this afternoon that, er, contains merely traces of nuts.

We're pretty sure, however, that we've nailed the more irritating bugs and it's actually been quite heartening to see so much content created even with the previous bleeding-edge build. I hope that Mysto won't mind us embedding his teaser video here as an example. It shows off a lot of the musical stuff that now comes with Muvizu:

We can't wait to see the finished piece - and I'm sure that Status Quo will be magnanimous in their acceptance of a Muvizu user borrowing their copyrighted material :-)

Anyhow, back to the business of today's release. The issues we know about stack up like this:

  • Using the timeline to extremes - to record, re-record, undo, reorder and redo multiple times may cause a character to become confused and stop responding
  • When scrubbing through the timeline, a character may appear to slide rather than perform animations, or perform animations standing rather than sitting. However, rewind and play back again and you should find that everything is as it should have been
  • Animation blocks may be moved forwards but not backwards, so be careful of the order in which you record or to which you move
  • Character attachment changes are not covered by the undo system
  • If you put a decal on the back of the female adult character, it will colour her fingertips as well. (This has to be the silliest bug ever and had been fixed, but the fix didn't make it to the release version today so enjoy/suffer this while you can.)

As usual, we'd appreciate feedback on this release. Also, we've had a couple of reports of videos being uploaded to YouTube via our website or the Muvizu application which haven't appeared in our content management system. This happens usually when the copyright protection stuff kicks in (most of the time you can still view the content on YouTube but we can't display it on our site) but we suspect a few glitches somewhere. Any info would be appreciated.

We hope that you enjoy today's calmed-down version of the previous Muvizu release and look forward to watching what you create with it.

Best regards,

The Muvizu team

    • Dreeko - your version *should* check for an update for you. If it doesn't, you can download the latest version from the download page - only the latest version is there. I'll ask Robert tomorrow whether there is a problem with the automatic updater system. We disabled it for last time but it should have been re-enabled. Anyhow, let me get back to you toomorrow.

    • Hi Muvizu,
      I am really excited about the new updates and all the new content that you just released today! Thank you! When I open Muvizu it starts loading all the new updates and when it is finished, I get an error message saying "Unfortunately we can not update Muvizu at this time". Is there something that I am doing wrong?

    • Thanks pyrrho
      Got it now! I was trying to download the bleeding edge version from the old "feeling lucky" news post as I thought it was that version that had been updated.
      took the wrong end of the stick from the above news!

    • I doesn't appear as though my Muvizu performed an automatic update.  It shows v.0.13b build 2010.11.10.01R.  How to I get the program to update without having to download the full updated version and reloading?
      By the way, I am unable to log in within the program.  I've triple-checked my username and password, and they are being entered correctly.  I saw this mentioned on another forum and know that you guys are looking at it.  Just wondering if this is the reason the program won't auto-update.
