Hey guys, anyone tried 'Muvizu' - its a fairly new animation program from a scottish-based company, its just gone into Beta, and its free. No limitations as far as I can see, you can render out in 720P and build a huge set. Its not really a competitor to Moviestorm or iClone, as its very cartoon-based, and I guess it could be called Machinima, as it uses the Unreal 3 game engine.

Very simple to use. Animations are made in real time over a series of run throughs, so you'd animate one character, rewind and do another character and so on, finally making tweaks in the timeline, rendering out and uploads to Youtube directly, or you can post-produce it.

For those of you using 'The Movies' and find Moviestorm or iClone too difficult, I'd highly recommend it, the company provide video tutorials on the site to show you how it works.

Anyhoo, I've just made my first movie using it, took one evening to make including a little Adobe after effects post production, heres the TMU link : http://www.tmundergr...vizu-Generation

(oh, and as usual, its very silly and stupid)


Cheers,

Silly, stupid, yet clever and funny - good film.

I think the bobble-head characters will probably limit it's use for something more....ummm, shall we say serious and dramatic....but for a unique looking comedy, it's ideal.

We discussed this program back in Novemeber 2009 here. Sherwin Liu (Mr. Chatnoir) pointed it out to us.

It has gotten a lot better since then but still has some limitations on what you can use it for since it does look cartoony. I Have kept up with the changes in it and they just updated on the 19th of this month to 3D.

The one major drawback I see in it is the Muvizu logo is always there. There is no way as of now to render your projects without it.

Here is a new announcement for Muvizu who is teaming up with GMAC for a screening of their product.
