Your 3d model is to big. ;)
It should match with the tiny bones. Then export the model again and without the bones. Do the same steps again with the mashmanip.

well..I was def. not expecting to run into that problem after the bones:ohmy:
Any suggestions for the proper way to reshape it? I tried to lower the scale in blender but..when I tried to export it..I got a python script error :blink:

Here is a little trick to get a clean and exportable TheMovies 3d model:
  1. Open/import your 3d model into Blender

  2. Import an other costume-mesh (i.e. from our downloads ) into Blender

  3. Rescale your model to fit the original sized TheMovies model

  4. delete the imported model, that only your model is still in Blender

  5. export your model as a 3DS-file

  6. close Blender

  7. open Blender

  8. import the 3DS-File into Blender

  9. texture your model

  10. export it as a TheMovies-Mesh

  11. edit your mesh with the meshmanip to fit the bones like in this tutorial

  12. that should give you a clean and working new costume for TheMovies

Well, I gave it another shot and nothing.
The attachment is what the file looks like in Blender after following your instructions. I have already requested enough I think and I am thankful for all your help. At this point tho, no idea what else to do. still same crash issue.

I think the problem is windows 7 :(

TheMovies and all tools are made for win xp.

I am guessing you are right. I did the bones in a computer that had windows XP since that one can run the program. Anyways, as a last try..do you think I could send you what I have and you could run it in your comp? ill send you the model and the textures.
