Playing with LUMIPro 2016 beta (and miss LUMIPro :D)

So I normally let Sammie take the lead on this blog and i've  kept my chatter on the beta over on the beta blog( but i thought i'd share a little about the beta with everyone.  I spent much of yesterday and today (probably about 16-18 hours) making the camera save work not only in the exact spot you saved the preset, but also to take that camera position in world and compute the current relative positon of the camera to the Avi.  There are some subtle limitations of the SL scripting language about what the server vs client knows about avi position etc.  It was some seriously bad ass math shit i had to work out.  I hated 3D math in college frankly  lol.  I threw my arms up in the air several times. It got even more frustrating when i made about 2 hours of code changes and SL crashed and i lost the entire prim with the code it it.  Always fun to invest in this stuff twice (NOT).  But i plowed through all it and today i took the new hud with the new capability that i took out into other sims for a first test spin.  Just picked an fairly random (although really cool) place on the destination guide with samme and shot.  This is the photo we decided to publish.  Sammie is wearing ball lights as well as the wearable projector which i used only to create a soft background light for the room.  This photo is raw from SL except for a quick crop in Photoshop.

I hopefully will release beta 3 in about a week and the goal is the full product release will be during the holiday season.   Sammie is collecting names of LUMIPro owners that want to be part of the beta 3 and beyond checkout.   Also we're working to refresh some of the animations sold mostly as demos.  If you know of any pose designers that want to trade a few poses in the hud for some publicity on our side, let Sammie know.

Tricks, Treats, Winners, and Beta Testers... Oh My!

*** Saunters into the LUMIPro Sales Gallery in her barista custome with her coffee and a grin. Taking a coffee maker from the cabinet behind the desk she places it on the desktop and turns on. Finally she turns to the crowd with a smile. ***

LUMIPro Supports Photos For A Cure!

*** Walks into the broken half gone LUMIPro sales gallery and looks up at everyone's surprised faces. Walking to the desk her heels click against the floor before she has a seat. Look back up at all the confused faces she again smiles. ***

Oh, that small mishap? It is only half of a building... We think Second life might have done voodoo magic to make it disappear. We should have it back up soon. In other exciting news I want to tell you about a great photo contest going on at the moment. It is The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Photo Contest! While we here at LUMIPro were unable to sponsor this year, we were pleased to donate a LUMIPro Photography Hud as a part of the first prize! The sponsors this year are Skyy Games and Paramour Studios, the theme for the photos this year is ''The Beauty Within.'' For rules and details please check out their blog. The contest only goes until the 18th so get those shutters going! 

Stefan and I are always happy to support events like this. If you have an event you would like us to get involved in. Please just drop me, Samantha Ansar-Buscaylet, a detailed note card and we will see what we can do. Well good luck in the contest, and until next time... Happy Shooting!

*** She slowly gets up from her chair straightens her skirt and walks to the door her hips swaying as she goes. She pauses for a moment before turning back with a mischievous gleam in her eyes. ***

Oh before I forget, we are shooting to have the new beta out this coming week... I love a good tease, don't you? I will be seeing you guys soon!
