What A Spotlight!

*** She walks into the room her wedge sandals sliding across the floor as her hips sway. Looking over her shoulder she motions for someone to follow, and nine men carrying canvases come in behind her. As she sits at the desk they begin to place the canvases on the wall. ***

Hello, everyone, it is been far too long since we all chatted. I have been looking over the Flickr this evening; I must say, you guys are doing some amazing work. I am looking forward to sharing some of it with you. So let's get started... 







Congratulations all of you! I am always amazed by this stories that photographs can tell. I look forward to sharing more work from amazing photographers with you guys very soon. Don't forget that you can try a fully functioning demo of LUMIPro at our world headquarters. You can also find us on the marketplace. Well until next time... Happy Shooting!

Spotlight Time!

*** She walks into the room carrying a beach ball in one hand and a satchel in the other. Putting the beach ball down, she pulls out several photos and begins hanging them, before turning to speak with you. ***

I do hope that everyone's enjoying their summer. As you can see my helpers are not here today. At least I don't have to worry about their opinions on the artwork I chose. It is been far too long so I thought it was time for a LUMIPro spotlight. Let's do it!

I just love each of these photos. Congratulations everyone! I can't wait to see you guys again. Until next time... Happy Shooting!

*** Grabbing her beach ball she tosses it a playfully before moving towards the exit. ***

A Delicious Spotlight!

*** She walks into the room wearing a zebra print swimsuit, her hips sway, and you hear her bare feet slide across the tile floor. She sits at the desk and slides her long red hair behind her ear before ushering people, carrying photo frames, into the room. She looks up with a playful smile. ***

Hello everybody! I hope everyone has been enjoying their summer, and that you all are taking lots of pictures! With all of the deliciousness being added to the Flickr group I thought it was time to share some of them with you... 



I hope you all enjoy these spotlights as much as I do. If these artists are new to you I encourage you to take a peek at their photo streams.

Well until next time... I am off to the beach. Happy Shooting!

*** She slowly stands and then heads towards the door. She stops for a moment looks over her shoulder and gives a playful wink. ***

2017 HUD Version 2 Update Released Today!

Samantha and I are happy to announce an update to the 2017 HUD.  This update was about refining a few features and fixing a few bugs.

To update to the new HUD just wear your LUMIPro 2017 (not the beta). If you have issues updating try reseting your scripts. 

To transfer your animations and presets just use the backup/restore server and copy all your animations and scenes from the old HUD to the backup server then wear the new HUD and select restore.    Here is a video describing how to use the backup/restore server (the video is slightly older and I've changed the look and feel of the server, but it works the same).

I want to give a special thanks to the best testers. Can't do my job without you.  A special call out to Graeme Little for offering several bug sightings!

Change list (in no particular order)

  • options->rez backup server fixed
  • Saving a scene removes the old scene name
  • Clicking a sitball no longer resets location
  • Cycling the power button no longer shows the balls and preserves alpha
  • Large pose file names now shows better on the display menus
  • Pixel cleanup on the sliders
  • Deleting a single pose no longer resets to the top of the list
  • Scene checks animation exists and issues pop-up if not vs throwing a script error
  • Sit ball joystick in/out no longer moves the projector
  • Projector menu now added to final LCD location
  • Wearing the backup server no longer displays yellow text on a teleport
  • Cataloging will stop if close to memory full
  • Pressing the animation stop button doesn’t request an animation unless there are outstanding poses
  • Attempted to reduce texture sizes to prevent slow performance message (still there sadly)
  • After filing all 10 models the HUD gracefully is full
  • Scene restore of a camera only position no longer does an eye animation request to the model.
  • Delete All now works with pose filters (example: you can now delete all poses with the word “SIT” in them.
  • Faster post catalog reset with a large number of animations
  • New feature:  You can transfer a scene to a friend with a LUMIPro
  • Now you can type “YES!” to deleting an animation and you won’t be asked each time
  • The joystick now selects projector when selecting the black ball on the color menu (convenience)
  • help notecard updated
  • change server updates to the new release (won’t work on beta, ignore the update message)

Dixmix Gallery and LUMIPro Present "Switch On The Lights"!

*** She walks in carrying a big easel after sitting it next to the desk she turns toward you with a smile. ***

Hello, everybody! It has been a little while I hope everyone has been taking some great photos to lead into the spring season. Spring, however, is not the reason I brought you here today. LUMIPro is excited to be working with Dixmix Gallery. Together we are bringing you the "Switch On The Lights " art exhibit!

The photos on display are a collection of work created by various LUMIPro artists. I will not ruin the surprise by telling you who the artist are; you will have to come see the show. 

*** Winks ***

If you have never been to the Dixmix Gallery I strongly encourage you to go take a peek. Here's a little more information about the gallery and their team from Dixmix himself...

The DiXmiX Gallery offers a large foyer area and three halls for art displays – the Black and the White Gallery Halls with the Grey Gallery linking them. Art in these halls may be split over two levels, the ground floor and a mezzanine area, while a music venue, The Atom completes the major facilities.
DiXmiX Gallery with his modernist architecture is a place extremely realistic dedicated to Art, Photography, and Music where you can hang out with nice people.
Events are organized several times a month
Designed by Megan Prumier and curated by Dixmix Source, both Co-owner respectively known as the cute boss and the other boss.
Photographers and bloggers are invited to post their pictures shoot in the gallery’s Flickr Group.

This is by far one of my favorite galleries. The show will be taking place on April 8th at 12 PM SLT. I hope that we can see all of you there to support our artists and their beautiful work. Don't forget to dress to impress! I hope to see you all there tomorrow. 

Until then... Happy Shooting!

What Can LUMIPro Offer You?!

*** She opens the door, and with a smile, she ushers you in the gallery. ***

Feel free to take a look around while we chat. I know that many of you have been trying to decide whether LUMIPro is right for you. I thought I would see what I could do to help by sharing some information with you.

What is LUMIPro?

LUMIPro is a professional grade lighting tool and yet easy to start using the day you buy it. 
•    Fine control of lighting and shadows
•    Ability to pose yourself and/or all your models and groups as large as 10
•    Ability to save your scene lighting, camera, pose, and eye position and restore it on another day, even with different models
•    Shoot anywhere without rez even on no-script sims.  Great for product designers and bloggers
•    Hold 100s of your own purchased or created animation or use over 180 animations and exclusive mocaps from some of the grid’s best designers
•    Updates are always FREE for life

I have seen so much beautiful artwork created with the help of LUMIPro, and I myself bought back in December 2013. I absolutely love it, but instead of hearing for me I would love to share some of her reviews with you...

Excellent !!!

I have been taking SL photos for over 9 years and not once did I know this existed. Than I received it as a gift and now I'd never take pictures without it. It adds the right lightening and the right shadowing to create the photo that you would get not in a game. It is truly amazing and between being able to add your own lighting and with lifetime updates you can not go wrong

If you want to take some really nice pictures, this is a must have. Easy to use and has lots of options. I only wish I had bought it sooner!

To take a peek at more reviews feel free to check us out on the marketplace. If you are interested you can also try a fully functioning demo at our in world headquarters. I hope you will like what you see! If you have any questions or need any assistance don't hesitate to contact me, Samantha Ansar-Buscaylet (SamoanHoneyPot Resident). Until next time... Happy Shopping and of course Happy Shooting!
