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!

LUMIPro Loves Spotlights!

*** You hear the sound of her heels before she ever comes into view. When she sees you her eyes sparkle as a grin plays across her lips. She absentmindedly adjusts her dress and the lace follows her every curve. Your eyes cannot help but follow the line of her legs down to her cherry red heels before moving back to her face. She winks as she ushers in several men carrying photo frames and wearing suits. ***

Hello, everyone, Stefan has been a busy bee (don't worry we will share details soon) in the meantime I thought I would share some amazing photos with you guys. Let's do a spotlight!




As you can see I had to stop myself before the walls were covered. I am always so amazed by the talent each of our users' displays. I hope you guys will always take photographs and find new ways to express yourself. 

Don't forget all photos are chosen from LUMIPro's Flickr Pool. If you want to see more amazingness go take a look!

As always if you have any questions or concerns you can contact me, Samantha Ansar-Buscaylet in world. Until next time... Happy shooting!

*** Once again she walks across the room and you are distracted by this way of her hips and the clink of her heels against the floor. As she reaches the door she slowly turns looking over her shoulder she gives you a playful wink. ***

LUMIPro Presents Virtually Beautiful!

*** She stands in front of the gallery door the motions for everyone to come closer. The sparkle in her eye gives away the fact that the LUMIPro team has been up to something. ***

Hello, everybody! I know it has been a while, but I have something exciting to share with everyone. This month the LUMIPro team is excited to present, "Virtually Beautiful." It is a collection of work created by different photographers within the community. 

This particular show shares photographs from 26 different artists! Those artists are...


Congratulations to each of them! I know events like this make the LUMIPro team wish we had a bigger gallery. We look forward to doing more events like this in the future. All of the photographs for this show were selected from LUMIPro's Flickr Group

The First LUMIPro Spotlight in February!

*** She walks into the room carrying a pot of coffee and chocolate cupcakes. Sitting them down at the desk she has a seat before motioning for the other people to follow her. Men dressed in scuffed up work jeans and cut off flannel shirts start taking old photos off the wall and adding new ones. After giving them a wink and a smile she finally turns to you. ***

Hello, everybody! Feel free to help yourselves to some refreshment. I was having a hard time sleeping last night, and I got to thinking; which could be a very dangerous thing. As I was laying there I started looking through the LUMIPro Flickr Group, and I decided it was time for our next spotlight!


Everyone did such a wonderful job! I love seeing how LUMIPro helps each of you to bring your artistic visions to life. Don't forget for the opportunity to be featured in a LUMIPro Spotlight you must be a LUMIPro owner, you must post your photos to LUMIPro's Flickr Group, and your photos must be downloadable.

If you have not yet tried LUMIPro don't fret we have a fully functioning demo at LUMIPro World Headquarters. Why not go give it a whirl? As always if you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me or any member of the LUMIPro Staff.

Until next time... Happy shooting!

*** As she waves bye to everyone she motions the men who hung the pictures to come on over. Pouring them a cup of coffee and handing them each a cupcake she can't help the cheeky grin that comes across her face. ***

Another Great LUMIPro Spotlight!

*** She stumbles into the room, and she is definitely not wearing normal style, instead she has on cargo pants and a big poofy jacket. As you look closer you see that she's carrying a fishing pole. Sitting her tackle box and pole on the desk, she takes a seat and turns towards you with a smile. ***

As you guys can see it definitely hasn't been my typical weekend. While I was sitting out there on the boat I couldn't resist looking through the photos in LUMIPro's Flickr Group. With all of the great photographs that everyone has been posting, I felt like I had to rush right over and share some with you.

Let's get this party started...


This barely scratches the surface of the wonderful art our photographers have to offer. Congratulations to each of you on a job well done! To check out more wonderful photographs created by our users take a peek at LUMIPro's Flickr Group 

If you haven't had the chance to try LUMIPro we have a free demo in our sales gallery. Right now our gallery is showing the beautiful photography of Athena Mariposa be sure to check out her show while you can!

Well, I think it's about time I got back to my weekend. I will see you guys soon until next time... Happy Shooting!

*** Getting up from the desk she grabs her pole and tackle box, and as she heads for the door she gives everyone a playful wink. ***

LUMIPro Presents Athena!

*** Walks into the sales gallery to stand by the gallery sign for Athena. She smoothes out her dress before addressing the crowd with a smile. ***

I wanted to remind everyone of the show opening taking place in the LUMIPro gallery this afternoon at 3 PM SLT. We will be honoring one of our very own users, Athena Mariposa (athenaisc Resident). 

I have seen a sneak peek of her photography, and I promise you will be disappointed! The show entitled "Lovers" takes you on a journey to explorer many different aspects of love through photography.

I hope we will see you all there! We will have our very own DJ LUMIPro, Mesostopheles there to keep you entertained. Just a small reminder this show does contain artwork of an adult nature so please no child avatars.

*** With a smile and a wave she sneaks into the next room to check over last-minute preparations. ***

The First LUMIPro Spotlight Of 2017!

*** She walks into the room rocking a black dress with a gold sequin pattern as well as gold shoes. As she makes her way to the desk she ushers in eight well-dressed men. While they put photos on the wall she turns toward you with a smile, but then an apologetic look comes across her face. ***

What? I know New Year's is over but I just can't seem to hide this dress back in my closet, hehe. I hope that everyone has had an amazing start to 2017. If the photos in the Flickr group are a hint, I think this is going to be a great year! I am really excited about all the awesomeness I'm seeing. I thought today we would do the first spotlight of this year. Are you guys ready?!

I think these photos are just wonderful! I love how everyone who uses LUMIPro has different styles and techniques. When I look at the Flickr pool every morning I always find something I wasn't expecting. It definitely makes my job harder when I'm choosing spotlight features. 

Don't worry if your photos have yet to be featured in the spotlight, they still can be! If you are a LUMIPro owner just add them to the LUMIPro Flickr Group, make sure they are shareable, and make sure they are downloadable. You never know when yours might be chosen!

If you ever have any questions or concerns don't hesitate to contact me or any member of the LUMIPro Team. Also if you would like to know more about LUMIPro be sure to check out the rest of the blog or you can contact us to!

I will see you guys again soon. Until next time... Happy Shooting!

*** With a wave she waits for everyone to leave, then she goes home to raid her closet. Hopefully she will find something to wear! ***
