Welcome to the Life Together Studio.

107 anims inc
To add pose anims or textures edit studio and drop into content box. If adding textures you must also add them to the HUD’s content box as well. Textures must be full perm
In this package you should recieve the studio, a HUD and two umbrellas.
Also please keep the receipt for any further questions or problems, please write your name on the receipt when requiring a replacement. The items are all copyable but not transferable.
For group usage make sure you are wearing your group tag when you rez the studio.
The studio has texture select prims, you view the textures and click on the one you wish to use. You can either texture the backdrop, floor or both with one texture. There is also a fast dial selection of 15 plain colours to colour the backdrops for quickness.
For small avatars you may shrink the backdrop so they are not engulfed by a big texture and stretch it too! a reset button takes the texture back to its natural state.
The pose floor requires no stand!! it has a unique system in sl that other studios do not use. You simply pose by clicking on the floor and you have a touch prim to scroll through the animations and control your avatar/s to move back, forward, left, right, up, down and rotate 360 deg left or right. You can move your avatar/s anywhere on the studio you like and a reset button takes them back to the start. An option button allows you to move the avatars in a fine movement for any fine adjustments or you can move them medium or quickly with a course adjustment tabs.
To use more than one avatar you when both or more avatars have joined the stand you use the previous or next avatar buttons on the pose control prim to toggle between who is to be moved. The name will appear in green above the posing control prim.
You can have as many avatars as you like on the studio using all the anims inside..they may be single anims or matching anims for couples but you need to use the controls to adjust the avatars to create your posing together. The best bit is you can create loads of different poses together using many various anims rather than just a couples set from a pose ball…so the choices are endless to your pose making.
Emitters are at the top and click once to start, twice to stop or simply click another emitter to change. You can change the quantity of emitter burst by clicking along the flow bar. There is also a ground smoke button and a rain button and to the floor a sparks button and animated flame can be rezzed.
There are props with the studio, a camera that takes over from your movement controls! sitting on the camera and moving your direction keys activates the camera view for left, right, up , down, forward and back. You can also rez a sofa, a table and a Gazebo for any features you might want to use during a photo shoot. You can maneuver your avatar/s around these props for great photo shoots
* You can add your own props too, click rez under prop and choose new prop. A shadow will appear on the studio. Place your prop ( advised copy perms at least) on the studio where desired and link to the shadow prim by editing the prop first then holding shift, click on the shadow prim. Then go to tools and find “link” once linked re name the item and take to your inventory and then take it back into the studios content box. You will now see the item in the drop menu for the props.
A note card giver button gives out a note card for people who want to use the studio or even the owner themselves with some instructions.
A security button is for the owner of the studio and can be set to owner, group or everyone.
The floor holds a lighting button, here you can choose 15 colours to shade the avatar/s thats posing and change the intensity/brightness and also range/distance of the lights. Also a on and off brightness tab all from a drop menu.
You may add your own poses ( copy is advised) but not pose balls themselves, just the anims that are inside or anims purchased from stores or market street around sl. You can also add your own textures ( must be copy, trans, mod) for sl reasons regarding DMCA copyright laws. Any textures you add will also be needed to be added to the HUD..but anims do not, only to the studio.
To add textures and anims simply just drop into the content box`s of the studio or the HUD in edit.
The HUD is worn; if you want to reposition the HUD on your viewing screen right-click and edit and drag the arrows so the hud moves to the position you require. it now will remain there when you wear each time from detaching. The HUD’s controls work in the same way as the main control panel of the studio.
Two umbrella props also come with the studio, you can adjust the height by clicking on the slider and also change the colours of the umbrellas by clicking the colour button or change the light shading by clicking the light button. a drop menu will appear for your commands.
