Abranimation - Motion Capture and Bento dances




Real Life Motion Capture Company Awesome Dog Limited  the creators of the Second Life leading animation brand Abranimations,  original Mocap dances and animation overrides, has a Mainstore in London City.

Abranimations has been a partner of  London City for five years, but the brand has been in-world for thirteen years and uses the very latest capture techniques, for their  bento dances; where multiple cameras track the movements of real life dancers and performers and  digitally encode them into virtual world animations.

If you check your inventory for Abranimations, the chances are you will find items ranging from toys, games, accessories, avatars, gadgets, dances and AO's from your travels around the grid, made by this famous company.  You can now add to your collection of the best animations by visiting them in London City.

CEO Abramelin Wolfe explained that, "Originally we lived near London and it is a very special place for both Wildcat and myself and seeing and feeling the buzz in London City, we knew we wanted to be here and that it felt right for our business.  I especially like the little touches that bring it all to life."

Talking about the latest innovations from their company he explained, "We have recently set up a brand new studio and we are working really hard with new fluid and exceptionally realistic animations, including bento finger animations, which can already be seen in our in-world stores".



Abramelin has also made a fantastic free accessory for London City visitors, a union jack style Mesh Avatar to go with some dances and mime animations.  "We made a special Brit one to give away free here".





Abranimations is located here http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City/31/129/24   All animations have a test pad in the shop which you can sit on to dance and try before you buy.  What's more - in this massive stores there are many other products on offer, including club games, stunt bikes, guns, a butt animator and an hilarious fish slapper!

Abranimations has also featured on the Drax files where Abramelin explains some of the company history and demonstrates the extraordinary lengths they go to in their studio to ensure the perfect detailed dances that we all enjoy in Second Life.

Singularity Viewer with Bento - Lighting bug now fixed



This is an update to the story originally published on 12th January.
The Second Life "Glow" bug is now fixed in version v6919 released today 8th February.

Download v6919 from the Singularity site located here:
http://alpha.singularityviewer.org/alpha/


The wait is finally over for Singularity Viewer users who have been waiting for Bento to arrive on their preferred viewer.

If you are already using the alpha releases, create a restore point, un-install the old version (your settings will be preserved) and head on over to the Singularity Alpha site and install Build 6905 to enjoy Bento in Singularity!



Bento head as seen on Singularity v6905


There is still a bug present which surfaced on builds beyond v6864 with objects using glow, where glow incorrectly shows unless Advanced Lighting Model is enabled.

!!This bug is now fixed!!
However, you can enable ALM and then turn off Shadows if you have a slightly lower end graphics card without too much impact in frame rate.  (CTRL+P Graphics tab).
You can also vote and follow this bug on the jira: https://singularityviewer.atlassian.net/browse/SV-2143


A reminder of some useful settings in Singularity:

Not seeing things that you know are there?
CTRL+SHIFT+V will reset the vertex buffers and redraw the area.

CTL+SH+ALT+C for Avatar Cost.   Cost and Weight can be toggled via Debug, see below.

Some useful Debug settings:

CTL+P > System > Security  autoteleport when region is restarting (drop LM in here)

LiruShowTransactionThreshold = 2 Do not pop up a notification box for amounts less than this value.
UISndRestart = UUID of sound to play on restart (replaces Torley Linden)
AlchemyRegionRestartShake = true  Shake the screen when region restart is imminent
ShortDateFormat  for European format:     %Y-%m-%d   change to   %d/%m/%Y
LiruLegacyLandmarks = true/false  Landmark saved with position e.g. (22, 258, 23)
LiruSensibleARC = False   Show new style render Weights not Costs
ShowSimChannel = True    Shows the Server name on About land top bar next to region name
LiruMapShowAvCount = True    Map shows amount of avatars on sim next to region name
AvatarNameColour = override the default name colours, you can still colour friends in vanity
LiruShowLastNameResident =  Turn on or off  last names ending in 'Resident' (on CTL+P too)
LiruNewARCLimit = Change threshold colour on Av Weight (suggest 120k value for >230kARC)
FontScreenDPI= (default is 96.0) try 104.0 for slightly bigger lettering
RadarNameSystem=3  Show Legacy (display)
FriendNameSystem = 3 Legacy (display)
GroupMembersNameSystem = 3 Legacy (display)
IMNameSystem = 3 Legacy (display)

Bento dances by Abranimations and Free Gift



Abranimations in London City now has Bento dances.
Abranimaions in London City
Abranimations has released new Bento Enabled dances.   You will need Bento hands to see all the animations, but they will also work fine on non-bento avatars (without the finger animations).


The animations are installed in a demonstration dance pad, so you can try before you buy.  Also by the exit of the store, collect your free Itchy Butt Bento animation for your AO.   Again, this works fine on non-Bento avatars, but those with Bento will see their fingers moving too!
