Abranimations is the original content creator of motion captured dances, encoded and digitised for Second Life. Abranimations has been in-world for as long as Second Life has been around. In fact the original default animations in your library from Second Life of 13 years ago are the work of its creator Abramelin Wolfe.
Times have changed rapidly from the humble beginnings of Second Life and Abranimations is still the leader in cutting edge real life motion-captured (mo-cap) single and couples dances, with sophisticated HUDS, dance balls and animation overrides.
Inside the store, apart from dances, there are also hundreds of other Toys and Gadgets to try out.
Whilst visiting London City you may have seen a tarot card table a mud wrestling pool, arm wrestling, spin the bottle, avatar cannon or an air balloon soaring in the sky. All of these are available in the Abranimations London store.
With such an incredible range of Avatars, fun Accessories, Dances, AOs, Huds and toys, you can spend a good hour or two, just browsing this immense store and seeing what is on offer.

When choosing essential kit for your avatar, such as an animation override, you cannot be too careful.
Unscrupulous people can get hold of third rate devices and add malware to items readily available to everyone, repackage them and pass them off as their own, complete with an intentional gremlin in the works. This was recently the case with a nasty device known as 'London AO' which contained a grief script and was distributed in another region to innocent and unsuspecting new users.
So when choosing items for you avatar, even an initial AO, always use a reputable dealer or a popular destination to obtain it from. If you buy from the back streets, expect back street quality. Never accept gifts from strangers or from dubious locations.
Plenty of fantastic and finely crafted accessories exist in Second Life and the major brands such as Abranimations have lots of free items that they are very willing to share as it demonstrates their superb abilities.
|Free AO from Abranimations offers super real movements|
Abranimations has been in Second Life since it began and is a real life company owned by Awesome Dog Limited, Motion Capture Studio.
So when it comes to quality, you can be assured that Abranimation products are absolutely top drawer and use real life actors to capture the movements digitally in motion capture.
We recently featured the Mood Hud an ingenious device that offers entire sets of animations, dances, poses and stands to reflect the mood you have chosen, but Abranimations offers a completely free Animation override for both male and female at their Mainstore in London City.
Each AO comes with 3 sets of stands, walks and jumps and is ultra realistic and smooth and absolutely perfect for everyone in Second Life, new or old. The added benefit being that a new user can experience proper high end quality mocap fluid movement animations from the very start.

Abranimations has released an AO complete with moods and expressions.
What an amazing and unique product this is for those of us who enjoy Animation Overrides.
Abramelin Wolf, creator of Lotus AO and CEO of Abranimations writes, This HUD uses all the latest scripting functions to create a low lag AO with lots of cool features. The AO allows you to setup all your regular animations as well as create themed groups of walks and stands that can be activated instantly at the click of a button. It also has a series of special features built in to offer advanced functionality including a swimmer device with realistic water physics. There are over a hundred animations included in the Mood HUD that we created in our 24 camera motion capture studio by recording the motion of real life performers.
When you choose a particular mood, the theme of that mood runs throughout your stand, walk, run and sits, complete with accompanying facial animations.
If I choose 'scared', I fidget, my hands twitch nervously and come up to my face, my knees tremble and my face takes on a frightened appearance. As I walk, my steps are smaller and my legs are slightly bent to make me appear very timid.
When I pick 'confident' as my mood, my stand is with my shoulders out straight, I swagger left and right a little, a self-satisfied expression comes on my face and when I walk, I take bold and assertive steps.
When I am 'angry', I become quite menacing. My face and eyes clearly show my fury and my stand pose is aggressive. I shake my fists and wander around in a barely contained rage. My walk is with my back straight, shoulder and arms out as square as they can me to emphasise that no one should mess with me.
'Elated' is my favourite mood of the 12 themes incorporated into the hud. It goes way beyond the 'happy' emotion and has me grinning and jumping about doing a high 5 and when I walk I hop around unable to conceal my utter delight!
As with all Abranimation products, all poses, stands and walks are motion captured from real life performers to ensure absolute reality and fluid movement.
You can add your own animations and favourite poses to the product and tailor make your own moods. So if you have a set of favourite stands and walks, you can encompass this into a mood without having to search them out in your inventory each time. Similarly if your existing AO has a set of animations you want to keep, you can migrate them into your Neutral mood.
With over a hundred mo-cap fluid animations already built into this HUD, this is exceptionally good value for money and is a very finely crafted and smooth product.
The Mood HUD comes in male and female flavours and is priced at 1900L and is available in the London City Mainstore here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City2/197/141/24
As with all Abranimation products, you can try before you buy and sit on the poses in front of the vendor to see exactly what you will receive in your package.
