Animating both accessory and the avatar with one product

I have ran into a situation where I have made an accessory that should also animated the avatar, but then I have created an "accessory" that's actually based on empty clothing instead. If I added the animation to an empty accessory , the avatar would not have been animated. Though if the accessory r...

ATTENTION those using CCleaner!

CCleaner has been known as a trusted cleaner app releasing disk space and solving registry problems, but their servers were cracked and malware was injected by the hackers in their updates during August and September. This malware allows their creators to remote control the infected computer. Howeve...

Re: Messed up: Peer Review and Tiers

I submitted a batch of 12 triggerless animated accessories. They all went through in seconds with no bigger complications.

Re: ❀ Elaini's Realism In Fantasies

My Hand Stars have now been updated. Now they not only have particles, but an actual, spinning and flickering star inside a halo of light. All my improved hand stars can be found from this page: https://webasset-akm.imvu.com/resized_image/dproductdata/tmaintain_aspect_ratio/i%2Fproductdata%2Fimages_...

Re: Messed up: Peer Review and Tiers

Fast PR or slow PR, does it really matter that much? In the end... - With fast PR the items that should have been failed will be flagged. - With slow PR the items are most likely are most likely sent to the staff for a review, automatically. In both this or that the work still belongs to the staff. ...

Messed up: Peer Review and Tiers

Alright, so here we go again! Sorry again for redirecting you to the IMVU "forums" for news... but the IMVU staff made changes to Peer Review they didn't see fit to inform us about, and now some products have been stuck in Peer Review for days.

Three attacks in two days

Yesterday a car ran over people in a busy tourist pedestrian zone in Spain. Today there was two near simultaneous stabbing attacks in both Germany and in Finland - in the city within 15 minutes' drive from where I live. All three had fatalities, critical injuries and two had multiple attackers that ...

I know that as creators you probably know this, but I made this video mainly to spread the info about it to the customers - in all fairness, it should be common knowledge because ZCDs are technically cheating.

Re: Why are still avatars popular?

The real reason why Still Avatars are more popular over Animated Avatars is price. PEople don't want to pay 5k+ for an animated avatar, even tho in the end you are more likely spend just as much, if not more, in the long run, for additional poses to stand in. VisNova's avatars can cost more though,...

Sometimes when I'm in the same room with just one avatar with loads of particles and other effects on it, my fan starts getting really loud in the "whoa there, I can't even" kind of way. I just replaced the thermal paste of my GPU (with the good stuff) a few days ago after blowing all the dust off w...

Re: Why are still avatars popular?

But the still avatars are more looking like dead to me, no movements, no eyeblinking, and a death-stare to who-knows-where. I also prefer the avatars to display a wider range of emotions and awareness (reactions) to the surroundings, feeling more like human actors compared to a marionettes, automat...

Like in the case of DaddyOFive, a YouTuber with massive support from his fans for videos where he abused his children that have now been taken away from him. I don't see using down vote button as the priority in such a case, but rather the flag button. It's an issue for the staff to solve. Down vot...

Re: Why are still avatars popular?

I love the realistic animations of a breathing and blinking avatar..the ones who are "heavy breathers", (the chest goes up and down rapidly)...are the ones that freak me out...like, Um, you gonna hit me? Are you having a heart attack? Do you need a time-out? lol. And yes Zara, I agree about the gli...

Each to their own... but I mainly find it a bit strange that many avatars in the same room don't even breathe or blink.

Rate the IMVU staff competency

Use 1-10 as a scale and tell us why. These are not the official forums so the criticism is allowed, and I'm curious.
