Photo Session: making your own presets for the FilterCam HUD

Join us this coming Thursday 14th of May at 11.00 am SLT on the Orange Island Photo Gallery for an introduction to the FilterCam HUD created by Codebastard Redgrave.

The session will consist in a short presentation of the HUD and a class about adding your own texture masks and creating your own presets for the FilterCam.

The FilterCam HUD is a very handy tool that allows you to make your SL snapshots much more attractive without using Photoshop or any other post-processing tool. FilterCam works basically like a standard camera filter and uses four distinctive layers to make various effects combos. But the most important is in our opinion the Build your own presets feature: you can add colored filters, overlay textures, and change layer transparency directly on your screen.

If you want to know more, have a look at http://vimeo.com/3401209. If you are using this HUD, we recommend you follow the instructions on Mechanized Life.

You can watch some works made with FilterCam published on Koinup by Solange Korobase and Clarrice Cinquetti.

Photo Sessions are a series of events in Second Life dedicated to help photographers share and collaborate. Orange Island and Koinup partner to make instructive events for SL Photgraphers and especially the Second Life Comunity on Koinup. We host events every Thursday at 11.00am SLT.

Codebastard Redgrave just created a group called: FilterCam Exchange whose mission is: to allow people to exchange FilterCam transparency masks through Koinup.
