PhotoLite at the wheat fields

The other day I took PhotoLite for a tour at the Dreamworld North sim. Yes, where the beautiful wheat fields are. I wanted to try lighting on the fields themselves rather than the usual model or prop. Here are the results.

 

I wanted the grass to shine; you may be able to see some coloured hues on the distance. I used five lights with different colours in the yellow-orange range for these photos. The PhotoLite control box was sitting to the left, out of frame.

PhotoStage and PhotoLite update available now

Version 1.1.2 of PhotoStage and PhotoLite is available now via automatic updates for current owners. To obtain these free updates, please go to the Options menu and click Update. Check your User’s Manual (here or here) for detailed information.

An improved version of PhotoStand is also included with these products.

The major new features and changes in the new version are:

  • TRU textures are no longer included with PhotoStage; 42 great textures from other providers are being used now (36 before).
  • Backdrop texture tiling and editable glow for PhotoStage. You will need the latest Windlight-enabled Second Life viewer to enjoy backdrop glow.
  • Create commands are not necessary now before editing a light, effects generator or gaze point.
  • The interaction radius of lights, effects generator and gaze points has been extended to 50 metres (it used to be 10 or 20).
  • 43 modelling poses are pre-loaded on PhotoStand, including 7 exclusive poses by Kali Meads.

Also, please remember that a gift card for 6 Animah poses is included with this new release.

This update will be made available at the Ananke Media Systems demo site in Lady Vale (112, 225, 301) and the web stores OnRez and SLExchange in the next few hours.

Enjoy!
