STORE IN IMVU - FAQ
We generally do not take custom dance requests. However we are happy to take suggestions for future animations.
Please feel free to drop us a line in IMVU or via this website with your ideas!
We currently only provide our animations as dance actions and dance spots. This is mainly due to the time involved and the range of projects I am juggling. We have made a special effort though to make all our content derivable in IMVU so other third parties can turn them into these items if they wish. I'd actually encourage anyone who his willing to do this to do so and put them for sale as I get asked this quite a lot but simply do not have the time myself to do it.
People are able and welcome to sell our content as official derived content. This is great because the derivation system in IMVU still means royaltys for the creator. Sometimes however unscrupulous and greedy people rip the animations out of IMVU somehow and reupload theselves so that they can undercut the original creator and take all profits. This is really really bad not just for the creator but for the IMVU community as a whole. Ultimately it leads the content creators giving up and not producing content and sometimes leaving altogether. It also devalues the market. Creators put a lot of time, effort and money into making content. Mocap animations are especially expensive to produce.
You can check whether an item is derived by looking at its derivision tree. If it shows me as the creator at some point back then it is fine. If the animation is the same as one of ours though and I am nowhere to be seen in the derivision tree, then please let me know so I can file a DMCA report and take further action if necessary. Thanks.
Our animations are made using motion capture technology to record real life performers. We record there motions and convert them for use on IMVU. This creates very smooth and realistic motion. Our real life motion capture studio website is www.awesomedog.com
Yes I ( Abramelin Wolfe ) started in Second Life back in 2004.
Whilst that is still the main home of Abranimations. I do now have various stores in other online games and platforms including IMVU.
