Let me start by saying this is not a fashion post. It's about what happens "behind the scenes" when taking the pictures we love so much. A simple method is to have a posestand with animations inside.
But what happens if you can't rezz it? Or if you want to photograph a friend? Most animations are sold no transfer. Then you can use the ANI-mate HUD made by Vextra Messing.
What is so great about it? Well for starters, it organizes the animations you already have and the interface is much more user-friendly: you get to display 10 animations at a time. Once you click a certain animation, you can animate yourself.
What's even better is that you can actually animate other avatars (up to 12) for a photo. So remember that nice sim where you wanted to take a nice photo of your friend but couldn't because you didn't have rezz permission? Well, the HUD solves that problem for you! You don't NEED to rezz a thing. Unless of course, you really want to.
Another thing, particularly useful to fashion pics is the possibility of saving the camera position.
And guess what? You don't have to be a genius to use it. What you get: a HUD full with over 100 animations, a poseball and a copiable (empty) HUD. You rezz the empty HUD on the ground, drag and drop your animations inside, get back the HUD and use the little buttons to animate yourself or others. You can use it for dances too!
Thank you Vextra for the HUD! I haven't detached it since I got it.
