The complete publishing system. Create beautiful books (with pages that turn) of your pictures for your own use, or to “publish” and give away or sell. Easy to use with dozens of features to help you create not just a book, but a work of art.
If you’ve a collection of images or pictures you want to beautifully present, hippoBOOK offers you an easy and attractive solution — turn them into a book which you can display, or give away, within Second Life. Books make ideal gifts, wonderful promotional items, or simply a great medium and income-making opportunity for the budding artist or photographer. They’re as popular in Second Life as the “real” world and are so much more visually appealing than simply sticking your picture on to a prim.
Among the dozens of features crammed into the hippoBOOK package are …
Quickly create beautiful books of your textures, complete with a real turning page effect. Just rez a book, pop in your textures, and you’re done!
“Publish” books that you can give away or sell to other people. Published books contain no textures themselves, but store textures encoded in script memory.
Rapidly customize a book’s appearance — from the covers to the spine — by simply popping textures into the main book. No fiddling around texturing tiny prims!
Rez a book inworld for all to see, or wear it as a HUD for private reading.
Decide who can use your book — including anybody, named friends, or a group.
Customize a wide range of options using menus and a configuration notecard.
Have your book give out inventory to people when touched.
Choose to have a book automatically flip through pages itself: great for instore displays.
If you’d like to check out hippoBOOK before buying, there’s a free demo available by simply touching a hippoBOOK vendor. It’s fully functional, with just two restrictions: books are limited to four pages and you don’t get access to “Publish” mode and transferable books. But other than that, the demo will let you try everything.
