Updates Released

Important updates to PhotoLite, PhotoStage and PhotoSpin have been released.

Version 1.2.2 of PhotoLite and PhotoStage implements the following changes:

  1. Revises internal channel protocols for PhotoLite, PhotoStage and PhotoSpin so that each product now communicates via separate internal channels. This change allows you to rez PhotoLite, PhotoStage or PhotoSpin within close proximity of each other without causing conflicts between products when controlling lights, effects, gazers or backdrops. (Formerly, you would have had to set each product to different channels to avoid conflicts. This is no longer required. However, if rezzing multiple instances of the same product, you will still need to set each instance to it’s own channel, as usual. See Settings in the User’s Manuals for details.)
  2. Changes the term “gaze point” to “gazer” on all relevant components (menus, HUD, gazers) for PhotoLite and PhotoStage.
  3. Resets the default rez points for lights, effects and gazers, so that each type now rezzes at a different vertical position.
  4. Refreshes the appearance of the HUD with new panel backgrounds and top logo.

Version 1.2.1 of PhotoSpin implements the following changes:

  1. Revises internal channel protocols (see above).
  2. Improves update functionality.

To update your product, please click on the Control Box or Sphere to open the Main Menu, select Options, and then click Update. The new version for your product should arrive within a few moments. If you have any questions, please contact Serenity Mercier inworld via IM or notecard, or by email

New Look, New Horizons

Welcome to the new look for the AMS website.

As announced in her recent post, Anna Tretiak has decided to leave AMS in order to pursue other RL interests. Her departure is amicable, yet necessary, and I’m sure all of you who know her in Second Life will join with me in wishing her the very best in her future endeavours.

While Anna’s involvement in the company will be missed, it would be wrong to think AMS is now under new management. Anna and I created our business together and I have been actively engaged in its operations from the very beginning. Please be assured that AMS will continue to provide high quality products and excellent customer service.

I hope you will like the fresh look of the new design scheme. All of the content from the old website is still here, and I will be continuing to update with new notices and information on a regular basis.
