MetaHarper Show Tools

MetaHarper Show Tools is a complete, collaborative system for managing SL performances.  If you need to rez and de-rez props safely and accurately, move objects and avatars smoothly, script camera zooms and pans, choreograph animations and special effects with real time precision, then you have come to the right place.

I created this set of tools to promote the performing arts and creative exhibitions within SL and attempt to enable truly collaborative work, where a group of cooperating individuals can work on the same objects at the same time. Normally in-world creation tools are difficult to share with people other than the owner, but this tool suite attempts to break these barriers.

These tools have been used for years to run weekly multimedia dance shows in many different regions, annual acclaimed performances such as “Idle Rogue Productions: Le Cirque De Nuit” and always-on interactive stage galleries as well as imaginative art exhibits at the Linden Endowment for the Arts regions.

Within SL you can pick up a copy of the MetaHarper Show Tools in the SL marketplace, at the MetaHarpery building in historic Miramare, or in the backstage dressing rooms of participating venues.

Happy Showmaking!
