MachinimaCam sales have been a huge success. Customers have been generous of their time suggesting new features, reporting bugs, and generally being good to deal with. I sold enough MachinimaCam HUDs to finance the future developments, so I decided it was time to make a move for the community. Since MachinimaCam 0.12 is on the way to be shipped and much of the hardest part of developing the MCAPI framework is done, I want to give an early season gift to all of those who supported the development of this device.
Here is the deal:
- From now on regular MachinimaCam price drops from 4000L$/4500L$ to 2000L. This is a permanent change and will be reflected inworld as well as OnRez and SLX.
- Current MachinimaCam owners (before 18/12/2007 3:00PM LST) that bought it through SLX, OnRez, or in one of my stores gets 1 free MachinimaCam giveaway to ANY other avatar inworld. To request your extra giveaway, please send me a notecard entitled “MachinimaCam Giveaway” and write the following information: Your complete avatar name, where did you buy the device (SLX,OnRez,inworld), and the complete name of the avatar that will recieve the giveaway camera.
- I am offering a FREE MachinimaCam to any educational organization that produce tutorial videos or do experimental machinima videos. To request a free unit, please send me a notecard entitled “MachinimaCam Educational” stating: Organisation name, organisation mission, website URL,email, and complete name of the avatar that should recieve the free unit.
- Furthermore, I am giving away 5 FREE MachinimaCam devices to 5 already established machinima artists. Send me a notecard entitled “MachinimaCamArtist” and stating: Your complete avatar name, a list of your previous works, and a short description of your work. I will select the 5 best entries on Friday, 21st and send out the free boxed cameras to the winners.
I would ♥♥♥ to thanks the hundreds of customers that supported the development efforts on this device, and to tell them those efforts have not been vain. The new system will allow dozens of new effects to be added to the device, and extensions way beyond what was previously intended. Watch this blog for more news on the next release.
