IMVU Studio is our next generation creator platform built from the ground up for both Mac and Windows. It serves as the foundation for new features and optimizations visible on IMVU Desktop and Mobile, allowing Creators to take their products to a whole new level. IMVU Studio includes several new features including normal and specular maps, particles 2.0, new lighting and a fresh new user interface. Studio is in continuous development and we’ll be rolling out new features regularly!

New Features

  • Normal and specular maps
  • Glow and Iridescence effects
  • Particle System 2.0

  • Larger product submission file size
  • Custom Product Image Thumbnails
  • Undo/Redo History
  • Derivation catalog built into Studio
  • Control over submesh/material assignments

Stand Alone App

IMVU Studio is a new stand-alone client. After reviewing your feedback, we concluded that separating Studio and Desktop would result in smaller downloads, allow independent development on each app, and improve the experience for both users and Creators

Backward Compatibility

The underlying structure of how products are created has remained the same in IMVU Studio. About 90% of existing products in our catalog will be derivable into Studio . If you are familiar with Classic Create Mode, you should be able to start creating products in IMVU Studio in no time.

New Features Coming Soon

These will be exposed in future releases

  • Spotlights – Control cone angle, brightness and falloff
  • Shadow Maps – Spotlights will have the ability to cast a shadow
  • Increased Texture Map Sizes – Support 1024 x 1024 texture sizes
