Derive a Product in IMVU Studio

Derive a New Product

Starting a New Project in IMVU Studio will allow you to derive from an existing product. To do this, click on the Hamburger icon on the upper left and hover your mouse on File. Click New. You can also click the + icon on the upper left, or the Create button on the upper-right.

A new window will appear, showing you the full catalog of products you can derive from.

Here, you can search the product you wish to use as your base. You can search for the product name in the Search Bar.  




You can also type in a product ID in the Product ID field.
Product ID (PID)

Product Identification Number. It is assigned when a product is submitted to the catalog.

For future reference, Product IDs can be found at the bottom of product pages if you access from the IMVU Classic Website and it is also the number at the end of a product page’s URL if you access from the IMVU Classic Website or the IMVU Next.

  • From IMVU Classic Website

  • From IMVU Next

Once you have chosen the product from which you will derive, the image on the right will update with the product details.

The Search tool only shows derivable products. If the product you wanted does not appear, it’s likely because the product was set as Not Derivable by its Creator.

When a product is set as derivable, other creators can derive new products from it and set their own products as derivable. You can choose whether your product is derivable during the uploading process to the Shop.
To learn more about How to Upload a Product to the Shop, please click here.

The derivation history of the product is displayed on the right. You can select a product that is earlier in the derivation chain. Note that the earlier in the derivation chain the product is, the lower the derivation cost.

If this is the product you want to derive from, click on Derive. This will open the Editor in a tab inside IMVU Studio.
