(*chanimations “DivingDeep”

“Follow the Rainbow – you may be surprised where it leads…”

To avoid confusion right from the start: the pose set does not include any mermaid costumes – there are so many gorgeous ones existing on the grid so we focused 100% on putting your tail into the right position rather than drawing scales – well… kinda. ;D

The idea of this pose set is very simple… the interaction of a mermaid with a school of fish – and a pretty one, at that! Swimming, diving, greeting – it has a few angles this meeting could go, so see what you can make out of it :) The prop itself works for one mermaid, but of course you may rezz additional posestands to fit as many as you like into your picture.

-DivingDeep- contains photography props and poses with the following properties:

(no mod/no transfer):

• (*fish_greeting,
• (*fish_cherish,
• (*fish_cherish_lookback,

• (*fish_hold,
• (*fish_hold (mirror),
• (*fish_reach,
• (*fish_swimDown,

All POSES are static and come with ‘copy’ rights so you can put them into your posestands or make own poseball arrangements with the set.

DETAILS ABOUT THE SET (The things to know)

We have included 2 different versions of the rainbow fish. The difference between these two groups? One comes with normal “dark” fins, the other is set to “full bright” – FB has it’s place in some situations, and kills everything in others. With both options, you can rezz the one that suits your needs best :)


There is one pose menu in the prop, you’ll find it in the root prim. Just sit on the fish, and any click on the prop will open the pose selection menu.


There is optional large or small particle bubbles of course, too. The menu can be accessed when clicking the WHISKERS of the koi. It also allows, to set permissions to turn particles on/off.

The ability to use the poses and sit options are NOT affected by this menu.


All textures for this set are custom made by Chandra Meehan for (*chanimations and deviousMind – if you find them used by anybody else not connected to us, please help protect original content and immediately inform us! Thank you in advance!

GENERAL INFORMATION (which you might have already)


Of course there’s no pose-balls – you sit directly on the rezzed prims!

The prop provides you with a pose adjustment menu to finetune your position – either use included gesture with hot-key [F10] (the gesture is mod, so you can change the key) or speak /1a in open channel for the adjustment menu to open (both will only work while sitting).

‘Postion’ will allow you to move your avartar more forward, backwards, left or right (X and Y axis) and of course up and down (Z axis), if needed ‘Rotation’ menu gives you more options for your adjustment.

The script remembers the avartar custom settings of its 100 most frequent users who adjusted their positions as long as the set stays rezzed.


You’ve never worked with gestures? It’s easy, go into inventory and right click it, then select ‘activate’ in the context menu. Once activated, just press F10 key and the adjustment menu will open up if you sit on any of our (*chanimations props using this feature! Typing /adjustPose in chat will have the same effect, SL chat bar will auto-complete the command after the first few characters typed if it recognizes it being an active gesture. The gesture is mod, so you can change hot-key or command to whatever is easier for you, just double-click on the gesture in inventoy to open it.


To make it easier on photographers who work with models (or if you don’t want to adjust poses through a menu), a multiPosestand (4 PRIMS) is included. This way you can send your models afk and freely move them yourself instead of ‘instructing them’ where to place their avartar. Or you can use the included multiPoseball (1 PRIM).

While the posestand navigates through poses with arrow buttons, the multiPoseball needs to be triggerd by the one sitting on it and toggles the poses by using the pageUp/pageDown keys.

Both respond to /1show and /1hide to turn them invisible.


The prop includes an update script, which will check for free upgrades when it is rezzed – to not loose the information of your adjusted poses through rezzing, you can call for the update manually by typing “/12update” (without quotes) in open chat – or just rez another one from inventory :)

If nothing happens at all, there is likely no update existing yet. We keep you informed through our mainstore and our blog should a product have received an update: http://chanimations.deviousmind.net/about/updated/


If you have problems with sculpties seeming rough edged, please increase your LOD settings to 4.000 – you can do this either through advanced menu or the graphic settings. (This varies depending on which viewer you are using, please find out where to do it with your viewer’s support group.
