It’s been about a year and a half since I tried out CodeBastard Redgraves previous FilterCam HUD. I saw in my Google reader that Mechanized Life now has a new version along with a FilterCam HUD Photo Contest in which you can win up to 15,000 L$ in prized.
FilterCam HUD allows you to put images over top of the sceenery that you are looking at, to add additional effects. There are a wide variety of masks (over 80 of them) that make it appear as if you have done post-production work in an expensive photo editor. Some masks add lighting effects, others make it appear as if you are watching TV on an alien planet. There are weather effects such as snow and even a few masks of blood and gore for scary environments. The scene here used the preset “Shrubbed” in the horror category. I like a few of the Frames such as the iPhone.
Anyone who wins 1st, 2nd, or 3rd prize in the FilterCam Photo Contest will not only win quite a few Linden Dollars, but they’ll also win Avimote PoseMaker Personal Edition worth 2450 L$ at msrp along with some MechanizedLife gear and Tillie’s Posestands. You have until the end of the month to get your entries in. Just post your entries on Flickr and add them to the FilterCam Flickr Group. Be sure to tag them “FILTERCAM CONTEST” or it will not count. You can submit up to three entries, but make sure to read all the rules in the photo contest post on the Mechanized Life website.
