This spell creates a hologram within the range of the spell. The hologram can be as crude or as detailed as you want. Creating the hologram in full detail takes mere seconds, even if it would take some time to recall these details from memory. For example, if you recreate a huge mansion you have visited many times, it would be within the limits of this spell to recreate all the rooms in perfect proportions, with all furniture in the correct position. Similarly, you could create a model of your friend in perfect detail.
The only limitation is that you cannot create details you don't know about. You can create details the way you imagine them, as well as creating details as explained by another person, but this is all subject to your own interpretations. You may use this spell to get an overview of all details of something you know, and as a tool to establish good guesses at details you don't know (such as the exact dimensions of a room you have only seen briefly).
You may also make the hologram animated in rudimentary ways, such creating an animated waterfall or two armies charging against each other, or rotate the whole hologram slowly.
As a standard action, you may change the hologram. You may also cause the hologram to vanish completely and recreate it later at another place as long as the spell is active.
Although the hologram can contain color, it has an ethereal shimmer and is transparent. This makes it clear that it is not real. It is possible to hide behind an illusion, but anyone who might see you get a +5 bonus on their opposed Spot check, and +20 if they are actually looking for you.
