This isn’t a Second Life specific article, but SL is all about getting our world rendered and concepts are similar in all rendered worlds. Arton Rotaru found the blog page and posted a link in the SL Forum. So, if your are curious and wonder how hard can it be to render a world? Then this is something for you.
Also, if you are a creative type and hopping to optimize your builds to reduce lag, there are concepts you will likely find interesting.
See: Render Hell 1.0 – For discussion see the SL Forum: A lovely explanation of how a Render Pipeline works.
