Second Life gets a 360 Camera

Yesterday I published my update on the servers and viewers. Monday Inara published hers. Today the Lab announces a new Project Viewer: Second Life Project 360 Snapshot Viewer version The release notes are here. Download.

I’ve written about this feature coming. Now it is here, almost.

The release notes describe the project as:

The existing viewer snapshot system (control-shift-s) is being extended to add a mode where you can take a picture that encompasses all directions at once.

Placed in a suitable web site with some HTML and JavaScript, the image can then be scrolled to look around as though you had a window into Second Life at the moment the picture was taken. Please visit our wiki for details

This is also integrated with a number of other Snapshot improvements contributed by the author of the Black Dragon viewer.

The SL Blog announcement is here: A New Perspective on Second Life.
