The main channel did not get an update. Bummer. I was hoping the increased population change would roll across the grid.
I looked to see if Fantasy Faire has the RC version with the feature running. Nope. I had a lot of trouble crossing regions so, I thought the new version might be the problem..
The County Girl
The RC channels Blue Steel and Magnum are being updated with a new version of the increased population package: 17.04.13.325429. Le Tigre is getting a package with internal tool changes: 17.04.21.325687. Continue reading →
Strawberry Singh has posted a nice tutorial on YouTube and her blog. It runs 26 minutes. The video is simple, complete, and well done. I’ll link you to her current challenge where there is a link to the video. The challenge is a bit of fun and incentive to learn how to stream Second Life™.
Strawberry’s Video Challenge
I did find that my OBS (18.0.1 Windows 64-bit) is a bit different than Strawberry’s (18.0.1 64-bit Mac?).
If you haven’t seen the term ‘vlogging’ it is blogging using video. Medhue Simoni is doing an almost daily (8 or ( AM SLT) video tutorial on Second Life modeling and animation. I suppose we could call the tutorials his vlog. See: Medhue channel. The channel has 4,000+ subscribers.
Strawberry’s Vlogging Challenge is here. You can compare her videos and Medhue’s. Strawberry gives away that she has notes and a script for her video in the OBS tutorial as she flips from primary to her secondary screen with the script. Continue reading →
I came across this in my daily reading. KirstenLee Cinquetti started posting in the KirstenLee blog. There are two new posts apparently the first since 2015. Whatever, there is this interesting software for those DJ’ing in Second Life™.
Long ago (2013 and before) KirstenLee Cinquetti made the KirstenLee Viewer. The S19 version was about the last in the series. Until the updates stopped KirstenLee’s Viewer was the photographer’s viewer of choice. It was my daily-use viewer.
KirstenLee Viewer April 2017
I suppose the Black Dragon Viewer could be said to have taken over a similar position in the community. Firestorm Viewer is now my choice for photography.
However, back in 2013 there was a bit of a controversy in June 2013: S19 Viewer Controversy. There were also some health issues in KirstenLee’s family before the controversy that I thought were the primary reason for discontinuing the viewer updates.
KirstenLee is again compiling a viewer. See: KV SPRING CLEAN… You’ll find the viewer in SourceForge under Kirstens Viewers. I am not endorsing the viewer nor have I used it. But, I do find it interesting that it still lives.
Also, this viewer had an Anaglyph 3D feature (the middle image in the image), which would be a good reason to try it out.
Anaglyph 3D: The 3D that uses Red-Blue glasses to see 3D. A problem with anaglyphic viewing is distorted color.
I have my Samsung VR Gear and an S8 in process… woohoo!
The new release of Adobe’s various products change the way we work. I think it is a great improvement. I am still learning how to change my work flow. This video gives you an idea of the important changes.
I can make all the video in Premiere now, including opening titles where I usually use a still processed in Photoshop. I do have to save a still shot of the opening title to use on YouTube. YouTube never allows me to choose the frame I want to use. Their three choices always suck.
Fantasy Faire (FF) is always awesome and it certainly is this year. I enjoy trekking through the regions. But, that is a challenge this year. Trying to walk from region to region is almost always failing, stripping off scripts, reducing ACI, and checking the population in my destination region are all failing.
Fantasy Faire 2017 – Morbus
I can walk across the region boundary but, then I am on one of those no-control-rubberbanding-walks. Before I ever recover the system logs me off.
My solution has been to use the world map to teleport into each region when I reach the boundary. So, far it seems to work way better. I can now see why so many are using the Fairelands Portals.
I am also finding the scripted things in many regions seem to not be working. I’ll hope for a Tuesday restart and revisit.
If you are using Adobe’s Premiere, you find that making titles and placing text in you video has changed, drastically. The replacement for Titles is NOT intuitive. It is better but, you need a hint or two to get started.
