I am using Medhue’s video for my index. He has one of the new 21:9 ratio screens. So, you’ll likely see a big letterbox display like I see on my 16:9 screen. Medhue streams the meeting live. The resulting video gets saved as 720p video, which is fuzzy if you take it full screen.
00:00 – Medhue setting up and getting the stream going.
03:30 – Vir Linden says they are submitting a project viewer to QA soon. Provided they do not find something horribly wrong, we will soon have a project viewer. I think there is a good possibility we will see a viewer in October… if things go well.
04:00 – Vir is working on transform matrices for attached animesh. He feels he has it to the place users can start helping with the testing. So, a project viewer will soon release.
Transform matrices are about how the animesh’s vertices get moved as the avatar moves and the animesh animates. Continue reading →
This was the first meeting in 3 weeks, Vir Linden, the meeting facilitator, has been on vacation. Next week there is no CC UG meeting because of the monthly Linden Staff meeting conflicts. So, savor this one.
Medhue streams the meeting live on YouTube. (With his new 21:9 ratio monitor.) The video remains on YouTube so, you can watch it at your convenience later or live as it happens. I usually record the meetings also, but this one I won’t post as I don’t have the time to process it and I see no point in having two raw footage videos. Plus, too few watch it anyway. About 3 times or more people catch Medhue’s video. So, I’ll probably skip publishing future processed versions.
I provide an index to the videos because I often want to refer back to something in the video. Text search works thus my indexes. AFAIK, there is no searchable way to find information in video format.
01:00 – Vir Linden is talking about the Animesh Project Viewer. This week three LSL commands are now appearing in the SL Wiki, being new.
Well, I did something wrong. The video did not record. I got an hour of audio and a single screen capture for the entire hour. Useless. It looked to be working when I started. But…
So, I’ll write an index for Medhue’s Live Stream.
Medhue doesn’t post process the video so there are spikes and drop outs in Audio. His microphone is messing up too. That was just audible in his stream. I didn’t hear the static in-world. But, it’s tolerable. Just keep your finger close to the volume control.
This week’s meeting was informative and we have some NEW news.
00:00-05:55 – You’ll see Medhue setting up the Live Stream and posting in groups that the meeting is starting. At one point, there were 41 people in the meeting and another 21 on the live stream. That is a big meeting for a User Group. We usually only see that many at a meeting when the pitchforks and protest signs come out.
06:00 – Meeting starts. Alexa Linden tells us that she has distributed instructions for how to build the Animesh Project Viewer. They are devising and writing up plans for testing Animesh. This viewer is changing to fast to release a version to the community. Plus, there are a couple of features Vir wants in before it goes to testers. Continue reading →
