i wish i may...

i wonder how long the Fashion House has been around? because this is the first time i've heard of it... everything there is 50L! and i picked up quite a few things including this sweater and hair.

i hear people talk about Kirstens viewer, they say it's the best using shadows and it also has a built in Depth of Field option... i don't like the idea of having to use a different viewer just to take photos. i wish viewer 2 had DOF. anyways, i was playing around with it a little bit yesterday and i had the same issues everyone else seems to have. i had to relog for my avatar to rez and i had to reattach my hair because parts of it seemed to be missing. i might fiddle with it some more just to take some artistic photos but as far as my blog posts... i am going to live with the annoying lines through my images with viewer 2 for now.

one more thing... if you are reading this and are using a face or body light, PLEASE consider trying this windlight tutorial. i used to use a body light and people always said how annoying they were and how they were blinded by them, and i thought they were just exaggerating because it wasn't that bad. but that's because i wasn't using atmospheric shaders. now that i do use them, i totally understand what they meant! my whole face turns white with any local lighting... i wish there was an option to shut it off in viewer 2. but there's not. so i'll just add it to my wish list and try to enforce windlight!

  1. You can shut off local lighting in Viewer 2 like this:
    1. Select Advanced menu > Debug Settings.
    2. In the DEBUG SETTINGS window, enter "RenderShaderLightingMaxLevel" and enter a value of "1".
    3. You probably won't see any changes yet. That's okay - in PREFERENCES window's Graphics tab, click the Advanced button, then click Atmospheric shaders twice (clicking some other settings also works).

  2. thanks for sharing! that's awesome :)
