How does your avatar look today ?

   It's not that 'we' don't know how to make reflections, it's an issue of how things are rendered in SL. Back in the early 2000's, many computer games had reflective mirrors in them. The issue is that SL is rendered from what is in front of your camera view. If you look into a mirror, you're looking into a space which is not rendered. In a game where assets and textures are pre-loaded and cached from area to area (i.e. games with 'cells' separated by loading screens), this works pretty well - in a world where you couldn't possibly cache all assets and textures, and instead render based on what the client is looking at, this becomes a lot more difficult.

   When I've done it (I can't say 'usually' as I've done like 3 photos using the technique), I've just free-handed it. I don't know how many times I've posted this picture in this thread (I should make a new one!) but this was done using that setup, with a one-way transparent wall and eyeballing the mirrored shot.

   Theoretically (I think) you could also make two prims to represent the cameras and position them using the grid to match them ... Again, though, I'm script blind: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/LlSetCameraParams

 

That's a very interesting concept! :)

All of me (Almost)

Me and two of my alts.  Left to right, Jo Bergan, Rhonda Huntress and Maybie Nightfire.
This was dropped in place in a hurry.  I may revisit the idea later with a nice setting and add in my male alt somewhere.

I was tempted to say "It's all smoke and mirrors", which it kind of is, but not involving either mirrors or smoke :D

It is just a "window" in a wall with everything that would be visible in the mirror duplicated on the other side of the wall...

I'll edit this with pic to better illustrate in a sec...

Thank you! Actually, I never think of my main, Scylla, as particularly "elegant." But Laskya is probably capable.

 

Oops, missed this one. 😳 Actually, I think your Scylla main definitely looks elegant too (leaning against that desk and all). But maybe 'refined' was a better term. And, of course, simply attractive. Really an excellent example of style and beauty. I bet it took you days to tweak it. :) Anyway, I really loved that shot, no ifs and butts. 🥰 (pun intended).

Yeah, I think not. One is more than enough to handle, and Laskya more so than most. And one thing I definitely don't need to double is double or triple my shopping!

Mind you, I do have one alt in mothballs -- Richard Parkes, Gorean Master and Manly Man about Town. It would be amusing one day to resuscitate him . . .

 

Get the electrodes out and resuscitate. We need to see Richard.

Maybe you could go by and do like a Snow White kiss thing...  ❤️ an enviro green resuscitation thing... save energy...  just an idea.

If you do... remember. You have to share. 😈

Wearing a male avi, LOL, that would feel a mite.. different. :) I remember visiting a sim once, where many women were trying on male avi's, for lolz. It was hilarious, actually, an entire group of 'males' belching an burping, scratching their... you know, pretending to be men. 😛 Although I wouldn't mind seeing Scylla male avi. We might be in for a treat!

He wasn't . . . pretty.

The absolute champ here for slovenly pics (with a sort of East Enders twist) used to be Carole Franizzi. I doff my hair scarf to her, wherever she is now.

In Richard's case, a tarsk -- he was a Gorean. And Manly.

Very Manly.

Didn't even know what a tarsk was. :) Had to look it up. A tarsk, who would have figured, tsk. 😜

Re-do of the earlier pic, this time including Joseph.

It's not as laggy as you would think with 4 viewers running at once but my GPU fan was screaming at me :D

 

This is my alt squad.  All mesh.  I may have a problem ....

Really loving that backdrop too, tbh. You really have knack for these compositions.

As for wanting a smoke, hhhm, not sure what's in your cigarette exactly, but the smoke appears to going down, LOL. That spells trouble. 😃 So, maybe I'll politely pass, this time. *g*

I'm really loving that scene! ❤️ With you in it, of course, LOL, but everything else fits so well too. Your typical impressionist painter would have been proud of such a lovely tableau. :)

Posing with my newlymade hoodie (well, technically just textured) in the"G"-rated version. The correctly branded version contains a word that might not pass moderation :P so the picture of the "real" thing went on Flickr :D

Jo is hot and edgy. Maybie is adorable. You are, of course, you -- lovely as always.

And Joseph . . . hmmm. You're sure he's an alt of yours? No chance you might be mistaken about that . . . ?
