David Bowie - Absolute Beginners - Second Life Story


Recommended Posts

That was great. You have amazing filming skills and techniques! I have some second life machinima tech questions if you don't mind. That first scene, the camera was stationary and the avatar is walking towards it....did you use two computers and two avatars to film that or some other method? Then that goes right into a side camera shot that follows the avatar....how was that achieved? I use the second life viewer and side tracking does not work. The only thing I can think of is to go into the debug menu and change some camera defaults there? What would I change to get a side follow cam? I'm just guessing maybe there is a firestorm setting for follow side angle?

Thank you so much Soda! oh guess u need Firestorm to do that , not sure if the official viewer have the same options, go to preferences "Mover y Ver" (sorry my viewer is in spanish) in english must be Move and See?, and there u need to uncheck "Reset camera position when moving avatar". After that lock the camera on ur avatar with Alt and choose the angle u want, the camera will follow u in that position.
