Hello, this is my first machinima post. Recorded at Hope at Second Life. (Amancio II)

But what I really want to show off my my new pc rig used to record this:

Dell Studio XPS

CPU: Intel Core i7 CPU         960  @ 3.20GHz (3200 MHz)
Memory: 18423 MB
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 64-bit
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series

24" flat screen monitor, and 2nd 21" monitor, screen capture with Camtasia
I am capturing at 1280 x 720 for YouTube.The monitor is much higher rez than that. Perhaps I should reduce screen size for these.

Using Space Navigator for the 1st time
Edited with Vegas Pro 9

I've got about everything poss turned on in graphics - shadows etc.

The long pole in the tent clearly is my Internet connection, which is DSL at 3.9-5.5 Mbps
So maybe to help with low frame rates is slow down the camera movement, and if need be speed it back up in editing. But that won't help with things that are moving in world.

A second monitor gives me a place to put the Camtasia menu. But the 24" monitor is so hi res, I could make the viewer window smaller and fit the Camtasia menu under it.

As mentioned in the SL wiki, a 2nd monitor is going to use more of the graphics card. So if I needed to maximize resources, I should disable it for recording.

OTOH, if course its nice to have my email and stuff open in one monitor while I mess in SL in full screen on the other monitor.
