Question

  • 0

I had exactly the same experience several months ago and had forgotten about it until I saw your question. I still do not know what caused it, and would love to hear a technical explanation from someone with more experience in SL photography.  Unfortunately, I also not not know what cleared it up.  I have just tried taking a series of test pics in PNG, JPG, and BMP formats, enabling and disabling the usual suspects in Preferences >> Graphics  (VBO, HTTP Textures, anti-aliasing, anisotropic filtering) and I can't reproduce the waterless, skyless error again.  All I can suggest to you is that some of your user settings files may have been borked.  You can try deleting some or all of them and forcing your viewer to rebuild them when you relog next time.  See >>> http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/User_settings .  You might also try simply clearing your cache manually to see if that helps.
