  1. You are using a 40-second lead-in. Think more like 4-seconds. Popular Youtube videos are maybe 4-5 minutes long total. Try to invorporate some new music. Look at Incompetech.com Enjoyed!
  2. All this technology, but when will we have skydiving sex? When?
  3. Wow looks pretty scary! Don't fall off the stand!
  4. I have read that if you txt in range, the avatar will look at you. Thats not much control.
  5. Yes, second that. Get the FREE layer. There are too many settings to try it yourself at first.
  6. I have been getting crashes with a Win-7 64 bit, on a brand new computer. CPU: Intel® Core i7 CPU 960 @ 3.20GHz (3200.01 MHz) Memory: 18423 MB OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 64-bit Service Pack 1 (Build 7601) Graphics Card Vendor: ATI Technologies Inc. Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series I've been watching Task Manager more carefully, and Firestorm launches at a little over 400,000 k memory, and typicaly climbs to over 1,000,000 K in memory. Thats when it will usually crash. Keeping graphics at the mid settings seems to help. Also a clean boot of the pc helps. It will crash more often if I have it at the higher graphics settings, and have re-started the viewer multiple times without a reboot.
  7. I want to load some animations to be triggered by a hotkey. So the cool way to do this is using the Gesture editor, and calling the animation. Within the Editor, you can have the animation 'play' until finished, or you can have it Stop after xx seconds. But what if I want to hold the animation, and end it on a keyboard command? LIke a military salute. I am thinking I have to go back to using the AO trick, and adding the animations to "ground sit" and "crouch" or such. I don't believe there is a way to add a 'hot key' to an ao set. <<woop update 1: "Stop Avatar Animation" will stop the gesture.. Now if I can make a shortcut for that, would be nice >>
  8. Oh if you are going to buy something, look at the Space Navigator (standard version) by 3DConnexion. Installs easy, works right out of the box. I have not had to change any settings. SL 'sees" the navigator and has default settings for it. Its in addition to the regular mouse. Space Navigator runs the camera, your arrow keys control movement, and your mouse for selecting things. Flying the cam is wild this way. I set draw distance to max and just cam all over a sim. No need to walk! Great for perving haha http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/SpaceNavigator http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Joystick_flycam
  9. Well I am getting multiple crashes a day using the Phoenix viewer, on a quad-core big-memory PC. I am watching Windows Task Manager, and memory use is climbing past 950,000K before it crashes.
  10. Started getting IM spam after touching a rental kiosk. I contacted the owner but he wouldn't be bothered turning it off. Would be nice to see a case come out through SL, reminding them, and all that as a US California company, they would be bound by US law on the issue. Including disclosure of rl names and contact information. One charge, covered by the papers, could do a lot of good.
  11. Thanks for the tips, I loaded Firestorm, and its pretty good. Kind of a best of V2 and V1 haha. And consider that the coolness of using an integrated AO is I can switch them quickly. So a guy like me could, and does purchase several to try and use. The best stands I combine into a Best-Of AO set.
  12. Wow that is some edgy lighting and transitions. I should try that. You were perving on people! haha
  13. 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.
  14. Hello, this is my first machinima post. Recorded at Hope at Second Life. (Amancio II) http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Silver%20Springs/215/187/29 Music: "Eastminster" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons 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.
  15. Thanks for the tips. I will look into it. If Firestorm is on the 2.x platform, I may move over there.
  16. I started using the SL viewer finally, to benefit from the "physics" and the good handling of Outfits. I got so used to integrated animation overriders AO (in Emerald and Imprudence) its only after a week I realize there is no integrated AO with the sl viiewer.. is there? Crud. So I will have to drag my animation sets and and cards BACK out of inventory and into one of those old-fashioned HUDS.. rats pita
  17. 1badmofo Resident - profile is funny to. So what is it with people with numbers in their names (like Kitty63 Resident). Does LL not give them the opportunity to back up and try another name? Best advise I would give them is, stop while you are new. Get a new name!
  18. What, you can't return to owner? If you don't have the rights to do that, I would look for a place where you have proper control. How long does it take to move? Tell the landlord to fix it or you are gone. This is why we don't "buy" Linden Land, right?
  19. Oh that did just the trick, thank you so much. I can hug and kiss again! haha.
  20. I have a nice HUD with animations. Have been using it more than a year. With Emerald, Imprudence, SL 2.x. No problems. I rez it on the ground. I can see it. I added some animations, as I have done before. I pick it up. No prob. When I wear it, its in Upper R corner. Then I get the idea to attach it somewhere else. So in Imprudence I detach it, and from inventory I use "Attach to HUD - Top". And now I can't see it. I tried on Center, and other places. Can't see it. I try view transparent. Don't see it. But it is being worn. Its in Bold on the Inventory list, Its on the Worn Items List. I detach it, its back in inventory (so it didn't fly off somewhere). I can rez it on the ground. I tried reset scripts in selection. Did not work. Same problem in SL 2.6 viewer. Other HUDs are visible fine Appreciate any ideas.
