  1. Hi folks I'm a machinima maker. I have my one av on one computer and another av on another. I am running Firefox on both computers. It very occasionally happens that the av on one machine is speaking but the lips don't move on the viewer for the other av (which is my camera viewer). Everything is set right on both viewers for voice and lip sync. I can log out both avs but on logging back in that doesn't resolve the problem. Can anyone suggest why this would be so? Thanks!

  3. Hi folks I like working with shadows in machinima. I notice, however, that once I move away from the basic 9am-12pm-3pm in "Customize my environment" to one of the other options (like Nam's Optimal Skin for example) I lose shadow, even though I have Advanced Lighting Model and shadows checked in Preferences. I have tried tweaking the various sliders in Phototools> Windlight settings> edit sky preset without any change - although I admit I may be missing some particular one or combination. I use the latest Firefox viewer. My graphics card on one computer is an AMD Radeon HD 7570 and on the other is an NVIDIA Quadro 3000M. Is there a way to get shadows with the other Windlight presets? Thanks! Orion
  4. Thanks for that but unfortunately it did not work - steps 1 and 2 did not work and for step 3 the moment I try to change outfit it crashed. I tried going back to the viewer 1.23 and it allowed me to change outfits as if nothing was wrong. But the moment I tried to open Firestorm again it ruthed me and began randomly attaching items from inventory again - so the same problem still. Back iin 1.23 I was able to get my av back again. I'd really like to be able to go back and keep using Firestorm rather than viewer 1.23. Can anyone help please?
  5. Hi guys I've struck a problem with my avatar. Yesterday when I tried to change outfit not only did it not change but it became randomly taking objects from my inventory (everything from houses to golf clubs) and attaching them to the av. Every time I log back in the same thing happens - I stay a cloud but to others my partly ruthed av is at the centre of objects pulled from my inventory worn as attachments. When I try to change outfits again the viewer crashes. If I try to rebake the viewer crashes. I have tried clearing the cache but this changes nothing. I've been in SL since 2006 and never had this happen before - everything was fine while I was using it yesterday until the last change of outfit when all this came out of left field. I'm using Firestorm - but tried the official viewer without much luck. Could someone point me in the right direction? I'm feeling pretty freaked about it. Thanks for any help!
  6. Hi folks Is there any way of changing the window size in viewer 3 to 800 x 600? I am used to using that for machinima. Thanks!
  7. Just as a follow up to Arbit's advice. You need to experiment to get the shot you want. Be aware that the closer the camera is to your av (X axis) and lower the camera (Z axis) the sharper the angle (ie more sky above the av's head). I got the shot I was after (walking along a beach) with: X 4.000 Y 0 Z -0.975 It can be a nuisance to have to relog all the time but you can get good results (for no extra cost, if that is an issue for you). Thanks again for the tip Arbit.
  8. That's great Arbit - thank you very much
  9. I'd like to film my avatar walking/running with the camera staying the same distance from in front and at an angle level with the chest/face (instead of behind and high).  Is there a way to do this?
