Hey! First time posting here, hoping someone could either tell me what I'm doing wrong or confirm whether or not this is a bug. Whenever I take a snapshot, the resulting image is never identical to what the second life viewer is showing; particularly with shadows, ambient occlusion and DoF, in short the effects from DoF and ambient occlusion that I'm seeing in the viewer are not present in the snapshot image or are greatly reduced. I have to really over apply DoF to see an effect on my snapshot, and no matter how I fiddle with ambient occlusion, its effects on shadows isn't evident on the snapshot image. Shadows will look smooth and accurate on my viewer, but a snapshot will produce random shadow artifacts and jagged edges as though ambient occlusion wasn't turned on. I've tested this on Alchemy's project viewer, LL's viewer and Firestorm (example below is from Firestorm. I would try Black Dragon as well but have yet to set up Parallels for it.). Every time I have graphics on Ultra, save for draw distance which I minimize. Quality of shadows is maxed when I can depending on the viewer, specifically on Firestorm I've tried to max/fiddle with the extra shadow and ambient occlusion settings to no avail. I will add that I'm on a M1 iMac and am getting decent performance regardless of settings, so I don't believe it's because of hardware but I could be wrong. First image is a Gyazo screen capture to attempt to show what the viewer is displaying, smooth shadows and no weird artifacts. Second image is a copy of my high-res snapshot, shadows are suddenly not smoothed out and appear in random positions, as though ambient occlusion was not turned on.
ciao a tutti. ho creato un post sul forum in inglese, ho avuto molte risposte però purtroppo nessuna delle soluzioni proposte che ho messo in pratica ha funzionato. spero che qualche italiano possa darmi una mano col problema che ho ovvero: non mi funziona più il bottone pay, paga in italiano, che è diverso dal bottone buy, acquista che invece funziona. quindi non posso comprare nulla inworld ma solo su MP e è un po' frustrante. è successo all'improvviso e nonostante abbia fatto tutti i controlli e abbia installato nuovamente SL non sono riuscita a risolvere questo bug. uso un mac molto vecchio, del 2008. questo è il link del post in inglese. grazie in anticipo a chiunque, sperando che ci sia, mi vorrà aiutare 😊
I can't seem to find updated information regarding whether it is a good idea to use a macbook for sl purposes? I really dislike using any microsoft laptops and since it is obvious my current one is fried, I would rather update back to a mac or apple product. Will LL be supporting them going forward? I prefer using fs viewer but any information will be appreciated. Thanks
