So I discovered by *accident* that the Lindens are working on a (super-secret?) 360 Snapshot project. I never saw it announced! Well-played, Lindens, well-played indeed! Anyway, I thought I'd create this thread to show-off wonderful places I've found using 360-Snapshots (as in 360º Snapshots) because the usual "flat" snapshots just don't do some of these places justice! I'll tell you how (if you want to give it a go) inaminute, but first a coupe, from Lutz! (If you don't see it: click on the picture and drag your mouse): http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Templemore City/127/88/28 SO here's how to do it if you want! Grab the LL "Second Life Project 360 Snapshot Viewer" (Mac, Windows) here: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Alternate_Viewers Position your camera where you want, then choose WORLD->CAPTURE 360 If you like the preview, then click SAVE LOCAL (and give it a good name) Upload directly to FLICKR (if you want to embed it here) or any other 360 Photo hosting website Open the 360 image in Flickr (so you see it as a 360 Image with click-and-drag) - Copy the URL Create a reply in this thread and paste the URL THEN, go back to Flickr, click "SHOW EXIF" and copy the SLURL and paste it into your message too. That's it! A couple things to note: It's an experimental viewer, it's very stable for me (the SL Viewer part is rock-solid), though sometimes the 360 image doesn't capture some prims and mesh objects, so you may have to reposition and experiment a bit, Also, don't edit your 360 images because then you may erase all the meta whatevers that Flickr uses to make it a true 360-image. Even if I am the only one to post here then so be it. It's a shiny new toy from Linden lab and I hope they keep developing it! Though I hope some of you will join me! This is just a post to kick it off, I already have a new place to show you in my next post!
