Here is a short tutorial on mesh imports in Second Life (for Maya users) by Sand Castle Studios’ own, Reed Steamroller.
Today Linden Lab gave Second Life users an update on mesh support and lifted the NDA for current beta testers. I can now tell you that for about the last year, we here at Sand Castle Studios have been deeply involved in working with the Lindens to bring mesh support to Second Life.
The 6th annual Second Life Community Convention (SLCC) took place in Boston this past weekend. It was an exciting weekend packed full of Linden Lab announcements as well as a plethora of resident-led discussions and presentations.
A virtual Bill Gates recently made an appearance in a machinima (video) filmed within the virtual worlds of Second Life to set the record straight about PCs Vs. Macs.
At this years Second Life Community Convention, Linden Lab Chief Product Officer Tom Hale, aka T. Linden, showed video of a polygon mesh object responding to a dynamic lighting system much more advanced then the current lighting and shadows that are available in several Beta viewers.
