And I’ll be lucky if I get to sit down on anything once I’m there. For the moment, at any rate, let’s pretend I did.
Here you’ll find a few pieces from N4RS’ Harvard set currently featured at LTD’s Event as well as Design Junction’s quirky little bicycle table which is available at On9. I‘ve included both LTD’s and On9’s catalogs at the end of this post for your weekend shopping needies.
I spent some time
earlier this evening last night, fiddling with the Black Dragon viewer again. I mentioned some of my thoughts in the comment section of my last post, to fellow blogging buddy, Ever Afterr.
Here is the raw shot that I’ve also posted to my feed at my.secondlife.com:
Post processing edits included brighten/contrasting and just a smidgen of diffuse glow. Usually I go bonkers with texture overlays and blending modes, but truly, the raw shots I am taking through Black Dragon, have no need of editing.
With that said here are the four viewers I use regularly; the blue text representing my uh, thumbs up you could say, and the red text for ‘why does it hate me so much?!’
Of course, not all machines are created equally, so I can only share what my experiences are with either of these viewers on what I do own:
- Intel Core I7-4700HQ 2.4 GHz Processor
- 8 GB DDR3 RAM
- NVIDIA GTX-860M 2GB (Maxwell) (new architecture, clocks a mite faster than Kepler)
- Max Screen resolution 1920×1080 (but it is a touchscreen and the display sucks ass.. guess they had to save money somewhere for that touch, ahh)
- I get about 40-50 FPS on the days when my teenagers aren’t home
I offer no coherent technical advise or opinion or much of anything because obviously, I ain’t no expert ehem. This is just your average Second Life resident, who likes taking snapshots and using the best tools there are out there to take them.
The last update to both the official viewer and Firestorm have been causing unexplained latency on my end so I’ve since downgraded to previous versions. After researching insane amounts of forum posts, blog post comments, resident reviews and the like, I am still at a loss. You can see across my haphazard table, that I basically have the same issues across the board.
OR, there are gremlins in the pipelines. ORRR, its not me, its not the viewer, but something else entirely. Like HUGE gremlins.
For the foreseeable future, I plan to continue my viewer hopping. Its kind of like having shoes for different purposes, you could say. The Black Dragon viewer just happens to be my new Prada.
Thanks for stopping by on your busy Friday, and for being patient through all the non tech babble. Do peruse the credits for information about the items featured in the images today.
If you have any suggestions, comments, questions, jokes, recipes.. please come in and have some tea.. we’ll ruminate!
