Meeting the Challenge

Ok B – you challenged me today. You said “so make a video of your prim so we can all see it turning”. HAH!!! I DID IT!!! I easily found a video capture program. Many thanks to CamStudio . That was extremely simple. But then when I came to upload it here, WordPress doesn’t take .avi files. So the hunt was on – how to convert an .avi file to a .gif file. I was emailing M and IM’ing K and googling all over. And I did it!! Found another freeware out there – many thanks to Magic Swf2Gif.

And here it is – My First Video. Ever. Press the Play button and watch my prim turn and change colors, right before your very eyes! (I know it says “Loading” but push play anyway.)

Okay, there are probably better ways to do this. But I did this all on my own. So for a first-timer, flying solo (but with encouragement from M & K), this is pretty darn good!!!

And now for a question I’ve been meaning to ask for ages…..
Ahuva sits in a chair and logs out of SL. Suppose Andy Avatar comes along and sits in the SAME chair and is still sitting there when Ahuva logs back in. What happens? Will I be on Andy’s lap? Will he be on my lap? (I know I materialize standing, but I’m usually standing on the chair.)

    Instead of making it a link to the gif, why not jus the gif? Then no click.

    But, great work!

    When’s the vid of Ahuva being posted šŸ™‚ ?

    When you rez you will be standing on top of the person sitting in the chair or possibly right next to the chair. It happens and no one really cares. No one gets hurt and it can be very amusing when things like that happen too.

    BTW, people who have been inworld for any length of time use the word “rez” to talk about the appearance of anything inworld. So your avatar rezes and you rezed your rotating prim. Of course “materialize” is perfectly correct its just not the word most folks use. I have been looking for a link for a most useful SL dictionary I once saw but I can find it. In anycase, the SLUniverse forums and the forum on the SL mainwebpage have lots of useful tips for new folks if you have not seen them already. I am pretty sure the dictionary is on the main SL forum somewhere.

    Ha, you’re not a newbie anymore! You’ve made a scripted object, and you’ve posted a video from SL in your weblog. (I’ve been inworld since Nov 2006 and I still haven’t done the latter.) So now you *must* put a picture and clever About words into your profile, and you’ll be a total guru…
