Finally, I’m back. My brand new rig is here, I’ve gotten it to behave to my preferences (mostly) and I am happier than ever. It’s a lot to get used to though, like this keyboard that just feels so tough compare to my laptop. And the fact that I went from 17 inch screen to 24 inch kinda blows my mind.
One of my main problems was a bit of a stupid one. My shadows were too sharp. No amount of blurring would help. It was like my new fancy graphics card just HAD to show me what it could do. I finally found a debug setting buried in the advanced menu though and I think this picture turned out really well in the end. I’m very happy with it.
I thought I’d show you the difference between the picture raw and the picture after I’ve edited it. So click here to go to a gif I made that shows the difference, if you’re interested.
One of the first things I did when I logged back on after over a week away from SL was get myself a brand new outfit. You could her my relieved sigh a mile away, I’m sure.
