The Materials project has reached the Beta Viewer. What is the Materials Project you ask? The Materials Project brings in specific shaders into Second Life which will make objects appear more realistic.
I wanted to show this realism in a video because I felt that was the best way to capture it. Here is the link to the video and I’m also embedding it below. http://youtu.be/LO5vVyoMHJE
To view materials-ready items in Second Life right now, you can follow these simple steps:
Check “Advanced Lighting Model” under Me > Preferences > Graphics
Now if you wear any materials-ready items, you should be able to see it.
Damien Fate of FATEwear has already released swim trunks for men that are materials-ready. I am not sure which other designers have released materials-ready items as well. I have asked my friends on plurk about it, if you know of any, please let me know in the comments, I would love to check them out.
This is definitely a feature I’m enthusiastic and excited about. I’m looking forward to getting my hands on more materials ready items to play with!
I also wanted to share some other informative posts about the Materials Project which I think you guys will find useful:

I remember the first time I met Mr. Page I was at the Zaara store. I was just standing there minding my own business when he immed me out of the blue and stated that Zaara has asked for ME to stop loitering in her store. I was like “EXCUSE ME!??!!!” LOL It seems every […] Continue reading →
At times I feel very privileged to have such wonderful friends, even if I feel I don’t deserve them. I’m quite anti-social and a hermit so not the most engaging friend at times. But I still appreciate the few that have stuck around and learned to deal with my mood swings and encourage me to […] Continue reading →
Mr. Raul Crimson has such a warm personality, when he talks to you it feels as if he’s giving you a big teddy bear hug. I’ve been following Mr. Crimson on flickr and his blog for a while now.

So what can be said about my summer vacation? Returning to the country where I was born, have my earliest memories from and where my roots lie, was a very surreal experience.

So in keeping my promise to blog more male fashion, I harassed my friend Az to come pose for me. He got a little nervous and took about 30 minutes to decide what to wear and when I teased him about it he said, “Well now I feel like a girl.” LOL I know he’s […] Continue reading →
