Friendly greetings! It’s me again, Torley Linden, and continuing from last week’s tip to turn off the typing animation + sound, I’ve got something really useful for any time when you’ve wanted your avatar to see further away without having to move yourself closer. Wonder what I mean by that?
Like last week’s tip, this often gets passed around from Resident to Resident, so I’d like to draw more proper attention to it: it’s called Disable Camera Constraints, and it’s in the Client menu (which can look scary, but is where a number of useful, tucked-away features reside).
Camera skills are fundamental to the Second Life experience — using them capably means you’ll be able to get around easier with greater confidence! To learn how Disable Camera Constraints and a number of related techniques can benefit you, watch this video tutorial!
Please feel free to comment on what you’d like to see next, and thanx to Prospero Linden and the Residents who suggested I do this. After you know how to Disable Camera Constraints, you’ll wonder how you ever lived your Second Life without it.
Next week, another tip! Come back and find out what it is. 🙂
Yours in inspiration,
