Friendly greetings! In this video tutorial (watch previous episodes), I take on a time-tested topic that’s trumped many an aspiring creatician: TRANSPARENT TEXTURES!
Ever wondered how textures without visible edges are made? From cardboard cutouts to flames to neon signs to trees, the usages are many, and it’s fun to do. Using the power of a GIANT LEEK… I kid you not…
It’s so easy once you understand that working with PNG format is far easier than the clunky old TGA route (if you struggled with that before). I show you how!
For your continued learnage, here are the “OMG GIANT LEEK” source files:
- BMP – Raw Second Life snapshot saved to hard drive — whenever possible, I convert BMPs to PNGs because the former are so wasteful!
- PSD – Open in Photoshop or another compatible app.
- PNG – The edited result, ready to upload into Second Life.
Let me also highly recommend Siddean Munro’s wonderful tutorial on the topic. And with more enthusiastic energy, I appreciate your appreciation.
I make these video tutorials so you can have a happier Second Life.
