Additional help resources:
SPECIAL THANX must go to the makers of QAvimator:
Zi Ree (who also made a fun intro video tutorial), Darkside Eldrich, Christine Montgomery, Trinity Dejavu, Vince Invincible, Lynard Goodliffe, and more who helped. I remember being very thankful when QAvimator first emerged.
Furthermore, as Second Life becomes increasingly international, I need to thank Idea Boa, Smiley Barry, and Igel Hawks for translating the Video Tutorials page into Portuguese, Hebrew, and Dutch. And a “Saluti amichevoli!” (that’s “Friendly greetings!”) to Gaia Rossini from translating my “How to make video tutorials” instructions into Italian!
I welcome further help to translate so our knowledge can be spread worldwide — instructions are here!
