New project progress & some Project Bento thoughts

Have you heard about Project Bento yet? It’s an extension of the Second Life avatar, adding two new sets of limbs, a tail, face and hand bones, and more! It will bring a host of new possibilities to content creation in Second Life and is slated to arrive on AGNI (the main SL grid) by the end of Quarter 2. I’ve got a new video up discussing new things I’m working on, as well as progress on Project Bento, which is just around the corner!   I was also part of the Drax Files Radio Hour podcast recently with Draxtor Despres, Medhue Simoni and Mahadma Resident to talk about Bento – you can catch that here: By the way, as I mentiond in the video, I recently wrote a new JIRA issue which focuses upon maximum file size for animations. The current cap is 120kB & 60 seconds; while I feel 60 seconds is quite generous, unfortunately the addition of so many new bones to the avatar and the implicit necessity for many animations to include *both* rotation and location data is likely to inflate the size of many Bento-related animations significantly.… Read the rest
