Content Creation/Mesh Import User Group
Come discuss any issues around content creation - its challenges, limitations in the tools, workarounds and successes. Land is provided next to the office build for rezzing example content. Bug reports and feature requests should have JIRA ticket numbers if at all possible, as it makes it easier to collaborate on issues both internally and externally.
Priority will be given to topics that are posted in advance and are relevant to the goals of the office hour. Feel free to include relevant links to JIRA or wiki pages.
Agenda for the next user group meeting is:
Please add topics below prior to 11:50 AM. Also, please put your SL name down so we can follow up if we have questions. Thanks!

- One contributing factor to lag is textures. We already know that making an object with numerous 1024x1024 textures is a daft practice when it comes to building, even though it's appallingly widespread. The thing is, what we do know is that Second Life only supports bitmap textures (.tga, .png, .jpg format). These are formats that don't scale well. Put a texture on any prim's face with one repeat only, make that prim really big (retaining only one repeat of the texture on the face concerned) and watch it lose resolution and definition. Therefore, the temptation to use exceedingly high-resolution textures is strong. But really, for wood, metal, marble etc textures, do we need to rely exclusively on bitmap textures? Wouldn't it be a good move to provide support for procedural textures as well? These are only a couple of KB, they're really what texture makers use in order to finally make the resulting .jpg, .png or .tga files and they're infinitely scalable.
