Revision as of 01:39, 4 June 2007

The following's a list of Second Life tutorials. This isn't meant to be a complete compilation, but specifically lists tutorials I've personally viewed and have found helpful. I (Torley Linden) started this with the intention of providing an easy-access resource for SL vidtuts, because currently (2007-02-27), they're scarce and hard-to-find.

Please add what you've found useful; all I request is that you keep the presentation consistent so this page serves future generations well, and I'll be revisiting to learn from your knowledge —

"May we watch over the shoulders of our enlightened educators with smiles as plentiful as water!"

Video Tutorials in the Knowledge Base

You can also download most of these vidtuts (feel free to link to those URLs to stream them inworld)!

    • 1. The Apple Shows the steps required to create a sculpted prim, and includes close-ups of the build tools so that detail can be seen of the settings and options. This video shows how to create an apple, one of the pieces of fruit available in the library.
    • 2. A Hat - Using the Rokuro (lathe) tool, this video shows how to create a hat using a sculpted prim.
  • How to create a forest wall - By Benja Kepler. "shows how to make a 'forest wall' of two wall panels and the way a single photograph can be applied to them both"
  • Where Was That Money Tree? - By Benja Kepler. With an object's location, as a SLURL, now being recorded in your Chat History if it gives you a Notecard, this video shows how this can be used to keep track of Money Trees. Same idea can be used for Lucky Chairs too.
