Linden Lab discuss server side baking and the materials project on Designing Worlds

Now available on the web – our latest episode, as we are joined by Oz, Brooke, Troy and Nyx Linden to discuss the issues of Server Side Baking and materials.

This was a really fascinating show as not only did our guests from Linden Lab explain what these major changes to Second Life would entail, but we also went to Hippotopolis for a fascinating demonstration.

You can go there and check this out for yourselves but if you want to see the items properly displayed, you’ll need to download the special Materials Viewer (it doesn’t overwrite the main Linden Lab viewer).

If you’re wondering what server side baking and specular materials are and how they might affect your Second Life, this show should explain it.

In addition, Inara Pey has published a transcript of the first half of the discussion on her blog, which you may find useful too!
