Filters for Your Second Life Camera
Back in the day, I sooooo wanted a set of Cokin filters for my 35mm camera. I think I eventually got a UV filter, but I never got the cool colored and shaped filters I drooled over the Cokin catlaog.
So how happy was I when one day I realized I could make real-life style filters for my Second Life camera?
Here's how to do it.
Rez a plywood prim cube and apply a texture to it. Perhaps you have a nice ruby glass texture, like I do. Adjust transparency (you may need to play with this). Now apply it to your hud and position it in Edit. You may need to stretch or rotate it so it fully covers the screen
You are now looking through the world with (if you chose a red texture, rose-colored glasses).
It will be difficult to walk while wearing the HUD, so you'll want to get into position before wearing the HUD.
I usually zoom my camera and save my snapshots to disk by holding down the CTRL and tilde keys, but when I was playing with filters, I took my pictures in mouselook, using the Snapshots tab at the bottom of the screen.
