Site Preview HUD

leave a comment »

Update: Demo stays for a while.

I have designed a new tool, and now invite you to try it out.

At last year’s VWBPE conference (previous post) I wanted to give visitors a quick, customized tour of a design I was presenting…even when I was AFK.

This “Site Preview HUD”

  • combines scripted camera movement with audio narration
  • is “touch to wear”
  • is temporary, nothing is added to Inventory
  • quickly shows the points of interest in a region or build

I am not selling this object.

This is not an advertisement.

This effect is new to me; so, it may be new to others, as well. I would be happy to share full-perm copies with the right users. (The hard part is creating .wav files, setting camera coordinates.)

You can find* it here: SLURL

Demo will be removed after a week a month or two. Holler if it’s missing, and I’ll set one out again.

There is also a Notecard at the demo location. Please share that—or this link—with others.

I like this effect. I think it would be useful in introducing visitors to the key spots in a build.
