Contest 23: UI Abstraction

Theme: UI Abstraction

This contest requires you to investigate the User Interface and find those settings (mainly in De-Bug) that will make teh freaky pix... *clears throat* ...I mean will make interesting abstract compositions.

To get started:
Control-Alt-Shift toggles the Client and Server menus.

Try setting something - experiment with, say,
CLIENT--> RENDERING--> INFO DISPLAYS --> OCTREE. What about combining that with COMPOSITION? Play around :D

Don't forget the choices in the Snapshot interface - Object Mattes and Depth.
Don't forget that you can "tear off" menus so you don't have to open/close a million times.

To Enter:
Enter textures of Second Life screenshots.
Textures can be no bigger than 512x512 - rectangular photos saved as 512x512 regain their proportions once they are put on a prim.

Title up to 3 entries with your name + title <---= so I don't lose it in my inventory
Send them to Osprey Therian in a with MOD permission and COPY perms.
Give me an IM so I know to look for them.

Don't send them in a notecard - I say this as I look at textures every day but I rarely look at notecards. If I don't get your heads-up the entry gets buried under the billion spam notecards I get per week.

I hate it when things get lost - the only entries to've been lost thus far were in notecards.

This time no categories. Unmanipulated or manipulated are both OK but I haven't been getting enough entries to warrant two categories.


Entries accepted until January 20th at 5:30pm .

We will have an awards ceremony (probably on Monday, 22 January 2007).

Cash prizes.

The Photography Studio is located in The Brownstone East, Grignano
Grignano is a pg sim. <--=

I will probably enter since I have done some playing with the XML and ini settings already. Also, take a look at my mostly SL Art Blog and decide if you want to link to it...

Sounds like fun! It never occurred to me to toy with the interface this way. Thanks for the cool idea... I'll blog it and send an entry in too.

Torley, I'd love it if you'd send up to 3 entries (I left off the "3" part in the information dagnabbit).

People are having fun with this!
