Cool tip from Gaynor Gritzi of Flickr and Second Life.
Gaynor Gritzi says:Yes, and we're all narcissists in Second Life aren't we?
Simply because of the practicalities that if you want an av in a picture, it's quicker and easier to do it yourself than try to explain to someone else what you want them to do, where you want them to stand etc.
First of all you need to bring up the client menu - if you can't see the words Client and Server at the top of your screen then press CTRL+ALT+D. See them now?
Then go to Client > Character > Slow Motion Animations.
Now whenever you play an animation, it'll be in SloMo - about half speed. It helps if you're trying to catch an action shot - particularly good for taking dancing shots - at least that's what I usually use it for.
The reason why this is a tip for narcissists is that you'll be the only one that can see the SloMo - everybody else will just see you acting normally.
