Combining primitivesBuilding: Gluing a compound object, cloning and moving itThey were all done except the sit animations/poses.I have not covered animation prims because I don’t have the documentation.But I figured out how to make the sit-ball for the chairs.To have the sit-ball become part of the chair object, I took it into inventory.Storing and handling objects, including complex objectsThen I clicked on the chair to select it and rezzed a sit -ball.  Rezzed with the chair selected, the new sit-ball became a child of the chair.Then I put the sit-ball where I wanted it and glued it in place.  Then I took the finished chair into inventory.I can give you a copy if you have a place on the nonprofit Cybalounge.Place the seats on the baseCloning tools and the resultClick image to enlargeI want a row of identical seats for the talk show.Conveniently, the Clone function makes a row of identical objects.The cloneNumber tells how many duplicates I want.  The offset numbers tell how much to offset each successive duplicate.Knowing this, I click the base to select it, then rez a chair from inventory. I put the chair at one end of the base, leaving room for the chairs to be cloned.Then I use the Clone function to create the remaining 4 chairs.  To finish, I use the Group function to glue everything together into a single object.And I take it into inventory so I can give away copies.What about a big poster or video?For a poster, you make an .jpg image and import it.Building: Textures, ColladasThen you put it on a Plane. Building: Simple Primitives for your web-worldFor a video: Cybalounge build: put a video in your web-worldFor a web page: Building in Cybalounge HTML page prim: Put the web in your web-worldCybalounge has a new and easier way to display videos and web pages.  I will cover that in a later tutorial.Use casesFor all cases, the the people on stage can rez video displays or web pages. They can do this as needed, without prior preparation.  They will use the drag and drop method (tutorial coming later).For web pages, you do not want to accumulate more than a few on display.  One limit established in my Cybalounge web-world: 8-12 web-pages.Also for all cases, the show can be captured in video or streamed live.Video or live stream make the show accessible to anyone on the internet.Talk showHost and several panelists qualified to talk about the current topic.Host introduces panelists and asks questions about the topic.Video can make the show widely and persistently available Student presentation for class creditStudent(s) do research and make a presentation on a course topic. Instructor may be on stage to ask questions.Video may be reused in later classes.  Students may later use the video in a work-sample portfolio.Presentation in a conference or MOOCPresenter(s) and question panel on stage.Question panel is to ask questions on behalf of an audience.A 10 minute presentation is followed by 10 minutes of questions and answers.The above pattern is repeated as many times as needed.The presentation video can be reused for additional conferences or MOOCs.GeneralWhat is Cybalounge?
