Second Life 3d Mesh Import

We have written frequently about 3d Mesh Import in Second Life. The Collada file format would be supported allowing for complex 3d Creation Tools such as Maya, 3D Studio Max, or Blender to be used to create and import directly into Second Life.

This feature is currently in closed beta testing with the Non Disclosure Agreement just recently lifted. The open beta test for 3d Mesh Import will be coming to Second Life soon.

Importing 3d Mesh Objects Finally Coming to Second Life

Second Life Import Mesh

It has been a long time coming. Linden Lab recently announced that a feature that will allow the importing of 3d mesh objects created in professional modeling tools such as Maya and 3D Studio Max will finally be available in the second quarter of 2010. The Mesh Public Beta will initially be limited to the beta grid but should give much more power to creators and developers.

This will make many people very happy but will also heighten copy infringement concerns and naturally lead to additional restrictions and rules as well as possible additional costs.

Wow those Second Life Maya Tutorial Classes just got a lot more useful….

Okay maybe this video is a particularly sexist or adult subject matter but it does beautifully demonstrate how Second Life could appear in 4D and jump off of your computer screen with 3d Anaglyph-Glasses (Red-Cyan) and certain 3d effects to create a more realistic virtual reality 3d experience. Can you imagine if this YouTube 3d technology can be adapted to the Second Life browser client or World of Warcraft or any other MMORPG game? Check out the below High Definition Video below:
