A First Look @ Mesh Clothes With The SL Materials Viewer

With the new [ hoorenbeek ] Mesh Leather Pants just released and on sale this weekend I bought the black ones to check them out. For the first time [ hoorenbeek ] not only includes multiple wear options with a product but also gives you 3 different “light versions”, one which is especially made for the new Second Life Materials Viewer, so I installed the version on my PC.

The first “light version” that [ hoorenbeek ] calls “static lights” (left picture) is what we are used to: the reflections and shadows are “built” into the texture. Then there's a “mixed lights” version included in the package which I don't show. Finally, we have the “dynamic lights” version which works only with one of the new materials viewers. Its texture is a highly detailed surface on which the respective windlight casts its lights and shadows for a more realistic look. (Hope this explanation is technically correct, lol.) 

Old versus New Look
