Luxurious Materials In Bed

I made an interesting discovery as I was setting up this photo. My plan was to take a photo of Fashionably Dead's bra and half slip set and clever garter and flask which were released at Collabor88 for August. I used the Claryon bedroom set from The Loft, also a Collabor88 item. The discovery came when I turned on shadows and started playing with lighting. The bedspread began to shimmer like a real silk spread. The new Claryon bed is Materials ready - Linden Lab's latest shiny (literally) for our viewing pleasure.

Materials is a texturing process creators can use to give added depth to our Second Life objects. With it, texture responds to light and shadow. So far it's only available in the official viewer. I've taken photos of a few items using Materials, but this was the clearest expression yet. I had to share because this bed is lovely if you can't see materials, but with them - it's breathtaking. I added the raw shots below to show how dramatic a difference Materials can make.

This photo (a raw shot) uses Strawberry Singh's onyx windlight setting.
This photo (also a raw shot) merely adds the light of one table lamp at the right side. See the difference?
