Description: in this playlist of videos recorded live (may include off-topic chat) we use a furniture item, a backdrop scene, to take a look at IMVU Studio; a quicker way to 'convert' Furniture items into Rooms; how this might mean making adjustments to project in Blender (Blender 2.83 LTS used) before then looking more closely at Normal and Shininess (specular) maps; how to make them quickly and effectively from 2D artwork to save time but maintain decent results; tricks and tips for optimising materials to avoid hitting project file-size limits, and more...
