Mapping the elevation of a building in Vectorworks from an image

Recommended Posts

Just completed a project for an outside street scene, I photographed the building and distorted it in photoshop to give me a flat elevation so I could use it as a billboard which works fine…..but I have just been watching a YouTube video and I see you can distort an image using pins onto the face of an extruded block and distorting it within the file….I don’t know if this is achievable in Vectorworks ….any help or advice would be appreciated……

i do that peter, just think it would be an good addition to the software to be able to manipulate an image as sketch allows....been sorting out camera match today think ive cracked it but i think you can only render camera match up to open gl.  bit of a bummer would have like to render in final quality but when i have tried this the object renders but the background image doesn't...... have you used camera match    cheers phil
