Renderworks camera making warped perspective

Question

I'm trying to use the renderworks camera but some buildings are slanted and warped.  Can anyone advise what setting to use to get an accurate perspective?

 

Thank you

Click on camera and go fine tune and adjust the perspective angle or select normal perspective.

Yes, I tried normal perspective it doesn't seem to make a difference.

 

Perspective angle didn't take the warping away, just made it less.

 

I'd prefer to use orthogonal though.  The problem I have is it doesn't show me the camera view from where I placed the camera, it shows me a view from 100s of feet away from the site model

You have to keep the camera and target height the same.

This way you will get a 2-point perspective or what is called an architectural camera, so no distortions

of vertical lines.

To finally get your desired clipping (look up), you have to use a viewport with manual border geometry

that you edit and move on your sheet layer.

(Like in reality you will use a special shift lens to adjust the viewing direction while keeping the camer

level)

Yes! Thank you, I was thinking to myself, gee I've never used a camera that warped at the edges so much, except a fish eye lens... but why would anyone want that for a professional rendering?!

If it makes sense you can use it for more dramatic and dynamic perspectives.
