Keeping vertical items vertical in perspective


Recommended Posts

You can keep your camera level and later move the crop of your viewport upwards

until you get your desired image crop.

(But that setup will get destroyed when you re-enter the Camera and do changes

to the Camera, you have to readjust crop and viewport position afterwards again)

when you are on design layer and you have any custom perspective view you can correct verticality by selecting any standard view: Left, Right ... This approach is useful if your custom view is close to any standard view...then by panning you have little freedom to position view point and still keep standard view verticality ...Yes you are restricted to the standard view but still there is at least this possibility.

Hope this make sense.

Camera height and Look-to height must be equal. If you're missing some detail at the edges of the image, simply raise or lower the camera height of move the camera's position. The key is that Camera Height and Look-To must be equal.

That is what I meant by :

But this alone will prevent from distorted vertical lines only,

but you may not get your desired "section of picture"

 

 

Therefore the second step :

Means you keep your camera strictly horizontal

(your image will show only half of the desired building and another half

of unwanted ground)

Instead of tilting the camera upwards, to get your"section of picture",

which would distort vertical lines, you have to move the cameras lens

vertically.

 

This is basically the same result as you would get in Modo or Cinema4d

when shifting the image sensor by a Y shift value.

(Or a real old Foto Camera with large film size and Bellow)

or in Twinmotion or Enscape, automatically by just activating things like

an "architectural camera" Option or similar.

 

 

 

The problem in VW is just that this fragil setup easily destroys itself .... :
