    LW2015 Match Perspective tutorial

    Hey everybody this is my feeble attempt at doing a tut on the Match Perspective feature in LW2015. It's a really nice feature and I was able to meet a client's needs with very little fuss. Sorry about the crappy sound, I should probably get a real mic although I'm not a very good speaker anyway so maybe I should stick to silent tuts.

    You don't have to place the corners of the direction lines on the corners of the object. It really only cares about the position and direction of the lines, not how long or short they are. So you can avoid those overlapping corners.

    Also, the "Frame Size" lock refers to the "Frame" setting in the camera panel, not the resolution. If you are using a photo, chances are the EXIF data will have the focal length information in it, so you'd set the focal length in the camera panel to that and lock it. It will then tweak the combination of zoom factor and frame size to fit the perspective amount.

    Good to know. Thanks. The image provided to me had no meta data so I guess I could have left the lock drop down alone?

    Tim - thanks for the tutorial. Your sounds was ok - you shouldn't worry so much about it.

    Please don't do silent tutorials, they are maddening to follow. I'd rather view a tutorial in Portuguese or Mandarin than a silent tutorial.

    You could. Locking the focal length or locking the fame size will give the same perspective amount. Where the choice becomes important is if you need to match depth of field. Then you need to know what the original focal length or frame size was.

    I'm really concerned for the lack of official LW videos for LW 2015. I would have expected at least some simple walkthroughs. Not getting good vibes with this cycle.

    PS. But thank you Snosrap for stepping up.

    No problem. I didn't get some of the details right so it's been great getting Jarno's input.

    Please, just some Quick & Dirty intros

    I'm wondering if the LW3dG think we need highly polished, extensive, comprehensive videos? BECAUSE WE DON'T!!!

    Simple walk-thrus are GREAT, something to get us past our first misconceptions.

    So, Matt, Cody, Jen, Rob: quick, rough blasts are preferable to floundering around in our swamps of ignorance.

    Hey guys, I thought you might like to see the final product, so here is the link to the website. I had no involvement other than creating the shadow and it looks like for performance issues they cut back on the number of frames I provided.

    Tim, thanks for the tutorial.

    It's been over 6 months since this thread began and there still are very few newtek tutorials, even Lino's promised ant part 2 has never been added, sorry to *****, but it's very discouraging.

    While I'm not the biggest fan of LW3DG's tutorial postings (or lack there-of, and don't get me started on the Octane stuff! ), both ant tutorials were posted AFAIK...

    Part 1 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2QHnGvxZRg

    Part 2 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igFgk3xslgo

    Unless there was another one that I missed the first part of.

    Not a problem. Hopefully LW2016 will have some more goodies like this.
