Perspective Match

Postby scottofazphx123 » Tue Sep 27, 2016 4:35 pm

Any thoughts for future updates to have a perspective match tool, much like artlantis site insertion or sketchup photo match? Just a though for us Archviz guys. This would be a very useful add and help the program get in front of more design firms that need this option.

Basically a plane with 90 deg corner(s) is identified in the photo. The software figures out the matching camera data in order to place objects in the photo.

Somehow this info is interpreted from how the points identified in the photo would map to a planar surface.

EDIT - Just want to add that the points are usually identified on a horizontal or vertical surface.

That is exactly correct. We use this to insert a building into a site photo etc. If simlab had this option i would be able to drop other software completely.
If you look at how sketchup. 3ds max and artlantis do this you will get the idea.

I am glad I asked, in the first look I thought you are looking for a texture coordinates generation tool, to place a texture from photo to a plane object.

Now it is clear, you are looking for a tool to determine the correct camera to place a 3D object in a photo.

I will make sure to communicate this to development team it should not be difficult to add this feature.

Has this functionality been added yet? 2 years later.

Hello Dan - I'll add myself as a +1 on this - I had taken out a separate new functionality request for the same thing. Basicaly just looking for something to match the camera angle to a backplate image as is present in Keyshot, Bunkspeed, Visualize etc.
