smooth transaction perspective - orthogonal projection (from 3D to 2D)

Oct 29, 2010 at 12:37 AM

Is there a way to make smooth transaction from perspective to orthogonal projection in Balder...

I mean like smothly making 3D look like 2D... and back...

  • For 3D we have - CreatePerspectiveFieldOfView..
  • For 2D - CreateOrthographic...

So i nead to know is it possible to make smoth transaction between Perspective and Ortogonal matrix?? Is it even possible?

(it would be perfect if there will be a way to set some variable from 1.0 to 0.0, where 1.0 - perspective, 0.0 - ortogonal projection)

Hi,

this is not possible with Balder today. I'm not sure its possible at all. The two matrices are quite different. But since its a very cool feature, I'm willing to create a work item and give it a go. :) 

What it means is that it would need to interpolate between the two matrices, I just need to look at the math and see if that could be done.
