Default 1 & 2 point perspective grids - 05-29-2005, 03:48 PM

I found them during some matte painting searches. A few of the artists use them while sketching concepts, just thought I'd post em if you need 'em.

Just a little heads up the two point grid is for a very short lens and the matte painting will look squeezed because the two vanishing points are very close to each other.

If you need a longer lens look then use the one point grid and duplicate it as a second layer set to multiply in photoshop. this way you can adjust the convergance for the the type of lens you are aiming for.

General rule long lens vanishing points wide apart, short lens vanishing points closer. Normal lens 50-80mm 35mm 90 degress from the camera position.

i think you can just take the 2-point grid and scale it out horizontally and then crop the area you want in your image if you need a longer lens.
