Increase perspective distortion?

Creator

Hi,

Lack of depth perception is a real hinderance to my work. Activating Perspective View Mode helps but I would like more of this effect. Can the perspective distortion level be modified in ProcessSimulate 13.0?

No, this is currently not possible.
We used to support this in Robcad, but not in PS.
Can you explain the use-case?

Increasing the perspective distortion would help my brain distinguish between near and far objects. Currently in crowded complex cells, I have trouble telling how far away some objects are. It doesn't help that the light source is always emitted directly from the camera either. That's another thing that ought to be configurable.

Ok, understood.

Lights were changed, in some version after yours, I believe already in 13.1
Not sure they give your more depth, but they avoid too much specular reflection when looking exactly from side or top.

The "Feature Lines over solid" also helps distinguishing between foreground and background.
(also use antialiasing to reduce distracting flickering)

The "Dynamic Clipping Plane" also helps, by removing foreground objects.

Beside this, I can only recommend to use a spacemouse and keep the scene moving, this helps a lot.

Even when it doesn't help too much in your daily work: you might take a look a the new VR-support in 14.0.1.
This would give you a completely different view on your scene ;-)
