Keep the vertical lines straight

Recommended Posts

Dear fellow C4D'er.

 

 

I know there is a solution for this but I can't find how it's named and done in C4D.

How do you keep your vertical lines straight in C4D when shooting through a low positioned perspective camera?

I think it's called lens correction in architectural terms if I'm correct.

 

In attachment my view that I want, but then with vertical straight lines of course.

Many thanks for the help again. It's much appreciated!

 

Regards,

Pieter

You have to keep your camera level to make the verticals straight,  at which point it will no doubt cut the top off, then you can use the Y offset in the camera to move the film plane up to frame your shot. this is the same principle as a shift lens or a view camera.

  • Thanks Deck,

     

    I was fiddling with the Y offset but didn't know you had to first level the camera.

    It sounds stupid but I just didn't know how it worked.

     

    Much appreciate your time.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    No worries, its a photography thing that just happens to be repeatable in Cinema. In a proper view camera you can spin around and offset all the axis to some extent, helping with focus as well as changing the geometry and crop of the image.

    You can of course use a title shift camera, just search for title in the content browser
