How to set .png image over perspective viewport?

Recommended Posts

Hi there

Does anyone know how to set a .png image over Perspective viewport?

I know how to do it in the background of top, right and front views but i couldn't find a way to do it above perspective  

I upload an image to better explain the idea, 

Thanks in advance!

Nope - can't be done natively. If you need a ref pic that usefully moves with the viewport you have to put it on a plane object (of same aspect ratio as pic) in the scene.

Well, what I usually do for this is to use PureRef (which you can download for free), put my image inside and set the window to be a transparent overlay that is always on top, that way you can get the desired effect pretty easily and comfortably

    You're welcome 🙂 If you want to use video reference, for animation for example, there is also a program called KeyframeMP, which is basically the same as PureRef but it can play videos via scrubbing. I use it almost everyday, it's super handy, but really only for videos
