Aligning a photo-based project to final structure

Postby sjkistler » Fri Feb 24, 2017 12:19 am

I mapped the front of the building I'm working with based on a photo. It has 34 quads (see pic). It turns out that I'll need to set up my projector at a slight angle. Is it possible to manipulate the full set of quads as a group to accommodate the perspective? I can only figure out how to resize, rotate, and slide up/down left/right when I select all of the quads. I found this tutorial http://www.madmapper.com/after-effects- ... -building/, but it is only manipulating one quad and therefore can use grid warping on that single quad to align the mapping to the final position of what if being mapped. I can't figure out how (or if) it is possible to do this with a project containing multiple quads.

I appreciate any guidance. Thanks!

Yes you can do a perspective transform on a multiselection of surface (or a group). For that, select all surfaces, Press option key (alt) + click on one of the four handles of the selection and move it, it will do perspective transform !
