How Does Perspective Work

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I've followed a number of videos and just can't get perspective mapping to work. I simply want to add a picture into the screen of the laptop (file attached)

I go to projections and add a perspective projection, I map it to the screen. Then I click on the hand icon (have also clicked on arrow icon, no difference) I then place a picture, (at this point I only see the picture) I then merge down, click back on perspective projection (also just simply cleared projection at this point again no difference) and I basically seem to have to completely different images. They both show as pixel layers. Most of the time once I've placed the new picture, I can't even get back to the laptop image. In layers for the picture I've just inserted I can't see the laptop!!

Can anyone help?

ok so it turns out I need to export that pic to a jpg first, then it works. Why is that? seems odd it does not work from an actual photo file!?!?

What happens if you Rasterise the photo you've placed in the program first? A lot of processes don't work on an image layer as its not pixel based and can’t be manipulated.
