Is there a button or shortcut key that allows me to quickly alter the orientation of the Force Parallel lines?
They always open on the horizontal plane, and there are many times I need them vertically. I currently drag them round and upwards, which only takes a few moments to do, but when you find yourself doing it many times in one day it does start to feel like a big faff!
A simple button or shortcut key to instantly switch the lines from horizontal to vertical (and vice versa) would be utterly wonderful.
- If this already exists, where/what is it?
- If it doesn’t exist, could one be added please? @DxOStaffPO
Like VP, a second button for “Perspective correction by the verticals” would be nice.
Otherwise you can use “Perspective correction by Rectangle”.
The 8 point tool has all I need…
Haven’t used the force parallels and rectangle tools for a long time.
Ah, I haven’t found the 8 point tool, happy to give it a go though. Which icon/menu is it?
It’s also in the top menu of the editor window.
OMG, it is so obvious now I’ve found it! 8 point is exactly all I needed.
When selecting the “force parallel” tool, there is one choice under the window, at the left, allowing me to change the color of the tool lines. I now select yellow, much better for me.
I would like to suggest adding another option down there, “switch between horizontal and vertical” which would instantly allow me t get the lines oriented properly for the image I’m working on. That would save a lot of time and frustration.
I mostly use the 8 point too or the perspective tool, both of which allow corrections horizontally, vertically and in both direction. I therefor don’t need to care about how the lines are aligned. They usually come up in the wrong direction anyways.
That’s the issue, and there is no obvious way to correct it.
A third button at the bottom (horizontal or vertical) would solve this.
I didn’t want to go to 8-points or more - all I wanted is to correct the distortion from the camera being aimed a little too high. Vertical lines are what I needed, but I didn’t realize then how to change the orientation.
