Controlling the visual style

In this video, you will review the standard visual styles and learn how to create your own to display 3D objects with your chosen visual cues. To represent 3D surfaces on a 2D screen, one needs visual cues to determine which surfaces obscure other surfaces in the dimension of depth. Open the Cathedral 2 project file. And then click here to open the Visual Style Controls menu. I'll switch to the Wire Frame Visual Style.

And this is hard to interpret because of the complexity of this model. There are so many intersecting lines. I can't tell what's what. If we go to the 2D wire frame style, it automatically changes the projection type to parallel. You can verify that over here on this menu. I'll change it back to perspective. Notice that when I do, it automatically changes me to the wire frame visual style. Let's try shaded. Now we see the surfaces, and we can make better sense of this geometry. You can see shaded with edges for a little bit more informati...
