Learn about setting custom perspective in a scene.
- [Instructor] Here's our coffee cup with its splash.…To add the background we just go to File, Import,…and choose Image as Background.…Let's select this coffee stall image.…It'll load it up, and it'll look at it,…and say, "Do you want me to do the usual adjustments?"…Click the Environment Light, check.…Match Sunlight, check.…But you'll notice that the Match Camera Perspective…is grayed out.…
That's because it's unable to calculate the perspective…on such a complex scene.…We're going to have to do that ourselves.…We'll click OK.…You can see how it's added a reflection of our background…into that shiny coffee cup,…which makes it look much more like it belongs in this scene.…Now for that tricky point at the horizon.…To fix that, we can choose the horizon tool.…We can drag this up and down…to set the position of the horizon.…
The question is, where does the horizon go?…Looking at this image,…we're looking down on the top of this tin at the back,…at the top of this cup,…and we're looking down at the top of the jar.…Anything we're looking down on must be below the horizon,…
