Join David Mattingly for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a box for the base of the castle, part of Digital Matte Painting Essentials 5: Camera Projection in Maya.
…We need to create our first box for the base of the castle.…This'll be the trickiest one to set up since all…the rest of the geometry will be based on it.…The box needs to align to the base of the castle in the painting.…Go up to Create, then Polygon Primitives, then Cube.…And select the box to the right of the cube to see the options.…Set the width, height,…and depth to four.…If you set them all to one, you won"t have any guides to line up the geometry.…
If you have them set to, say 40, you're box will be…so dense you won"t be able to see your painting through it.…So, four on all sides is best.…Click Create, and the box is created in the center of the grid.…There is another option called Interactive Creation, that requires…you to drag out the geometry on the grid.…You can set that option under Create…> Polygon Primitives, and then Interactive Creation.…I prefer to have Maya just create the object in…the middle of the grid, so I leave that turned off.…
Go into the Perspective camera.…You'll notice the cube is already selected, because you just created it.…
