Join David Mattingly for an in-depth discussion in this video Fixing two common projection problems, part of Digital Matte Painting 5: Camera Projection in Maya.
…With our basic camera projection done, now…it's time to dive into advanced camera projection.…First, let's talk about the most common problem that can turn…up in a basic camera projection, and that is texture doubling.…Take a look at the cube at the top of the castle and note…that we see two towers and domes at the end of the camera move.…The reason we're seeing two of each is that the projection cam is projecting…the same texture on the back of the cube as the front of the cube.…
And since the cube doesn't resemble the towers and dome very closely, we see that…second backside projection as the animation cam…moves out of alignment with the projection cam.…There are two ways to fix this.…A more complicated way and a simple way.…The simple way works alright, but the complicated way is a lot better.…I'm going to show you…the simple way first.…Let's go into the perspective cam and take a…look at the cube at the top of the castle.…You can clearly see the projection on the back of the cube.…
To do that, make sure you have backface culling turned…
