So far, we've looked at copying objects from one plane onto another plane that's …parallel to it, or even onto the same plane. …When we move an item onto an adjacent plane, we have to think about the angle …of view as well. Let's make a new layer and call this …onedoor, and we'll go back into vanishing point. …And you can see when we re-add the vanishing point, it's showing all the …layers in our composition. Let's use the Marquee tool to select the …door, and now we can hold down once again, Option on a Mac, Alt on a PC, and …we can drag this door around the corner. Let's position this new door at the …bottom of this wall. Now here, there's a problem.…
When we're viewing the door in its original position, we're viewing it from …the side. We need to flip this door so that we're …viewing it in the correct perspective for the wall in which we're placing it. …We can do that by going into Free Transform, by clicking this button. …And now, we can click the Flop button at the top. …Flop will flip a selection horizontally, and Flip will flip it vertically. …
