First, orbit into the approximate photo position, and then match the photo using the standard axis handle interface.
- [Instructor] Let's take a look at photos…four and five.…Here's four and here's five.…These are both on the back side of the house.…Photo four, in particular, is kind of a…oblique view from this corner.…So let's try to match that perspective…here in the view port.…It's something like this.…And now I'll go ahead and click Plus…in the Match Photo dialogue box,…and select Photo Four.…
Now the red handles need to be adjusted…so they run along the side of the building.…And I'll just roughly position them at first.…And then the green handles have to go…along the back of the building.…And of course the origin point can also be moved.…So we're getting something that's close…to what we're looking at in the photo.…
We just need to zoom in and make some…more subtle adjustments.…And just make sure that these handles…are in reasonable locations.…And it's better if you move them further apart…because you have more separation,…and that leads to more accuracy.…Okay, and then down here.…
So the perspective is about right,…but the scale is off, and the position is off.…
