Using two-point perspective correction

Oftentimes when producing visualization renders, a SketchUp artist will be asked to mimic the use of a perspective control or shift lens as employed by many visualization photographers. The basic idea of such lenses is that they give photographers the ability to control the appearance of perspective in an image. The lens can actually be moved parallel to the camera's sensor. Architectural photographers often make use of this functionality to avoid convergence of vertical lines in tall buildings, but of course it can be used to straighten the verticals in any perspective photograph.

Indeed, if we take a render of our start scene, you'll see why this kind of functionality--the ability to correct perspective--may also be something that we need to do inside of our visualization renders. Clearly, we have a number of vertical lines that are, well, not really vertical. They're leaning quite badly in fact. Now if you're a regular SketchUp user, then you're probably thinking, w...
