Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Perspective viewports, part of Learning Vectorworks (2014).
…As a finishing touch on my collar drawing,…I want to add an angle view as a reference for the end user.…Since we're going to be using angle view, I'm going to use a perspective view,…even though this is not the drawing type you would want to add a perspective view…on, as it skews the proportions of the part, but…we're going to bend the rules just a little for the sake of the video.…I'm going to go to Create a New Viewport.…I'll leave the Viewport Name the same, make sure my layer is turned on,…set my scale at 1:2, change the view to a Right Isometric view,…change the Rendering to Hidden Line, and change the Projection to Perspective.…
Also set the Perspective type to Wide and click OK.…Let's drag this up and update it to take a better look.…It's not quite the angle I was looking for and…doesn't give an overall sense of the part like I wanted.…I'm going to change the view from Right Isometric to Left Isometric and…click Update.…We're closer but still not quite where I want it to be.…I'm going to right-click on the viewport and scroll down to Edit Camera.…
