View Full Version : Question: Isometric Render?

02-25-2004, 11:23 PM

i build some buildings for an isometric game like "SimCity" .. the problem is only the Rendering, its never Isometric like in SimCity.

Did someone have a tip or a tutorial where i can read how to do it?

and you can switch the perspective view to an orto, place it like you want... not even cool but i did a opener with it - it works

whats bonus tools ??

i also am having this exact problem.. even if i render from an orthographic view im still getting a perspective out of it..

if i were to render a square at a 45 degree angle i would want to be able to duplicate it in photoshop and have it tileable. but it doesnt line up due to the perspective.

any solutions ? or if you know what bonus tools is then plz do tell more : P

thanks i got it.. it seems to be working ok.. cept i have a new problem now

the way this function works is it seems to collect all things in your scene and place them under a obj set and then scew the set to give you a orthographic look.

right now its taking my bones and my smoothed skin and skewing it .. which means my skin is getting a dble deform and thus giving me some major headaches

i cant seem to figure out how to get the function to not select cirtain objs in the scene ie(my smoothed skin)

anyone know of a solution .. or perhaps incountered the problem b4 ?
