3ds max 2014 camera perspective match scale camera issue

Hi guys,

I been using the new perspective match camera feature in max 2014 lately and i noticed it actually does a sight uneven weird scale to my camera. Wonder if its the same for u guys.

Will it be ok to work with a uneven scaled camera? Any notable problem?

This often happens, sometimes it is just plain incorrectly calculated, sometimes it is because the image was cropped and the centre of perspective is not in the centre of the image. Certain cameras aren't manufactured correctly and the sensor could be slightly off-centered.

If you do a match just using X/Y or Z/Y or Z/X instead of 3 axis match it tends to not give you scaled cameras.

I have mixed results, and normally end up trying all 4 different ways to try get a lens which is as close to my EXIF information.

Thanks for replying David.

I have never got a resulting lens that is the same as my camera log sheet info as well. Normally a 32mm lens will end up as 40+mm lens in 3ds max. But my 3d objects seems to sit well in the scene.

Thanks, will try out the other axis matching options.

Make sure your aperture width is set correctly as well.
