Select Projection Type

Overview

Enscape offers three projection modes to choose from:

Perspective

Two-Point

Orthographic

By default the Projection mode is set to ‘Perspective’.

Select a Projection Mode

To be able to change the Projection mode you will need to have Enscape open and in focus. You can then select which Projection mode you would like to use in one of two ways:

You can select from the Projection options under the Main tab in the Enscape Visual Settings window.

NOTE: only the ‘Perspective’ Projection option is available in VR.

Or, you can directly choose which Projection type you want to use in the Enscape viewport’s User Interface (UI), where you will see some buttons at the top of the Enscape viewport.

When Orthographic Projection is selected, the Depth of Field, Focal Point, and Field of View options in the Enscape Visual Settings’ Main tab dialog will be disabled or not be available at all.

Furthermore, the buttons for the Video Editor, Panoramas, Minimap, and Navigation Mode will be disabled in the Enscape viewport UI.

Enscape Toolbar buttons disabled when in Orthographic Projection mode.

The options for Projection will only take affect when View Synchronization is disabled.

Once View Synchronization is enabled it will always result in the Projection being automatically set and locked to ‘Perspective’ for as long as View Synchronization is enabled.

Disabling View Synchronization will unlock the Projection options and return it to whichever Projection mode had previously been set by the user.
