I’m looking to project curves from a surface onto another set of surfaces but done so in a non-parallel projection. I understand the project command translates curves in a parallel manner.
What I’m looking to do is translate curves from a curved surface in the “background” onto a set of curves in the “foreground” of a perspective shot, such that the image is scaled up and appears exactly the same size and shape even though one is closer and one is larger. The trick is that the curves in the background are projected onto a curved plane, and the foreground planes are on an angle to the desired perspective view. Hopefully the photo explains the set-up. The viewer would be standing on the point looking toward the text and read the letters projected onto the corresponding surface in front of them with no distortion.
Essentially I want to project curves as seen in the perspective view (if the viewer was standing on the point looking toward the text) project toward the viewer, with red letters on the red plane and blue on blue. Like a conical projection, or project towards a point.
The trouble with simply rotating the planes so they are over top the letters and translating them in a parallel projection is that if I stand at the desired view, the letters are out of spacing or overlapping on the ends (essentially out of focus). I have tried all kinds of flowalongsrf and pull orientations but I can’t seem to emulate a perfect perspectival projection.
I did finally find my old one, I had thought it was an .rvb which is why I didn’t find it originally, but it’s actually a python script - must have been among the earlier scripts I wrote in Python, as it’s from 2013. I’ll throw it out here, but I have no idea if it still works…
