see attached two such tasks presented in simplified form. the rasters are to fit the rhino drawn shapes. Both are real work regards shape.
I did by the way try for scale on the circular task but ended up needing a bit more, and longed for pshops raster tool.
Now that Pascal seems to be the distort tool at first glance, it was acting like it, it gave me a fit on the circle, but then it failed on the triangle, why did it kink it ?
As such its going to harm internal features independent of what is happening to the shape. Pshop on that would have seen a straight line still.
I realise rhino is not pshop, but there is sometimes a need to fit a raster photo of something taken at an oblique angle, or a plan that has got distorted through many copies of copies, to the shape it should be before I start work over it extracting the data it gives. The simple need of shape adjustment of the raster is required.
attaching the rasters additional to the 3dm file incase the 3dm doesnt embed them.

Mitch…your post crept in before this was sent,…now I think you might have there something to better photoshop, have the Pshoppers using Rhino
as you see ij my 3dm, the control points kinked that line, yet i didnt see the engine kink. We need to try a few basic shapes to see what else survives and what doesnt.
