Isometric projection
« on: September 11, 2006, 02:30:53 pm »
Is it possible to use any kind of isometric projection (or axonometric projection) in JPCT, that means a non perspective view of an object? I don't need a perfect isometric view but it should allmost look like it. I know that this could be done in reality by setting the camera position practical to infinity and use a very high zoom factor, but I don't see how to get this in JPCT.

Thanks for any help

You may move the camera farer away from the object and play around with the camera's fov to get this pseudo-isometric view. You may run into trouble with z-buffer accuracy when moving out too far though.
