Hi All

I am struggling to find a simple way to apply a perspective tilt or (depth) z-axis rotation for 2D images or clips in PowerDirector.

I'd like to change a rectangular image to this shape: / \

I know the are the "blue-squares", which allow you to free-transform the content, but is there a simpler control for this?

If the PIP designer had a perspective-tilt / z-axis rotation that would be most helpful!!

I'm trying to load a large image of a map, and "tilt" it to give a perspective of depth, but I imagine the effect could be useful for many things, such as "Star Wars" style titles etc.

Cheers

Simon.

Colordirector, if you have it, has a keystone function. HP Envy Phoenix/4thGen i7-4770(4@3.4GHz~turbo>3.9)

I'm thinking Barry had PhotoDirector on his mind, it has a keystone feature. I don't believe ColorDirector does.

It would be nice to have this feature in PowerDirector, then you could animated the tilt / Keystone effect with Keyframes. If you could also set the the locate of the pivot axis, then you could create Titles or PIP objects that "fall down" or "flip" / "spin" in the perspective direction.

That would be pretty cool!

The blue squares which you reference can be key framed. They are freeform.

You can request this feature by using Rate Us & Provide Suggestions under PD's File menu. There's already a title effect called Perspective Scroll Up that does the Star Wars text intro.
