Adjusting the Vanishing Point in 3D Space

adobe-expert.jpg FL 2.3

Vanishing Point (New!) gives you the ability to move 3D movie clips and still maintain the same visual perspective of the original. Vanishing Point controls the orientation of the z-axis of 3D movie clips on the Stage. As you move the z-axis, 3D movie clips recede towards the Vanishing Point, which you can adjust to create the appearance you want. Each Flash file has only one Vanishing Point. If you move the Vanishing Point back to the default position in center of the Stage, you can use the Reset button in the Property Inspector.

Adjust the Vanishing Point in 3D Space

  1. Select the 3D movie clip instance on the Stage that you want to change.
  2. Click the Window menu, and then click Properties to open the Property Inspector.
  3. Enter an x- and y-axis value in the Vanishing Point boxes or drag the hot text to change the value in the Property Inspector.

    As you drag the hot text, guides indicating the location of the Vanishing Point appears on the Stage.

  4. To move the Vanishing Point back to the center of the Stage, click the Reset button in the Property Inspector.
