The pop-up menu appears when you right-click on the 3D Test window. The 3D Test on view area bounds has a slightly cut menu.

Select 3D Model

 

The item opens the menu for selecting any 3D model from the VideoCAD library as a test model.

 

Select 3D Model on Layout

 

If the item is checked, you can select 3D models as test ones by clicking on the layout. Thus, you can estimate the detail of displaying 3D models by the active camera on a 2D layout.

 

Sway 3D Model

 

Sway the 3D model to a small angle from the selected position. Swaying will stop when you left-click on the window. You can also start swaying by double-clicking on the window.

 

Titles

 

Show titles in the window with the following information:

 

Name of the camera from which the image is simulated.
The straight line distance in 3D from the camera to the model in the center of the window. Horizontal and vertical distances are shown in brackets.
The pixel density at the point of the model in the center of the window.
The pixel density region where the model is located.
The angle at which the model is shown the frame.
Height of the Model and Part in % of the vertical field of view that the model occupies in the active camera frame ( for fisheye cameras FE is displayed instead of %).

 

Fix FOV size

 

Set a certain size of the field of view of the virtual test camera.

 

Real Pixels - to make the model look like on the image from the active camera in pixels without digital zoom in or out.

Real FOV height - so that the model occupies the same part of the frame height as on the image from the active camera. In this case the model resolution is not shown. Is not enabled for fisheye cameras.

FOV 1x1 meter - The height of the field of view of the test virtual camera is set to 1 meter ~ 3.3 feet.

 

The field of view size setting will be reset when zooming in / out  the model by rotating the mouse wheel.

 

Target displacement

 

You can set the offset of the target point of the 3D model from its center (vertical axis) so that the test camera does not lose its aiming point when moving the 3D model along the layout.

 

For example, the car's license plate is on the front of the 3D model, its offset from the center of the model should be equal to -0.5 times the length of the 3D car model. For a standing person, the target point is approximately at the center of the 3D model, so the offset is zero.

 

 

Take into account camera Base Height

 

If the checkbox is not checked, then the height of the test 3D model above the ground is calculated from the base height of the active camera, that is, the base height of the camera is not taken into account when determining the relative position of the active camera and the test model. You can raise and lower the 3D model relative to the base height of the camera using the parameter on the Current construction parameters panel.

 

If the checkbox is checked, then the height of the model is measured from the Zero Ground. Checking this checkbox may be required in multi-level projects.

 

Allow model inclanation

 

By default, the model is positioned vertically, you can only rotate it around the vertical axis. For a vertical model, the angle at which the model is shown in the frame is correctly modeled. Checking this box also allows you to tilt the model. For a tilted model, modeling the angle at which the model is displayed in the frame is meaningless.

 

Default window position

 

The 3D Test window can be moved and scaled arbitrarily. This menu item allows you to quickly return the window to its place.

 

Default license plate

 

The default license plate is used by default with 3D models with license plates, as well as in the 3D Test, 3D Test at the view area bounds and on test images of the Pixel density box.

To change the default license plate just click on this item.

 

In addition to the default license plate, you can assign different license plates for different 3D models with numbers using the Assign license plate button on the Current construction parameters panel. In addition, in the 3D Models window, you can add  license plates to any 3D models (even if they do not have plates), set the places and angles of rotation of license plates.
