Testing out the new orthographic camera code.

This and section planes will be in the next 3.4.x builds pretty soon!

does this mean we may eventually have the ability to render parallel projection views via sketchup?

Hi DCM,
You will be able to select an orthographic camera either in the exporter, or in the Indigo GUI.

While you're at it would it be possible to do an Environment Camera such as:

+1 pixie ^^

Available soon, that's great.

How about FOV ? Such cameras don't have a focusing plane, there would be no blur I assume.

Yes it's possible to have a sphere camera with DOF! They do not have a focusing plane but a focusing sphere

Though I do support the request for latlong renders I was talking about orthographic cameras ! Their aperture is the whole film, and shoot parallel rays so those do not have a notion of focus I assumed.

Still that's one good thing to know about latlong's. StompinTom requested such things long, long ago.

Hi CTZn,
As Etienne told me once, there is such a thing as a real orthographic lens, which does have a focal plane and focus blur - a telecentric lens:

edit: However, I have implemented the orthographic camera in Indigo as you described, as opposed to a telecentric lens.
