in linear perspective, the point or points on which all construction lines converge. In one and two point perspective, the vanishing points fall on the horizon line. In perspectival systems involving three or more vanishing points, the v.p's may fall off the horizon line. In a 3 point perspective rendering of a tall building, for example, the third point is often high above the horizon line.
In linear perspective, a point at an infinate distance on the Horizon Line at which any two or more lines that represent parallel lines will converge. This principle is based on an optical illusion best illustrated by railroad tracks that appear to converge on the Horizon.
1. The point in the distance where parallel lines, running from the viewer to the horizon, appear to converge. 2. In Adobe Photoshop's Photomerge perspective composition, it is the image that appears to be the furthest away.
When a 3D scene is captured as a 2D image, distance objects are smallers that nearby ones and objects that are equal distance apart, but further away are rendered as closer together. This creates the appearance that distance objects are shrinking and converging to a single point in the image. This point is called the vanishing point.
A marker that appears when you select an extrusion or an object to which perspective has been added. With an extrusion, the vanishing point marker indicates the depth (parallel extrusion) or the point at which the extruded surfaces would meet if extended (perspective extrusion). With the Perspective effect, the marker indicates the point, or points, at which the nonparallel lines would meet. In both cases, the vanishing point is indicated by an X.
Vanishing Point is a 1997 (see 1997 in music) album by Primal Scream. It is named after and inspired by the 1971 film Vanishing Point, especially the song "Kowalski", which is meant to be an alternative soundtrack to the movie. Vanishing Point shows inspiration from dub, ambient music, dance, krautrock and other genres, as well as individual bands such as MotÃ¶rhead, Can, and The Stooges.
Vanishing Point is the title of a science fiction anthology series that ran on CBC Radio (see Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) from 1984 until 1986, and then under a varying array of sub-titles until 1990 or so.
Vanishing Point is an alternate reality game, and is a promotional event for Windows Vista hosted by Microsoft in which contestants solve puzzles and enter a sweepstakes for some prizes given out by Microsoft and other game sponsors, such as AMD and Dell.
