Indeed, this is how would one make *from scratch* a perspective drawing, is not easy but is doable. But the original poster asked for something else: an automatic way to make the transformation with Inkscape from a flat drawing to a perspective one. Kind of like the perspective tool in GIMP. Unfortunately, we don't have this feature (yet), I just linked to other requests for the same thing to show there is interest. -- nicu ```

Except, Skew isn't what he wants at all. Skew, Rotation, Translation are all Affine Transforms, which is what the Transform dialog offers. What he/we/whomever want is the ability to perform Perspective Transforms. The math isn't that much more complicated, it just isn't implemented, and no offense intended, but there are some real scary bits in the Inkscape code base (as there are in all).

Anyone (including me) can create a perfect pentagram (all you need is staight edge a compass and remember your math class), but many would find it difficult to put that perfect pentagram on a corn flake box sitting katty wampus to the viewer. But since you can draw, you can draw the Mona Lisa. But you might have dificulty putting that Mona Lisa on a corn flake box if it is sitting katy wampus to the viewer. All I am really asking for is the transformation. I can draw all the perspective lines I need to determine the transformation on an invisible layer that I erase later. Let me have a rectangle, and let me say that the four corners of the rectangle now map to these four courners of a rombus, let the computer figure out how to move the other points. This is the kind of calculation computers were designed to do. =46rom there, I can figure out the rest. --=20 Paul Elliott 1(512)837-1096 pelliott@...

Ok. You don't draw. But can you program? (If I had to guess I'd say you are a C++ kinda guy.) I spent some time trying to write an extension to do perspective transforms a while back and I failed. The result of that experiment is in the Effects menu (labeled either "Summer's Night" or "Envelope"). The envelope effect is not a true perspective distortion. If you would be interested in helping me with the math (I've still got the code for my two or three other failed attempts around somewhere), maybe we could get something clunky worked out in python. If you are really interested I had embarked upon a different more betterer path and under the guidance of bbyak I had planned to develop some sort of live effects mechanism in Inkscape proper (C++). This would be really really cool. Would you like to give me a hand with this effort? Aaron Spike ```

Unfortunately, Inkscape does not yet have any code from that. The closest thing we have is the "Envelope" extension - it puts objects into an arbitrary four-sided envelope but without perspective distortions. If anyone feels up to the task, we would really appreciate a perspective-enabled extension. You can use the Envelope as the starting point. -- bulia byak Inkscape.

Some comments seem to say it is not the true solution. I will have to test it.

An issue you'll have with perspective transforms is that they don't generally commute with Bezier curves. IOW, the perspective transform of a Bezier curve obtained from some controls points in NOT in general the same as the Bezier curve obtained from the perspective transforms of the initial control points. The simplest way out of this problem is to flatten the paths before transformation. hth, bb ```

 Re: [Inkscape-user] irregular gradients From: John Cliff - 2006-10-21 22:09 ```not sure I'd agree with that statement about it being easier and more flexible to use blur, as I've just played with blur/clipping for a good 15 minutes and cant get it to look like that. This technique also has the added benefit of allowing you to be non uniform in the distance your gradient is running across. you also cant fake a square gradient with blur, which you can with this.
