I compute the 3D transformation from the plane of a side to the plane of the view, and then set the 2D submatrix of this transformation matrix to the "transform" atribute of the clone. In this way, the parallel projection (a view from very far point) can be done, not the central projection from a near point. >What's the plugin I need - my browser can't auto update plugins >automatically > because of enterprise firewall controls.
