how to assign to groups rather than Xforms in Solaris Jan. 24, 2020, 3:59 a.m.

I was having trouble the other day getting groups from OBJ space to LOP space, so I tried to get what jsmack was talking about.

For how I like to work, I think this approach is going to be better than trying to work with ‘geo’ groups.

Here's an example.

getting the correct aspect ratio in solaris Jan. 23, 2020, 12:08 p.m.

Thought I would comment on this thread since it's related and maybe get a bit of insight.

I do lots of work of importing 2d images and creating attributes from maps.

Direct grid to the images resolution, and then work on some image wrangling for the end result.

When I go do a set up in LOPs, I can set up Karma with the ‘same’ resolution, i.e. if the original image was 1280 x 720, I can use those same values in Karma.

However with a camera (in Lops), set to Orthographic projection, I always have to increase the aspect ratio by order of 10, e.g.
The above ratio of 1280 x 720 has to be changed to 12800 x 7200.

And this doesn't match the grid system of viewport.(LOPs cameras being 10x smaller than).

It's not really an issue at all which is why I haven't put in an RFE,(would be nice though)

but is there a reason why the LOP cameras Horizontal and Vertical Aperatures couldn't be set to work at 10x the current values for each component?
