Angle Measure

The angle measure object is displays the angle between its two control lines. You can add angle measure objects to you scenes to show information about important angles.

The properties of the angle measure object are:

  • Photorealistic rendering method defines how the geometry is rendered.
    • Ray Trace - The angle measure and its dimension text is rendered using ray tracing
    • Scanline - The measure is rendered using scanline method
    • Post Process - Rendering is done at post processing stage
    • Pseudo 3D - A special correction is applied to the geometry, to obtain a constant appearance the same way as in real-time drawing. Thickness and size of the object will appear constant, regardless of the distance from camera or the viewing angle.
  • Text Size - The size of numerical digits (per mills of the full image width), which display the angle
  • Thickness - The radius of the line used in photorealistic rendering (per mills)
  • Threshold - Threshold for measure drawing. Angle measures, which are seen in a very low angle (viewing direction almost parallel to the angle plane) should not be drawn, because the projected angle looks like a straight line. This threshold controls when clipping occurs. Value 1 draws all angles.
  • Angle - The current angle
