On occasions when it is REALLY NECESSARY, I will still open up 2.8 to render in Cycles because Cycles rendering in 2.8 is slightly faster than 2.79b.
When doing exterior Arch work, I tend to do a lot of Photo matching and my secret weapon has always been this amazing Add-on that’s just so easy and straight to the point, all done inside Blender with no need for external program and also without having to deal with the grease pencil:
I just created a 2.5 minutes video to show how to use this add on that I have been using for quite a while now:
PLEASE correct me if I am wrong, I believe that…this cannot be done in Blender 2.8, forget about the temporary notion that this add-on is 2.79b only for now, the main focus here is a change of a core idea in Blender’s way of showing background images in version 2.8.
In version 2.8, a background image have to be assign to a camera, not as some arbitrary background image that isn’t connected to any camera as in version 2.79b, I believe (I want to be wrong !) this limit possibilities like this add-on and many others like it to exist.
Please correct me if I am wrong, as I am having a really difficult time transiting to 2.8.
As of right now I am still too dependent on the following add-on in 2.79b to move on to 2.8, you could say…I am stuck…
