Tape Measure Tool

The tape measure tool consists is on the tracking tab and consists of a red “beam” and a red X and works like a laser tape measure or a traditional roll out tape measure.  This tool measures how far objects in the scene are from the virtual camera’s sensor.  The Previzion operator can use it in three distinct ways ways.

  • Toggle the tape measure on and hit the “Measure” button to read how far away an object in the scene.
  • Enter a value in centimeters and the red X will go to that distance.
  • Use the scroll wheel over the distance read out to “push” the tape measure out to any distance.

Note: The tape measure tool does not get sent out the SDI video feeds, it is only for the Previzion operator.
