Epic Games has released Carapace, a neat little free tool for generating perspective grids.
Carapace enables users to create one, two and three-point perspective grids with simple clicking and dragging. The grids, which can support up to nine vanishing points, can then be pasted into Photoshop for use as guides.
The tool can also be used to create grids for existing reference images, by drawing trace lines on screen.
A pet project
Carapace was created by Senior Environment Artist Warren Marshall as part of the company’s ‘Epic Friday’ sessions. The monthly events enable artists to take a break from their regular jobs to work on pet projects.
Carapace is available now, for Windows only. You’ll need the .NET 4.0 framework installed to use it.
