Image will not wrap correctly in vanishing point

I am trying to wrap an image around a 3 dimensional box, but the image cuts off half way through the top plane. The portion of the image that should be on the bottom left plane appears at the top of the left plane. This occurs after I create my vanishing point planes and paste my image into the vanishing point work area. The image is pasted with no problems but as soon as I move it over my 3-D image to wrap it, this problem occurs.

    The 3-D Box is a graphic from adobe illustator, and the image is in another layer, yes. The reason I need to use vanishing point to wrap this image around the box is that I am taking a course in graphic design and this is how my instructors want me to accomplish this task. I've included a link to the images in flickr. The following is the link.

    Hi there surc6,
    Hopefully I can help out - I just want to get it straight in my head what your trying to do.
    I'm guessing that the 3d box is a pre-made graphic or image of some kind. on another layer you have an image that you are wanting to paste onto the box.
    Because I'm having trouble visualising what you are trying to accomplish you'll have to excuse my naive question. Why not chop the image into the 3 parts that will be visible then use the warp or distort transforms to adjust their shape. Vanishing point is normally used for repeating a pattern in perspective so I'm unsure how you are using it to paste in an image.
    If you can upload an example to a free image site for me to view, this would be of help.

    All the best

Hi again,
Ok, I finally got it licked and why you're having the problems and it's fairly simple. It's all based on 2 things but most of all, the order in which you create your planes or grids.

Because the main part of the image is on the front face that is what you want as your Parent face so get that as accurate as you can to start off with. Hold the 'x' key to temp zoom in and get the position as correct as you can.
Once you've created you're primary ctrl-click(cmd-click on mac) the mid top point and pull it out then the same for the mid left point.
Now if it still has the problem when you paste in the image and drag it onto the primary face then undo the paste. We need to adjust the secondary planes. Select the top plane and in the angle parameter (which should show 270°) change it to 269°. Then change the left planes angle to 89°. Try it now and it should work fine. Then put it back to 270° and 90° again.

Let me know how you get on.

All the best

Remove the valve and wrap some Teflon tape around the threads of the valve fitting (about two wraps). Reinstall the valve and the leaking should stop. Make sure the valve is snugged down good.

What are the examples of line,plane,point


Well I'm not sure why you are asking but these are general terms. These terms are used in geometry.
When printers are printer graphics they are using so called primitives to print graphic objects. The best example that comes to mind is when you use CAD software to print drawings. This is a very involved subject. One could quite easily devote a large book to discussing it.

As to the specifics of the objects line, plane and point. Well you know what a point is correct?
A point is a one dimensional geometric object. If you simply place the tip of a ballpoint pen on a piece of paper and create a dot, that is a point.

You know what a line is correct? A line is a two dimensional geometric object. If you place a straight object on a piece of paper, like say a book. And draw with your ball point pen along it's edge you create a line.

A plane may not be as obvious. A plane is a three dimensional geometric object. Imagine a piece of cardboard floating in the air in front of you. This is a plane.

A plane represented on a two dimensional object, like a plane drawn on a piece of paper (two dimensional) creates either a rectangle or a parallelogram.

If this does not answer your question you will have to be more specific.

Diference between yd and cubic yd.

A yard is 1 dimensional so just a straight line.
A cubic yard is 3 dimensional so imagine a box with all sides being 1 yard long, the volume of this box is a cubic yard.

I have a problem with squirrels chewing holes in the hose from the the tank to the burner. this has happened 3 times now. Is there any way to stop this?

I have used aluminum gutter guard and cut it the size I needed and wrap it around the hose. It's easy to cut and easy to wrap around whatever you need to. It's sold a places like lowes etc.I've used it on electrical wiring harness's on my tractor and it stopped them.

When battery is inserted, the internal fuse blows. I have tried changing it to no avail. Battery may have been inserted backwards at one point,

janaire why not wrap the fuse in aluminum foil? Then the errant part can be identified by the faint red glow. DO NOT bypass your fuse or overfuse the device!!!

Cut extension cord

This happens a lot with circular saws too.

You can strip off the insulation from each side of the cut and connect the wires (be sure to match colors!) and wrap the whole assembly in electrical tape, but you really are best off replacing the cord.

If you do repair it, tie a knot in the cord so there's no stress on your repair job when you tug on the cord.

I just did some reading and found out the name of the knot you want is actually the "Euro death-knot" (best example is in this picture)

Tie it with the cut ends just like the ropes in the picture, then do your splice job on the ends of the wires.

I have a Z4000 label printer at my work that im having a few problems with. At first it simply would not printer the last 1/8th of the label image, no matter how high I moved the image in the settings....

For the issue with your ribbons take the spool and wrap a section of it about half way around the pulling portion and use some duct tape to place it on it securely. then take the same portion and rotate it a few times as to wrap the ribbon around it at least three to four times making sure it is snug all the while. that should remedy the spooling tension issue. Sorry I can't help with the printing issue. try updating the driver and if that doesn't work try replacing the printing head as it may be defective now. The Z4000 are old school, ours just broke down as well and we called tech support, the guy laughed when he heard we had one in use and thought I was joking... :(

What is vanishing point.How i use this on a picture .please give me the briefly idea about it.

Hi there,

Vanishing point is a variation of the Motion Blur Filter. When selected, it alters the image by blurring/stretching it toward a single 'Vanishing' point that you select. It is used to give the illusion of speed.

Tip: When working with image filters, make a copy of your image to fall back on by using Save As. The Undo option will back out the effects of the filters too. When you get the desired effect, Save it again. A good rule of thumb, how much work are you willing to redo? If you go past that point, make a copy.

Photoshop is one of the best.
The quickest way to learn it is hands on, to play with it.
Open an image, try each filter. Undo it and try the next.
You will like the Stylize Filters.

Some filters will open an option window allowing you to adjust the attributes of that particular filter.

Photoshop is an amazing tool. Enjoy it.
