Photographic composition guides

Photographic composition guides

Win64, English

Atelier Bump
This tool is intended to be of aid when composing shots. Easily draw common photographic grids, references, and perspective lines to help compose the perfect shot.

General Usage Instructions

How to add the Macro to a toolbar: Look for "viewport Composition guides" in the "BUMP tools" category.

Open the UI. It's structured in two sections:

The first one has toggles to enable different settings of grids. Use the HV spinners to set the subdivision for "Custom" mode.

In the second part, you will find buttons to place guides in the viewport. Use the "From Point" option to free position lines picking a base point and a second direction point. You can continue to place lines from the same base point. This can be useful to set perspective composition guides. As an idea, you can load a viewport background image, match the camera to it, and place some guides following the photo perspective to better compose the scene...
