Auto-Clipping to Viewport Crop:
If any part of a Mask object extends out of the viewport’s crop area, it will clip itself to only display the portion within the crop area.
This new object allows shadows and shading to be placed over the rendered image. This helps eliminate the need to export to an image editor for adding simple shadows. The shadow object can be set to different opacity settings and has up to 9 levels of edge softness. These objects (similar to the Mask object) auto-clip any portion of themselves that extend past the viewport’s crop.
Quickly and accurately align a 3D view to a photograph! Vectorworks has some great 3D view manipulation tools, but when trying to align a 3D model to align with a photo, the process can be time consuming (and frustrating) at best. Trying to adjust the view while keeping the model in the correct place on the photo can take hours of trial & error. And after all the trial and error, the process can still leave some question about the accuracy of the view. This is where Camera Match comes in. The Camera Match process involves placing a 3D reference point in your model, then placing a Camera Match object in a viewport's annotation space. The 3D reference point gives Camera Match the location and orientation of the model. The Camera Match object locates the reference point on the photo and establishes vanishing points by aligning control lines along elements in the photo.
