  • Page 13: Three-dimensional Transformation Operations

    Three-Dimensional Transformation Operations Use the device control block to carry out three-dimensional DME transformations. For details of three-dimensional DME coordinate space, see “Three- Dimensional Transformations” in Chapter 1 (Volume 1). Basic Operations This section explains how to use a trackball-type device control block to carry out three-dimensional transformations.

  • Page 14

    Transforming an image in three-dimensional coordinate space Use the following procedure. With the region selection buttons, select the target channel of the operation. You can press several of the buttons simultaneously to select several channels. In this case, the button that you pressed first lights in green, while buttons pressed subsequently light in amber.

  • Page 15

    You can magnify and shrink the image with the Z-ring. Rotate counterclockwise to shrink, and clockwise to magnify. To change the aspect ratio of the image: With the [SRC] button selected in step 2, press the [ASP PERS] button, turning it on. You can change the aspect ratio independently on the x- and y-axes with the trackball, and change it simultaneously on both the x- and y- axes with the Z-ring.

  • Page 16

    • To change on the z-axis, rotate the Z-ring. Parameter values increase as you rotate clockwise, and decrease as you rotate counterclockwise. However, when you have pressed the [LOC XYZ] button to move the image, z-axis parameters increase as you rotate counterclockwise, and decrease as you rotate clockwise.
