  • Page 16: Three-dimensional Transformation Operations, Basic 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 the device control block (trackball) to carry out three-dimensional transformations.

  • Page 17

    Transforming an image in three-dimensional coordinate space 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 18

    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.

    image, z-axis parameters increase as you rotate counterclockwise, and decrease as you rotate clockwise. To reduce the rate of change of the parameters (fine mode) Carry out the trackball or Z-ring operations while holding down the [SRC] or [TRGT] button. To restrict the change in the transformation to a specific axis, press the [X], [Y], or [Z] button, tuning it on.

  • Page 20: Three-dimensional Parameter Display

    Three-Dimensional Parameter Display You can check the values of the three-dimensional parameters in the DME menu. Displaying the three-dimensional parameters in the DME menu In the menu control block, select the top menu selection button [DME]. The DME menu appears. The status area shows the three-dimensional parameters currently controlled by the device control block.

  • Page 21: Entering Three-dimensional Parameter Values

    Example three-dimensional parameter details Entering Three-Dimensional Parameter Values In addition to setting three-dimensional parameter values with the trackball and Z-ring, you can enter them directly from the numeric keypad control block. Entering three-dimensional parameter values In the device control block, press the [X], [Y], or [Z] button, turning it on. The numeric keypad control block enters a mode in which you can enter parameters for the selected axis.

  • Page 22: Graphics Display

    To enter difference values You can enter difference values by pressing the [+/–] button, entering the difference from the current value, and pressing the [TRIM] button to confirm. The [+/–] button toggles between “+” (plus) and “–” (minus) each time it is pressed.

  • Page 23

    The DME menu appears. Select VF6 ‘Input/Output’ and HF4 ‘Graphic.’ The Graphic menu appears. Turn [Graphic] on. The system enters graphics display mode, enabling graphics to be displayed in the monitor screen. Turn on the buttons of the graphics you want to show. To show axes: Turn [Axis] on.

  • Page 24: Canceling Virtual Images

    Graphics are displayed on the device connected to the monitor output connector. Note Output to the Monitor Out connector is not supported on the MVE-8000. When the MKE-8021A is installed in the MVE-8000A to provide an SDI interface or when the MVE-9000 is used, it is possible to output graphics to the Monitor Out connector.
