Technique for creating the illusion of three-dimensional space on a two-dimensional surface through the apparent recession of parallel lines to a vanishing point.

In linear perspective, the point on the horizon line at which lines or edges that are parallel appear to converge.

In a perspective diagram, that point on the horizon where parallel lines converge.

Horizon where parallel lines meet.

in scientific perspective, the place where all the converging orthogonals meet (the vanishing point is usually on the horizon line).

A point in perspective drawing where parallel lines appear to intersect the ground line or horizon.

the point beyond which something disappears or ceases to exist

the appearance of a point on the horizon at which parallel lines converge

a point in a perspective drawing where parallel lines seem to converge into

in linear perspective, the point or points on which all construction lines converge. In one and two point perspective, the vanishing points fall on the horizon line. In perspectival systems involving three or more vanishing points, the v.p's may fall off the horizon line. In a 3 point perspective rendering of a tall building, for example, the third point is often high above the horizon line.

The point on the horizon or eye level line where all receding parallel lines converge

In linear perspective, a point at an infinate distance on the Horizon Line at which any two or more lines that represent parallel lines will converge. This principle is based on an optical illusion best illustrated by railroad tracks that appear to converge on the Horizon.

() In perspective drawing, the point at which receding axes converge.

In linear perspective, the point on the horizon line where parallel lines appear to converge.

in perspective, the point on the horizon in the distance where two lines seem to converge and visibility ends.

The point in a perspective drawing where horizontal lines converge.

A point on the horizon where parallel lines appear to converge in linear perspective.

1. The point in the distance where parallel lines, running from the viewer to the horizon, appear to converge. 2. In Adobe Photoshop's Photomerge perspective composition, it is the image that appears to be the furthest away.

In a perspective drawing, the point at which parallel lines moving away from the viewer seem to converge. It is located on the horizon line.

Is the point at which parallel lines, viewed obliquely, appear to converge in the distance.

In perspective drawing, a point at which receding lines seem to converge.

(n) An imaginary point in a perspective drawing or sketch, often on the horizon line, where all projection lines of one dimension of the object converge.

When a 3D scene is captured as a 2D image, distance objects are smallers that nearby ones and objects that are equal distance apart, but further away are rendered as closer together. This creates the appearance that distance objects are shrinking and converging to a single point in the image. This point is called the vanishing point.

A marker that appears when you select an extrusion or an object to which perspective has been added. With an extrusion, the vanishing point marker indicates the depth (parallel extrusion) or the point at which the extruded surfaces would meet if extended (perspective extrusion). With the Perspective effect, the marker indicates the point, or points, at which the nonparallel lines would meet. In both cases, the vanishing point is indicated by an X.

A vanishing point is a point in a perspective drawing to which parallel lines appear to converge. The number and placement of the vanishing points determines which perspective technique is being used.

Vanishing Point is a 1997 (see 1997 in music) album by Primal Scream. It is named after and inspired by the 1971 film Vanishing Point, especially the song "Kowalski", which is meant to be an alternative soundtrack to the movie. Vanishing Point shows inspiration from dub, ambient music, dance, krautrock and other genres, as well as individual bands such as MotÃ¶rhead, Can, and The Stooges.
