ViewVertical

ViewVertical

is an option for Graphics3D and related functions which specifies what direction in scaled coordinates should be vertical in the final image.

Details

  • The default setting is ViewVertical->{0,0,1}, which specifies that the axis in your original coordinate system should end up vertical in the final image.
  • The setting for ViewVertical is given in scaled coordinates, which run from 0 to 1 across each dimension of the bounding box.
  • Only the direction of the vector specified by ViewVertical is important; its magnitude is irrelevant.
  • Changing ViewVertical has the effect of tipping a simulated camera.
  • Explicit settings for ViewMatrix override settings for ViewVertical.
