This page will discuss various settings and techniques of the tools found on the View tab. I will present an image and then explain how the effect was achieved. So, let's take the first example.
White Effect Imagery in 5 clicks.
1. In the View tab, set the Visual Style to Wireframe visible edges only.
2. Turn All Shadows On.
3. Set the Lighting Style to Plain Room.
4. Turn on Perspective Viewing.
Faux shadowed blueprint effect
The first step is to set the background color.
- Tools tab > Options panel > click Application Options.
- In the Application Options dialog box, click the Colors tab. Select Deep Blue color scheme. Set background to Gradient if not already set.
- Click Apply, click Close.
Next, change the View settings as follows:
- In the View tab > Appearance panel > change to the Two Lights lighting style if it is not in use.
- Click Shadows, this automatically turns on All Shadows.
- Click Reflections.
- Use the Visual Style dropdown to change to Wireframe with Visible Edges Only.
- Click the Orthographic button and select Perspective for View projection.
Set Depth Dimming, but do so from the Document Settings and not the Application Options, so you don't affect all of the windows.
- In the Tools tab > Options > click Document Settings.
- On the Standard tab > Display Appearance > click Settings...
- At the upper right, check the box next to Depth Dimming.
- Click OK to accept the setting change.
- Click OK to accept the document changes.
That should get you something close to what you see in the first image.
Check back, I'll do another one soon.
