A single lens instance is assigned to the lens property of the camera in order to perform perspective projection on a scene. There are many different lenses available for different projection techniques, and these are investigated in more detail in Chapter 10. However the standard process takes the X and Y components of the scene vector and divides them in turn by the Z component to get the X and Y components of the view vector (more often referred to as the screen vector). This process is crucial to achieving perspective in a view, which is characterized by objects appearing smaller at greater distances.
It extends the native Sprite class and is displayed by instantiating the class and adding it to the display list of a Flash movie using addChild(), as you would any regular display object. For example, take a look at the first few lines of the _createView() method in the Chapter03SampleBase class. // Create view and add it to the stage _view = new View3D(); addChild(_view); For the scene and its objects to be made visible, the contents of the scene must be drawn into the view by invoking the render() method on the View3D instance.
By default a RectangleClipping object is created for the clipping property of the view, with boundary properties set to infinity. This forces the view to use the boundaries of the stage as its viewport area, as seen in the rendered output of the current base class displayed on the left in Figure 3-4. To restrict the view to a smaller area of the screen, the boundary properties of the clipping object can be reset to values that define the maximum and minimum extent of the viewport in the x and y directions, as measured from the vanishing point of the view (the (X, Y) position of the view object on the stage).
