Question: How to create a "Perspective effect" as in "Live!"?

    I wonder how I can create in "Showtime 2000" an effect as the "Perspective effect" you find with "Live!" if you right click to go to the "Cue Button Settings" choose "Text" with the "Button-pressed Graphics Action" and enable the "Perspective effect".

    I want to customize it for a show and have tried to figure it out on my own. I guess I have to do it in "Showtime" somehow but none of the resources (help files, this forum here, the effect generator etc.) have a solution for my problem. I am pretty new to LD2000, so I might have overlooked something.

    Does somebody have an answer how to make this effect and to embed it into my show without having to use the "Live!" function?

    Thanks and best:

    Showtime naturally has perspective, so if you simply rotate something (for example on the Y axis) then you will see this perspective action.

    If you want more perspective action, then this can be controlled in the Perspective Effect itself.

    Both of these will need to be done using Showtimes Effect Editor.
