Very helpful tutorial. When running on ubuntu 8.1 I had to select the object I wanted to transform first then the transform path. The long intro was annoying and I just skipped over it. Fun for you but lame for people watching. If I wanted to see a video of someone writing Screecast 8 etc etc, then I would've clicked on that video instead. If you had very very quickly shown a video of that ~5 secs then I wouldn't have cared as much. But >1 minute? Yeah no.

Nicely done! My thanks for your effort. (I only wish it worked for me.) I've been fighting perspective problems since the install (WinXP SP1, Inkscape 0.46.) I haven't given up on it as I'm dedicated to running on "open" software and using .SVG, but this is costing me a ton of dough. I need to learn perspective. hahahaha. Realy, thanks again.

Thak you very much for the Perspective Inskcape tutorial. Very good quality, really easy to understand, very helpfull.


Though I only got it to work when selecting the object first and perspective shape second...

5. anonymous Tue, 27 May 2008 03:17

Very clear tutorial.

However, I have a problem using this tool.

I'm trying to use 3 colored rectangular objects, and when I combine the objects to get a single one, it transforms the 3 colored object I'm expecting in one colored object...

Do you know how I can get a single object with more than one color that I can use with the Perspective tool ?

Thank you in advance.

I had a problem in ubuntu linux at first...

It looked like the perspective script was looking for the python module 'numpy'.

apt-get install python-numpy

and things worked like a charm. Nice screencast. Thanks.


Without training like this, it would take a newbie "like me" forever to learn the more subtle aspects of the program.

I really appreciate your efforts to teach the masses, I can only hope to be as good as you guys one day.

Review of Inkscape Tutorial by Richard Querin - EP015 Perspective

The screencast are impecable in my view, keep'em comming.

Hi Richard. It might be time to think about developing some publicity for your videos. I have some notes in the wiki:

which could help.

The name 'ShowMeDo' is recognised on sites like Reddit and DZone so it is a good place to post an entry. Do ask a question in the Google Group:

on publicity if you'd like some pointers.

If we can increase your exposure here, we can certainly point more traffic back at your own site.

At the moment your viewership is quite low (darn!):

and I'd really like to see that increase for you!


Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for rfquerin-heathenx
