  • You can add as many cameras as you want, and in each camera, as many references you want.
  • You can manipulate the images, change the focus of the camera to fit your reference.
  • You can add Texts and Grease Pencil per camera to add annotations.
  • Easyref is really easy to use and very useful!

PRO TIP

This tool is also really useful when you have to make modifications to your asset.

Your boss sends you corrections to make, you just have to create a camera with the addon, fit the image your boss sends you and make your modifications!
