Overview

This setting controls whether ray-traced images are rendered with or without perspective. Note that this can be in conflict with the setting "orthoscopic"; by default, images are rendered with the same orthoscopic setting as the viewport, unless "ray_orthoscopic" is deliberately set otherwise.

Settings

set ray_orthoscopic, off   # render ray-traced images with perspective (2-4x SLOWER)
set ray_orthoscopic, on    # render ray-traced images without perspective

Examples
