I have to create a Ghostview of a 3D model. Does anybody know what kind of software I need?



RE: Ghostview....

For THAT image, I'd use photoshop plus the CAD software wherein the Cab resides. I'd take a pair of images from CAD, one with the full yellow cab, and one without, and I'd bring them into photoshop. Within photoshop I'd put the cab on a layer on top of the non-cab image, and I'd use the eraser tool at a fractional setting to "ghost" away the parts of the cab i wanted to see through.

RE: Ghostview....

Thank you for the fast tip!

RE: Ghostview....

I should add that the above is contingent upon being able to get a suitable-quality rendering from the CAD software in the first place - sometimes people do their photo-quality 3D rendering in a secondary piece of software.
