#### exists and is an alternate of .

Specially in OpenGL Orthogonal term is used while considering 2D view whereas Perspective is used in 3D.
In Orthogonal view an image or object would act as in 2D environment. And in Perspective view an image or object would act in 3D environment.

# What is difference between parallel and perspective projection?

perspective projection is defined by straight rays of projection drawn from object to the centre of projection and image is drawn where these rays untersect with the viewplane

# Difference between sectional drawing and orthogonal drawing?

the difrrence is that one starts with an s and the other starts with an o also they are spelt diffrently so does this answer your question Kane

# What is the point at which orthogonal lines disappear in linear perspective?

This is called the "vanishing point".

# The difference between perspective projection and weak perspective projection?

Weak perspective projection is an approximation of the perspective projection. In fact, it is a scaled orthographic projection: first, the object is projected onto the image p

# What is difference between parallel and perspective projection in Computer Graphics?

Parallel projection does not produces realistic views whereas perspective projection produces realistic view. in parallel projection lines of projection are parallel whereas

# Difference between orthogonal and perpendicular lines?

Orthogonal and perpendicular are essentially the same thing: When two lines, planes, etc. intersect at a right angle, or 90 degrees, they are orthogonal/perpendicular. Ortho

# What is the difference between orthogonal and orthonormal vectors?

All vectors that are perpendicular (their dot product is zero) are orthogonal vectors. Orthonormal vectors are orthogonal unit vectors. Vectors are only orthonormal if they
