# How to create a tikz picture, with a non-infinite distance viewpoint

Hi I am trying to create a planar tikzfigure, but would like to tilt the plane. Most advice I could find gives a perspective that has the viewpoint in infinite distance.

\documentclass[final]{beamer}

\usepackage{color}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usetikzlibrary{3d}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\begin{figure}
\begin{tikzpicture}[scale=1,x={(-0.2cm,-0.4cm)}, y={(1cm,0cm)}, z={(0cm,1cm)}]
\draw(0,0)[color=magenta] circle (1);
\draw(-2,-2)[color=blue] circle (0.6);
\draw(1.5,-1.8)[color=red] circle (0.75);
\draw(-1.8,2.5)[color=green] circle (0.6);
\draw(1.5,2)[color=orange] circle (0.75);
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{figure}
\end{frame}
\end{document}


How could I make this more "star wars text" like with things closer appearing larger.

• TikZ handles text differently from graphics. See also tex.stackexchange.com/questions/84621/… – John Kormylo May 30 '16 at 17:06
• It would be easier to create a rectangular pdf with standalone and run it through a graphics editor. Perspective transformations are pretty standard. – John Kormylo May 31 '16 at 3:15
• Do you know free software that can do such a perspective transformation on a pdf? – Sandermatt May 31 '16 at 6:42
• GIMP is the one I use. – John Kormylo May 31 '16 at 14:52
