Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus.
the point to which parallel lines appear to converge in the rendering of perspective, usually on the horizon
A point toward which receding parallel lines appear to converge, located at the point where a sight line parallel to the set of lines intersects picture plane.See also: Perspective projection
the apparent point of intersection of parallel lines in perspective representations. It is located at the intersection of the picture plane and the line of sight parallel to the lines.
In perspective, a point toward which a series of parallel lines seem to converge.
The image in the plane of a photograph of the point toward which a system of parallel lines in the object space converges. Since any system of parallel lines in the object space will meet at infinity, the image of the meeting point will be formed by the ray through the perspective center and it will be parallel to the system.
