# What is the value of perspective in number ?

Hi!
I wanna know, the value of perspective in exact number.
Like how much is the angular convergence between two points

A. Camera ----------------------------------------------------------- Building B.

In the above how much would building converge, and what would be the size, when viewed at point A.

Thanks

Your question is much too vague. Your object has to have some size in order to subtend an angle. If building B has height h, and the distance from camera A is x, then the angle between the base of B and top of B, as seen from camera A, is arctan(h/x). Is that what you are asking?

Thanks,
So, you mean it would change as per the distance between eye(camera) and the view(building) ?

But what is the answer, if i replace the building with horizon ? How would i know the distance of horizon from my eye ?

Nevermind.. got it here :

Thanks.
