3. Import an fSpy project file

Once the add-on is installed and activated, fSpy project files can be imported by selecting fSpy from the Import menu. This will create a camera with the same name as the imported project file.

Import menu

Import settings

At the bottom left in the importer's file browser, there is a panel with import settings.

Import settings

Update existing import (if any) - If checked, any previously created camera with a name matching the project filename will be updated. If unchecked, a new camera will be created on each import.

Import background image - If checked, the image from the fSpy project file will be used as the background image for the Blender camera.

Support for Blender versions older than 2.80

Starting with version 1.0.3, the addon is only compatible with Blender 2.80 and up. If you are using an older Blender version, please download version 1.0.2 of the add-on.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
