This might be a dumb question but here goes.
Wasn't there an option in Maya Live (or older versions of Maya) where you can match an Image Plane photo using perspective lines and Nulls so that you can derive a match in camera angles and distant?
Im pretty sure this came from Alias Sketch! (yes Im that old) and formZ as well as Power Animator.
Maybe its my age getting creeping up that I forget this :P
I know I could try MatchMove but Im sure there was an option for this years ago for static images.
