Remarks

This property does not affect how the object is rendered.

This property is only applied to child elements that have a transform specified.

The object is the projection plane for the child elements.

This property specifies that each child is rendered relative to the specified perspective, whereas the perspective function of the transform property specifies that each child is rendered from the same perspective.

The following images illustrate the difference between this property and the perspective function of the transform property.
