Issue with orbit tool/model dissapearing

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

So I imported a 3DS file (exported from SketchUp) into C4D & then the orbit tool was constrained in an odd way.  Also I could only find the model by using the cameras, however when I had to delete the cameras I couldnt' find the model.  It was lost in the abyss!  Is there an easy way to locate a model?

 

Anyone have any fixes/advice for this?

 

Thanks :D

Select the object in the Object Manager and press S.

 

The orbit issue is because the object's axis is far away from the actual object. With camera navigation set to Object, it uses the axis point. SketchUp, when exporting certain formats, places the axis of all objects at 0,0.

 

To fix this issue, select all of the objects and run the Center Axis To command.

    Maybe your object is too small? Try scaling it up, and btw, if you select your object in the object manager and prees "O" on the keyboard, it will frame the object in the viewport...

    Thanks I will give this a go
