Viewport Zoom

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Eyup guys,

 

Been a very long time since I was last here to ask questions and explore the cafe, and boy has it changed!

Hope everyone is well and keeping themselves busy and having fun.

 

Now down to business!

A quick and simple question.

Is it possible to set all of the viewports so they are more 'zoomed in' than the default?

I work pretty much exclusively to my 3D printers build volume 300 x 300 x 400 mm, and I have pretty much got everything set to within those sizes by default, which means everytime I start anything from scratch I've got to zoom in. I know I can hit O which will zoom in on the object, but thought it might be easier if I could start from an already zoomed in view? 

 

Thanks in advance for the help

 

Jim

Cannot belive what I see. 🙂 I have been asking myself where have you gone and were you alright. I am very glad to see you coming back.

 

Now the think you could do is creating a scene which could be opened as default evey time and having that as starting point with all the settings setuped. I forgot how exacly this can be set, but I know it can. Hopefully Jay will now or Dan, or someone else, but I am sure this could be set to your needs.

In R20 and R21 you can set up your scene file, then in the menu Windows > Customize > Save default scene.

In previous releases you had to set up your default scene, then save that as "New.c4d" and store that file in the folder where Cinema 4D's exe was installed.

On Windows that would be (depending your install) C:\Program Files\MAXON\Cinema 4D Rxx

  • Eyup @Igor, you can believe it I'm here! I've been lurking, reading a few boards here and there but never signed in. I did sign in about a month or so back, someone was asking about a Lithophane I had created a couple of years ago. At the time I was trying to rescue the harddrive that had everything on from the last 10yrs of c4d, photoshop, 3d printing and a few other bits on. There was about 2.5TB of data just gone! To say I was crying is an understatement! Luckily I found some software for about £20 that got a little over 90% of the files back thankfully all the important ones! Everything is now floating around in a cloud!

    I did find the lithophane file the he wanted too, and sent him a link to download it. whether he did or not I don't know, I didn't hear anything from him after posting the link!

     

    Other than that, I'm not too bad. How about yourself?

     

    I forgot about seting up a scene and saving it as the default (been such a long time since a did it), I didn't know if you could do it in the settings somewhere. So thanks for that reminder, and thanks to @C4DS as well. If you can do it in R20/21 it might be time for me to upgrade. My use of C4D seems to have increased this last year or so!
