3 Strange Newbie Problems (W/Photos)


Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone!

 

Excuse me if I'm doing something wrong for the location of this question as I'm new here. I just began using Cinema 4D and have run into a few weird problems.

 

1. Everything was working fine at first. I must have pressed a weird button. Now when I click my main screen to make a selection a window pops up in the screen of the same shot. I can make my selection in that smaller screen but it's really annoying. Heres what it looks like

2. When I open a new project and add a cube for some reason I'm really close to the cube. It looks like this:

3. I have a weird white circle that follows my curser around. Not sure why. It looks like this:

(Sorry for the bad quality it's a photo of my monitor. The white circle is to the right of my curser)

 

 

I've done a ton of googling and haven't seen anyone referencing these issues

 

 

Im using:

 

R21.115

Mac0s Sierra 10.12.6

 

 

Any help would be great! Thanks

1. Seems you are showing two views. Try middle clicking in viewport or go panel/arrangement/single view from viewport menu

2. Go view/frame default from viewport menu

3. That is live selection tool

 

If nothing helps, hit ctrl+e to open preferences, open preferences folder by clicking bottom left button, Close Cinema and delete the contents of that folder. Then startup Cinema again

Thank you so much for sending me some help.

 

1. I do middle click to go to the 4 view window then single click to get back to the first. BUT, this window in window pops up any time I click in the window. Meaning I can't make a selection. Every time I click I get this smaller window. I can make a selection in the smaller window sometimes but it's hard do see anything in there. I just want one window!

 

2. When I click Frame Default it takes me to the super close up view of the bottom left corner of the cube!

 

3. Why is the live selection tool so far away from my mouse? When I click the click happens 5 inches to the right in the circle not where my mouse is!

 

I just uninstalled and reinstall the program again and all the same problems are here.

Create simple scene ( just with cube) and post it here...

If you reinstall c4d, with it´s default settings you simply cann´t get this behaviour. Did you make some changes in preferences?

btw, did you play with film offset? In your case where object is pasted in center of grid, but outside of camera looks like film offset. Try to check this settings...
