  • Hi there,

    is there a plugin or something I could get in order to be able to zoom where I 'look' like in other 3D programs?

    Thanks a lot,

    Kasia

  • Hello RichArt,

    I downloaded NaviCAM and I am trying to play with it but I think I'm doing something wrong because it doesn't make any difference :(

    Could you maybe advice me how can I make use of it?

    Gosh, sorry about that, I'm so silly :(

    Hey,just put it in Plugin folder. There is no too much to see. Just run Cinema and thats it. If you "install" plugin correctly you should have it in your "Plugin" bar on top. From there select NaviCam and play with setup according to your workflow(speed). :)

    Great plugin,btw. smile.gif

  • I've done it, but I can't see any difference.

    I run C4d, I've locked the plugin to my bar so it's visible.

    I have 4 new buttons with blue camera.

    No matter which one I click on and what I adjust - there is no difference apart from the speed.

    How do you make use of it??

    :(

    Assign Navicam:Center, Navicam:Zoom In, and Navicam:Zoom Out to a mouse click or a keyboard shortcut. When one is triggered, the view should be centered on whatever object you've clicked on the viewport.

    e.g. You assigned Navicam:Zoom In to the middle mouse button. If you click on an object on your scene using the middle mouse button, it should place the point you clicked on in the middle of the screen, zoom in, and set the view rotation to that point.

    Since you're just clicking the buttons outside the viewport you're not triggering the plugin...

  • Hey rustEdge,

    that makes sense!

    This is why I can't see any difference!

    Can you tell me how do I assign these shortcuts?

    Thanks a lot!

    Go to Window>Layout>Command Manager (Shift+F12). It's where you can access all the commands/objects/tools loaded on your machine. Type the name of the command you're looking for in the Name Filter box, then apply the shortcut you want on the item.
