Camera view distance question

Recommended Posts

  • Topic Author
  • I often work with relatively small objects about the size of a 250mm cube. When I switch to one of the top, bottom, or side views, then switch back to perspective, the view automatically adjusts to fit the entire scene. So then I have to zoom all the way back in. Once in a while this isn't a big deal, but over and over, it's really annoying. 

    Any way to change that?

    Im fairly sure my viewports stay where I left them, and didn't know they could behave any other way !

    In preferences, navigation, do you have 'synchronize views' ticked ?

    I havent got Sync Orthographic views ticked, but even if it was my perspective view port stays just where I left it even if looking through a camera added to the scene or not.

    OK, well as we can't replicate the problem, then I suspect MAXON are the only people who can help...

    Use a camera.

  • I am using cameras. For setting up the renders. But for tumbling around the viewport to arrange lighting and objects, I'm not. Should I be? Is that what you are suggesting?

    Thats correct you dont need to be using a camera to doing your general tasks, and even if you did, it should still not alter the perspective view when switching between other view ports unless your using the same camera.  Can you do a quick screen recording so we can see it happen?

  • Screen recording attached. Sorry for the low resolution. It was the only way I could get it small enough to attach.

    I've made a section for the different view options in the "V" menu. I'm coming from modo so I'm used to having the different views mapped to a pie menu. I've tried to recreate that. 

    Thanks for the help everyone!
