Visualize 2019 Standard.
For no apparent reason sometimes I can zoom in so far I can pass my model, other times I cant zoom in close enough to select a part. Am I missing something?
Thanks in advance.
Hopefully I'm not covering something you already know/understand, and apologies if I am.
Your viewport is actually a "camera." You can see it if you create a second one, switch to Fast mode, and move that second camera around to look at the first one.
Each camera can only zoom in so far. The "Distance/Dolly" will only go as low as 0.1, which is why you'll find yourself slowing to a crawl as you zoom in sometimes as it approaches that 0.1 before it finally stops. If you find that you're struggling to zoom in where you want to be, there's a chance that you actually have to move the camera closer. It helps if you can try to think of it as a physical camera with a lens. Even fancy lenses can only zoom in so far. So if you have to move the camera closer,
It can be a bit picky and weird especially if you've got a bit of a complicated project going on, IE trying to move around inside a room with a lot of objects, but it's just a matter of tweaking and getting a feel for it.
Once you've got your camera in the position you want it in, you can lock it and create a second camera to look around with instead. That way you can always go back to the first camera exactly as it was.
Thanks Kristina! If I had more than one camera or the problem was consistent I would say you probably had the answer, but it seems to happen randomly.
The camera never goes past it's target point. So if your target point was moved (perhaps inadvertently...I think there's a shortcut key combo that might move it but not recalling what it is), you could end up not zooming in like you previously had/expected. Generally the target point is set up to be around the center of an object. But it can be moved, and if so, you can only zoom up to that target point.
