Small Prob - Can't See Camera
on Nov 4, 2008 at 12:22:25 am

Hi

Somehow the yellow diagram of the camera has become invisible. It was there before, and now it's not. I've tried searching the manual, web, and this forum, but nothing comes up.

Can someone please tell me how to make my camera visible again?

It works, and is active and all that. I just can't see the yellow line drawing of the camera.

Thanks!

To turn on the camera, click view>3D Overlays>3D Scene Icons. If that does not bring back your icons, you may need to delete the Motion preferences.

Hi Alan

Thanks for responding.

I just tried your suggestion and it's not working. I did it while Motion was closed, and when I opened it up it wrote a new "com.apple.motion.plist" file. Then I tried deleting it with a project open, no luck. I also tried opening a old project that I knew I could see the cameras on, and cameras were visible. I've toggled on/off all 3D overlays, and I'm stumped. The fact that I could see cameras on an old project gives me hope.

Do you have any other ideas?

HI Chad - I have the same problem and came across your question when trying to google for an answer. Did you get this figured out?

Hi Stephen

I never did figure out why id disappeared. It did just show up around 2-3 weeks later. Try opening an old proj, and see if it's there. Or maybe a blank project. All I know it came back one day when I started a new project.

Hi Chad,

I just figured it out 2 minutes ago. on the top right of your screen, there are 5 boxes - 1 for zoom level, 1 for resolution, 1 for channels, 1 for view and overlay options and one for view layouts. in the "view and overlay options" pull-down menu, my "3D Scene Icon's" selection was unchecked. Once I checked it ON, then the camera came into view. (tied to upload an image of this selection)

It was driving me crazy. All is good.

Steven.
