Viewer keeps entering model
on Dec 10, 2015 at 6:25:39 pm

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to work on a model that was imported as an OBJ created via a CAD program. Whenever I try and navigate around the model or move in close, I suddenly find myself entering INTO the model itself. Its not as if I am passing into the model when I move into to its actual physical boundaries, but rather whenever I move up to some arbitrary field surrounding it.

For what its worth, the model is currently hollow.

Any idea of how I can fix this? I have attached a still.

near clipping on the camera (in Details) is what it looks like

That's what I thought was well. However, I turned off all clipping and it is still there.

Figured it out!

Turns out there is also a 'View Clipping' setting in the 'Project Settings'. Set it to Tiny and back to work.

Thanks for the help, Brian.

Probably be a good idea to scale that model up. When I import models I always try to remember to run the View>Frame Default command so I can see how big the model is in relation to Cinema's normal scale. Super small or super big models can cause camera navigation and other problems.
