Not seeing 3d camera icon and FOV
on Feb 7, 2013 at 8:20:52 pm

Working with an AE scene exported from LightWave 11.5.

There's a 3D camera in the composition, but I can't see the camera icon or FOV indicate in the comp window, when looking thru Custom view 1 (or 2 or 3).

Is there a toggle somewhere for Camera icons? "Show Layer Controls" is not it in this case.

Thanks.

Eric

By FOV do you mean Camera Wireframes?

Yes. "FOV"= field of view.

What are you View Options settings? (Screenshot of that dialog box is probably the easiest way to answer.)

EVERYTHING in View Options is ON.

False alarm/pilot error/idiot at the controls:

Since this was a imported scene, the camera, at 70 meters in the 3d app, was 'wayyyyyyyyyyy offscreen in the orthogonal view.

Kind of a pain: can I just parent EVERYthing to a null, scale it, and get it all into the (nominal) orthographic view?

[Eric Chard] "I hate 3D in AE: its 2D origins really show thru."

I don't think you're alone.

I'm trying to think of a proper metaphor.
Would it be like trying to learn to enjoy a snack of roasted locusts?
Being marooned on a desert island with all the fishing gear you need... but you hate fish?
Being locked in a dairy when you're lactose intolerant?

Aaah, none of 'em are hitting the nail on the head.
