Zoom out of a 3D field
on Sep 14, 2015 at 2:28:53 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm sorry if I'm repeating a question, but I can't find it anywhere online. I would like to zoom out of the 3d field in my preview window. Yes, I'm having a hard time explaining, very sorry for that.

In a tutorial I'm watching a guy has this scroll thing:


What he does is very simply zoom in and out on layers in 3d with this thing, but I can't find this scroll anywhere.

How do you adjust zoom in preview? Or do you actually need to resize all layers every time you want to see a detail in 3d (such as aligning objects)?

Thank you very much and sorry for the confused explanation!

Ajda

Hit "c" on your keyboard until you see that icon. It is the Track Z Camera tool that will move your camera in z space. Of course, you have to have a camera in your composition for it to work.

Thank you, Daniel! This is truly helpful!

However, the guy in the tutorial did not make one, so I am wondering if there's another trick somewhere. :)

Select "Custom view" instead of "Active Camera" below the viewport.

Thanks, but I did that. Still not out enough.

Once you've switched the view, use the camera zoom tool. You can zoom out as far as you want.
