Read what links have been supplied, they are about what lens mimicks an eye, I am happy with 45mm , internet says go view>Viewport properties, place camera, so try and zoom into my dummy human height, trouble is, having set it to perspective, one small scroll click takes me whizzing past the eye, I normally work in parallel as one can zoom carefully and precisely, never use perspective, disallows close in zooming. Also whilst struggling with this, I find perspective wont even letb me zoom in enough to get anywhere near my camera location, zoom ceases to go any further, so I am forced to use parallel.
Fist attempt I succeed, then place target, so I choose a point on the far off building,
enter 45mm and click ok, the scene is sitting at an angle, though I see the expected amount of the building above the landscape.
any movement of mouse to try and level up the scene sees view lost , I am now above the railings and seeing more than I should be able to see , lost the scene, obviously no mouse movement of scene must happen !
How does one get the view to be level ? I find a right click viewport supplied rotate view so carefully move mouse to rotate sort of level. Can there not be a default that sets camera level with cplane ?
try again, just cant zoom at all now to the ‘eye’. perspective viewport up to its normal antics !
I read of hitting F6 to toggle camera on and off, hit F6 , command line says camera object is hidden, I thought that was to show it !!!???
hit F6 again, cant see anything different in scene, what camera ?
What am I looking for ?
I cant see anything, after a while I zoom right out and start to see a massive long cone, ending at 0,0 which is miles away from the terrain, as terrain came in at its geographical location, not the Scilly Isles (0,0 for UK)
I try to get hold of the end but my subject is now a pinprick.
close file and reopen it, hit F6 cant see anything, zoom out, still nothing.
I just wish to be able to pick a point for the lens tip, pic target, type a focal length value, have the scene horizontal !, be able maybe to pan left to right as a head would pan.
and take a picture !
I try again with view>ViewportProperties, manage to set camera, then target, then choose parallel and type 45mm, hit ok, and unlike the first result, I am now seeing a scene where the camera is hundreds of metres behind the chosen camera point !
Try again ,same result.
I youtube camera and there is just one bad video, 45mins of natter, ( no direct to the point in a hurry this is how its done ) , and its all fuzzy, there has to be something better and refined than a classroom recording and fuzz, it doesnt take 45mins to set a camera up.
