Is there any way to set Rhino so whatever I’ve selected is the center of orbit?
I click that icon with the three egg yolks like a thousand times a day.
I’d like Rhino to just assume that if I have something selected, that should be the center of my orbit.
My guess is this is probably not too hard - after all, it is implemented for the Gumball, and I expect it is about the same thing - bounding box center - for selected objects. I do not see any requests for this - nor do I recall (but that does not mean much) any. It seems a reasonable wish list item.
This is not exactly what you asked for, but one ‘hidden’ orbit feature is you can use Ctrl+Shift+RMB-drag to orbit around cursor (if placed over any object) vs orbiting around target/viewcenter with just RMB…
@Jarek interesting… every day I learn something “new” although I work with this software since 4.0 … but how does it work? Is it just “shifting” the old camera position or does it really use something like Z-buffer information?
My understanding is it picks a point on object under cursor, closest to camera, and orbits the view around it, target distance should stay the same.
I think it would be neat if Rhino offered an option when this behavior is a default RMB-drag.
