I'm using a default 24mm camera setting and don't know what I did but before turning on raytracing in global rendering and applying car paint to a text surface my model is suddenly being clipped by the camera.

Prior to whatever I did I was able to zoom right up on an individual letter. What did I do and how do I correct this?

Thanks

Left and right bracket keys are your friend in regards to clipping, plus the clip nears distance setting in the preference panel.

How cool is that? Thank you.

Yeah I usually set the near clip distance to something ridiculously small like 1mm and the bounding box threshold to something incredibly high every time I set up Layout for the first time.

I'll try it. The weird thing is I was getting a good extreme close up initially and then I created a new camera and things got weird. Must have been default camera settings.

Thanks,
