View Full Version : I want the camera to ALWAYS be visible.

Is there a setting in LW that keeps the camera ALWAYS visible in the viewports while you're editing one of the other objects in the scene?
I know this is probably a newbie question, but I'd rather ask than search endlessly....

thanks in advance for your help and cooperation!

best,

Fred

I don't believe so. The crude workaround would be to model one and parent it to the real camera.

If you don't want to use a model, you can substitute this with a null w/ item shape.

Also, if that doesn't answer your question, are you talking about having a split viewport? You can press D, set it to a split layout and then set one of those split viewports to "Camera".

fred - maybe I don't understand. My camera seems to always be visible by default.... (I have an object selected).

Make sure there's a little dot in the eye column in the scene editor.
