I'm sure this has happened a lot to you ppl. You're looking at your model through difenrent angels in the perspective view (modeler) and the camera freezes up looking up only being able to rotate sideways :S can anyone help me?

It's better to use the option+left click to rotate the view, you'll never have that problem and you can rotate around more.

I'm getting the same problem and so is everyone at school?
how can you reset it without having to close down?

there is a small arrow pointing down on the upper left of the viewport next to the shading style. On the bottom of the list there is reset rotation, position, and zoom.

Are you on a PC?

Alt Clt LMB to zoom in and out.
Shift Alt LMB to pan (perspective view only Alt LMB in ortho)
Alt LMB to rotate.

Go to an empty later and hit a to reset the view.

When you get stuck just Alt. Clt. LMB to zoom out then resume rotations, zoom back in.


These are cool shorcuts to memorize because you can use them in many other plances in LW such as the graph editor.

This is in version 8.3 but 8.0 should still have the option. I would suggest upgrading as it is free for the . releases.

Ok I need to upgrade then, I was looking in the right place but there is no separate arrow
I just locked it up then and the Alt. Clt. LMB worked a treat.

Thanks a lot to you both for your help

I'll have a beer for you tonight

Think they were talking about modeler. That's why he couldn't find it. :)

Wow, my rotation in the perspective port always had a tendency to lock up too, and I never could figure out how to unstick it. Thanks for all the tips! I'll probably be using Alt+LMB from now on!
