View Full Version : Camera and clipping the object

I am trying to do a drive through along a road. I want the camera to fix on a null so that when I drive by the camera holds the null in view. I have all that down fine, but I can't get the camera to be at the right height without it clipping out the lower part of the ground. I've tried adjusting the zoom factor and the grid size, but it still happens. Any help with this.

"d" fixed near clip distance...

I normally just set the near clip down as far as it will go without the grid disappearing in the back, which is like one or two "notches" from 0.

Please excuse my ignorance, but what is "d"?

"d" is a key on the keyboard that brings up the display options in layout...

Yeah, I wasn't thinking. I hit the keystroke all the time and didn't connect it.
Yes I've changed that to the lowest number, 0.0394".
Same results.

Then your probably below the ground...
