    Can't zoom into model...

    Hi guys,

    Have a problem when i zoom into my models in layout.
    i have a character model and a large plane as the ground. When i try and zoom in onto my character it gets cut off and i can't get close to it.
    Is it the depth buffer or field of view or something. I have heard about it but can't seem to change the settings anywhere. Why doesn't it just let me zoom in infinitely like modeller.

    Thanks

    Try to activate and change "Fixed near clip dist."

    Preferences->Display->Fixed near clip dist.

    also make sure your object is at the center of your workspace.

    To add to what's already been said, I strongly recommend hotkeying "center view on current item" (if it's not already a default hotkey in LW). Definitely a frequent-use function in Lightwave.

    two more tips: When loading objects, if you load a small object and set the camera, and then load a larger object (much larger) the camera might move to another location to show the large object.
    depending on the size of the object you want to focus you have to set the grid size to something more adequate.
