Camera Views

Can you view in an orthographic mode as well as the standard perspective?

For example

This has been requested and has not been implemented yet (as far as I know ... have not loaded version 8.2) A work around you may be aware of is to set your camera to a longer focal length, which only minimizes the perspective effect.

Hey there...

I am using 8.2.. I can split the screen view and clink between the two views and see orthographic in one view and perspective in the other.. Is this what you where wanting to achieve..??

Destiny is right, its possible to change the application view to orthographic by toggling the "Grid" icon in the toolbar (see image below).

A rendering camera cannot be set to orthographic at this time, so the work around is to create a new camera for rendering and reduce the field of view. (I indicated increasing focal length previously, but Simlab uses field of view instead of focal length)

Yes, that's it.

Thank-you both.
