How to zoom
« on: June 02, 2010, 08:32:25 am »

I was wondering if there was a zoom buttom. It would be really helpful if there was or if there was a way to zoom in.

There are two ways to zoom: first just moving your camera closer to the object and second you can edit (double click on the camera) the camera FOV (field of view) --> the lower the number the more you zoom in, the higher the more you zoom out. You can set key frame on the field of view by click the button with the three dots behind it.

There is an eye button on the top left side of the screen. Click on that to enter view mode. There you can use the non-uniform scale button, shaped like a square with two arrows in it.

Zooming within the workspace is done using the View mode and scale buttons (as highlighted below)  Moving the mouse left and right zooms in and out.
