I’m a Production Designer. The ability to use ACT to place real-world cameras into a model of a set is a huge reason I began using Sketch Up. Selecting the camera focal length, image aspect ratio, height, and tilt angle are essential tools used in pre-visualization to determine how much of a set needs to be built.
The frustrum volumes are causing image clipping when looking through the camera (even when frustrum volumes are hidden).
Is this a common problem? Is there a way to fix it? Other than this, the program runs smoothly on my system.
I’ve devised a work-around for setting focal length by calculating a given camera’s Horizontal and Vertical FOV based on it’s sensor/image-plane size and entering that into the normal SU camera. And I can always DRAW the aspect ratio onto images, not so for animations. BUT it would be great if the ACT simply worked without clipping. It would save a lot of time.
I’m hoping someone out there has a solution that allows the use of the ACTs.
Thanks in advance,
