Hi, I’m a hobbyist and created a model of a home. I’m having trouble getting rid of the zoom clipping, where objects in the foreground are not shown.
In particular, I like to add a few scenes looking out of a window, and when I get within 1-2 meter of the window, the window already disappears.
Now, this already seems like a difficult scene, as I want a relative high field of view (seeing the surrounding area when looking out of the window), ideally 60 degrees, but 40 degrees is acceptable.
Strangely, I got a good scene the other day, and despite that I have a screenshot with the scene that I liked, I can’t reproduce it anymore. It seems that the camera clipping is already happening at 2 meter distance instead of 1 meter distance.
What was changed is that I moved my model, as I found that my previous geo-location was somehow off by a few hundred meters. Also, I added more of the surrounding area, increasing the size (length x width) of my model.
Is there a way to change or disable the zoom clipping?
If not, could someone explain why a change of a location influence the camera clipping plane? On https://help.sketchup.com/en/article/36261, one of the suggestions is to move the model closer to the origin. What I did is move the origin of the top-level in the hierarchy, but this did not work.
Are there any other suggestions how to deal with the camera clipping plane? Is there a explanation when exactly this clipping happens, and at what distance? I assumed that it would only depend on the FOV, but given the suggestions at the above help-article, it seems that other factors, like the size of the model also are in play.
