3D Camera View - How to make a wider frame?

Recommended Posts

Hi there! 

Wondering how to make a wider camera view in Chief Architect 12? Is there a way to capture more of a room / move the camera back specifically in bathrooms and small areas?

A few different options:

  • Field Of View setting (turn it up)
  • Clip Surfaces Within setting (turn it up)
  • Perspective Crop Mode (use with caution as it will permanently affect that particular view, locking it to that specific perspective)
  • Temporarily changing walls to be invisible and just backing the camera up
  • Backing the camera up and just using the Delete Surface tool to temporarily remove unwanted obstructions
  • Putting walls and other objects onto unique layers and temporarily turning those layers off (so you can back camera up)

You might also have a play with the "Hide Camera

Facing Exterior Walls" feature. Depending on where

the small area is (near an exterior wall) you can back

off the camera.

Been using Chief for years and never knew about that setting. I think you might have just changed my life :lol: Thanks!
