Camera on floor plan

Recommended Posts

I have a floor plan & am trying to place a camera to see the 3D view.  When the camera tab open it is blank with no image, any ideas?

Never heard of that before. The only thing that comes to mind is that you have a very low quality video card.

Have you tried closing down and rebooting the system?

One other possibility is that all the layers are turned off in 3D view.

What version of Chief are you using?

Another possibility as that your camera is not facing your model or is above or below it.

Camera is definitely facing the house, and is on the right level.  Was thinking of a computer upgrade so may have to look into video card.  Layers seem to be right in 3D view.  Using X7, never had this problem in previous version.

Are you on a laptop? are you using a dedicated video card? or on board? unfortunately only guesses without a plan.

NO the video card is not dedicated and yes on laptop. thinking this is probably the case, what are minimum requirements I should look for on upgrade?

A proper nvidia card at least 600 series  with min 2Gb on board .

Check out my signature and also others to see what is working.

I have found that X7 will not run without a dedicated card, my laptop works reasonably well more than adequate for field work.

Was this the first time you tried the 3D on this computer or has it worked before? The reason for me asking is I have two video cards on my computer and if its not set to the right one I have the same problem.
