Resize/Zoom size of images seen on Multiplane Camera STAGE

Post by D.T. Nethery » 30 Nov 2015, 21:48

I am requesting an improvement in the Multiplane Camera Stage interface to make it possible to resize (zoom) the images seen in the Perspective View and Camera View of the Stage .

The problem is if a Multiplane Camera project size is very large it is impossible to view the outside edges of all the Planes and the Camera position in the Perspective view (and Camera view) on the Stage.

The screenshots below show the problem .

1.) Here is a smallish project size (dimensions are only 640 x 512) which shows all the planes and camera position in the Perspective and Camera views of the STAGE -

Image
(this is project from Contents & Examples folder called FX_Multiplan_Camera_TrackIn.tvpp )

2.) But now see what happens using a much larger project (Angkor.tvpp in the Contents & Examples folder) . This project is 10000 x 2000 and it is not possible to view the full extent all of the planes in the Perspective and Camera view windows of the Multiplane STAGE -

Image

There needs to be some way to zoom-out/resize the size of the planes in the Stage > Perspective view window (and same for Camera view window)

3.) The only way to (sort of) do this now is to Modify the project so it is much smaller. In this case I downscaled the project from 10000 x 2000 to 3600 x 720, which almost makes it possible to see all of the edges of the Planes and the camera position , but this defeats the purpose of working at a higher than usual resolution size to be able to zoom in and through the planes if necessary. (the higher resolution being necessary to retain image sharpness when zooming in though the planes) -

Image

So the request is to be able to zoom/resize the planes as viewed within the four windows of the Multiplane Stage , OR perhaps to be able to minimize/hide three of the windows and have one of the desired windows (for example, the Perspective View window , but it could be any of them) be given all the available space on the Multiplane Stage , so that very large multiplane projects can be viewed with all edges of planes visible and the camera position visible , to make it easier to work with. I hope this makes sense. I don't know if this is even possible ,but it never hurts to ask, right ?

Bump.

Revisiting this request to ask if something like this is possible with the current engine , or is this something for future development in the next engine ?

The request is for an improvement in the Multiplane Camera Stage interface to make it possible to resize (zoom) the images seen in the Perspective View and Camera View of the Stage , so the full image can be seen. (see original post above for examples)

The problem is if a Multiplane Camera project size is very large it is impossible to view the outside edges of all the Planes and the Camera position in the Perspective view (and Camera view) on the Stage. I would like to be able to zoom/resize the planes as viewed within the four windows of the Multiplane Stage , OR perhaps to be able to hide three of the windows and have one of the windows (for example, the Perspective View window , but it could be any of them) be given all the available space on the Multiplane Stage , so that very large multiplane projects can be viewed with all edges of planes visible and the camera position visible , to make it easier to work with.

Aaaah, my dear David, if we could tell you what we know... :roll:

As usual : wait (a lot) and see !

That response gives me hope . Thanks !

(the reason I bumped this up , was I just had the same question come up from a colleague I'm tutoring and I replied: "I asked about it , but I don't know if it's possible to do that in the current version . I'm going to ask again." )

You two angels! :D
You are beautiful! :D
Your dream is just great!
My dream is very similar to yours. :roll:
Convenience of the interface as in 3d programs)))) :idea:
Yes, sure. We are waiting! ))) And we pray for a new solution! :shock:
