Camera Visibility Limit w/xrefs
« on: September 16, 2022, 05:09:04 PM »
Itoo Masters,

When x-refing scenes with FP, with the Camera "limit to visibility" checked for those FP objects, does that feature transfer over to the master scene or do I have to have a camera in that FP scene for FP to know where to clip? I hope that makes sense? I know it says "if empty the camera is selected automatically", but wonder if that is only in that file.

Thanks in advance
Murph

Hi Murph,

I’m afraid, that there are several restrictions to any object referenced within XRef Scene(s) and as far as I know, there's currently no way how to bypass this limitation, therefore the recommendable workflow would be to use XRef Object(s) for used Custom Object(s) and leave FP objects in the "master scene". A time ago we published the "Tips for Mastering Large Scale Environments" tutorial - you might find it interesting and useful.

Best regards,
