Orthographic view - remembering location

  • Hello.

    Is there a way to save Orthographic view´s with the same reliability as Perspective views?


    I was really looking forward to the Orthographic view function added in 2.7.0.

    I´ve worked up a workflow where I put a rendered top view underneath a cad pdf in indesign to make illustration plans. Basically just updating links when altered.

    However in 2.7 Enscape does not seem remember the "camera position" for the Orthographic view.

    If I zoom in to select a region in orthographic view, save the view. Then zoom in a little for another layout, and save that. Enscape will not remember the position, it will use the last used position.

    Same thing happens if I change from Orthographic view to Perspective and then back to Orthographic view. Enscape 2.7 has no recollection of the area I wished to display, instead zooms out to default position. I therefore have to zoom in to a similar region, with very low precision compared to the image I want to replace, then having to rescale it in indesign, therefor slowing down the workflow.



    Kind regards.

    Anders

  • Thank you very much for your feedback and welcome to our forum! You are right, the corresponding camera positions are not being saved accordingly when Orthographic is enabled - I'm gonna get together with our devs to see why this is the case, perhaps we decided to do this because of technical reasons, but I'm letting your know as soon as possible.

  • Thanks Anders for raising this issue, I've been having the same problem and i thought it was just me missing something.

    Thanks Demian for looking into this problem. I hope it can be solved or improved soon.

    Cheers!:thumbsup:

  • I have been using Field of View as 0 with perspective view in order to render orthographic views with Enscape. Remembers the camera location just fine. I haven't tried the new orthographic view with 2.7, though. Perhaps you can also keep using Field of View as 0?

    Or is there another benefit of using 2.7 orthographic render?

    Can you set FOV to 0?

    I think you can't go down lower than 10.
