Transform a view without affecting the camera.
- [Instructor] Sometimes you'll need to zoom in…on a particular area in a camera frame…without losing the camera's position,…rotation, and field of view parameters.…To accomplish this, what you need is 2D Pan and Zoom,…which will be our final view port…tip and trick for the course.…This feature works with a camera,…and you can see I've got a camera loaded in this panel.…This is Camera 004.…I've also got Safe Frames enabled for this camera.…
We'll talk more about that later,…but Safe Frames crops the view port…to the aspect ratio of the camera,…and anything in this gray area is not going to render.…Let's turn on 2D Pan and Zoom.…That's done from the View Port menu…in the Plus Sign menu, 2D Pan Zoom mode.…When I activate 2D Pan Zoom mode,…the area outside the frame suddenly becomes visible.…We also now have a new entry in the menu here…that says 2D Pan Zoom is at 100%,…and the icon and the view port controls…in the lower right corner is activated.…
You can enter 2D Pan Zoom…from this fly-out as well if you wish.…To manipulate the view port,…
