Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a Physical Camera to the scene, part of V-Ray 3.0 for 3ds Max Essential Training.
- As has pretty much always been the case…with the standard 3ds Max Camera,…we actually have a couple of options available to us…when it comes time to create…or add a new physical camera to our scenes.…In terms of what we tend to think…of as a typical creation method in Max,…we could come to the Create and Camera sections…of the command panel and then,…after choosing the Physical option,…simply left-click and drag in order…to add a new camera to the scene.…Before I actually go ahead and do that, though,…I just want to make certain that our camera…is going to be at least somewhat visible once it is created.…
To help with that, I am going to, first of all,…put a check in the Auto Grid box…and then left-click and drag in the scene to create.…With a right-click, of course, taking us out of Create mode.…To get a proper look at the camera,…let's left-click to select the line…that connects the camera icon to its target,…which is a quick way, in 3ds Max,…of selecting both, which, of course,…now gives me the ability to pull the camera up in the view…
