Focus Camera on Selected
« on: September 22, 2020, 03:58:44 AM »
Would be extremely useful to be able to focus the camera on the selected points in a dense cloud.  Especially for manually cleaning up large clouds.  There is absolutely no way to know if you have accidentally selected point somewhere else in a very large dense cloud.  It would also just be very helpful in just inspected areas of a large cloud to be able to easily orbit around a selection.

Hello tweezlednutball,

You can use Filter by Selection option (in Tools Menu -> Dense Cloud section) for the dense cloud points for manual editing of the large clouds: it will display in the Model view only selected points, which should make easier the navigation and the editing more convenient.

Hi Alexey,

I am aware of that feature.  I am requesting that there is a hot key to frame the camera and place the orbit control centered around what it selected.  Very much like "f" key in Maya or any other 3D package for example.

Additionally I feel that Filter by Selection and Reset Selection should have hot keys.


Thank you!

Hello tweezlednutball,

I'll see what we can do improve the navigation in Model view.

As for the hotkeys for Filter / Reset filter, you can create them via General Preferences tab -> Shortcuts - > Customize button.
