"Y-up" trackball rotation (orbit)?
« on: October 09, 2018, 11:08:46 PM »
Is there a way to limit view rotation / orbiting such that the Y axis is always vertical with respect to the screen?

I'm not sure if the OP meant "Z-up" instead????

This something that would be amazingly helpful for navigating around all landscapes.
Like in Google Earth, Sketchfab, etc.
You can't turn a mountain on its side.  Just move around it, over it, etc.

Having a Z-Up Lock option would be great.

This navigation mode Z-UP is already available as "terrain mode" under model/navigation mode, but to my taste is too much inconsistent with object navigation, and hurts my brain every time I use it... once again I can't understand Agisoft. At least they have corrected at some point the wrong tilt direction.
Regards

By the way Y-UP... omg, why? it must be an OP mistake

Accupixel have released a transform helper - which includes View mode:

Not sure if it helps?

Sadly not for me, i only have Metashape Standard.

I've looked and looked, and can't find any 'Terrain mode'.
