camera view
show user profile  zeefusion
I always struggle getting the correct FOV and view from a camera within Max. I have created a room which is 5m x 5m, placed a camera right at the front looking towards the back. If I were stood 5 metres away from a back wall I would get a pretty good view of the whole room.

But in max when I try and re-create this the view is very up close to the back wall, so I change the FOV, I thought the human eye FOV is around 40? this still doesnt look correct. I have to change the FOV to extreme values such as 115 but then the view becomes very distorted.

Is there settings for the correct human eye view, as if I were standing in the room?

Human is about 60. It will look wrong though. This is something I've also struggled with.

the thing is how do you get a camera lens to achieve this??

50mm lens is the one that matches the closest to the human eye perspective.. but it will give you a narrower FOV of course.. I thought once of modelling a glass lens with the shape of the human eye/pupil and place it in front of a camera in max...
