finding cameras...
show user profile  roseman5285
So, I have several cameras in my scene that I placed about a week or so ago. For some reason I cannot see them in the model. I used to be able to, I un-hid everything but they do not show up.

I did have an issue sometimes in the past that they would not show up easily in 3d views, but I cannot see them in top, sides, or ortho views.

Any ideas?

Are they on a hidden layer, frozen, do they show up in the select dialog? Are they really there?

I can select them through the list and can cycle through them using C but I cannot seem to be able to see the little camera icon.

*edit* dropped in a new camera and they all reappeared...some days this software just likes to screw with me I swear...

Thanks for the swift response Nik!

did you have it set to not display cameras under Display->hide by category?

On a similar note - I appear to have this happening in my viewports with my Reference planes. The REF_Layer will be frozen (naturally) and unhidden, but the planes won't show up in the viewport. I have to manually hide the layer, and then unhide it again for them to reappear and later they will just disappear by themselves again. It's 3 planes, each with 1 polygon. Front, Side and Back views - all with backface cull turned on.

Is there some sort of preference Max has for only rendering your selected object in the viewport? Or a way to increase/prioritise what it should display? Pretty damn annoying, but bearable.
