Perpective vs Orthographic
show user profile  donvella

this has been bugging me for awhile, I thought id post in case you guys have solved this one already. When im manually rotating between front/top/side views it switches to orthographic view, however id rather switch to perspective. Any perspective on this? :P

You cant switch automatically to perspective view with the view rotate tool, simply because the front/left/top .etc views ARE orthographic views already. It's not switching to the orthographic view, it's remaining in the orthorgraphic view, just not one of a particular 90° angle to call it a particular name like 'front'.

i hate pressing p every time though. I want it to just go straight to perspective... that was kinda what I was getting at. I swear, p, x, s, space bar, all day long. I just want to eliminate 1 of them, would make me happy.

You could get some kind of uber mouse with extra buttons & map one of the buttons to the p key.

... or send Autodesk a feature request.

... or get involved with blender & lobby to get the functionality you want included in that product.

... or get a small child or animal to press the p button for you when required.

... or change the shortcut to another letter so you don't have to press P anymore.

not a big fan as you can guess (of the view cube), I just dont like orthographic view, I cant be the only one... can I?
