Field of View in 3D Editor and 3D Documents

Anonymous

Is it possible to change the FOV in the 3d Editor and in 3d Documents?

How about in the modeler perspective view?

3D window settings does have the camera angle or viewing cone setting (or whatever it is called in english). If you save a 3D view it will retain the FOV you have set. Maybe this is this what you were after.

Is this "cone" similar to field of view? It seems to generate a lot of distortion, in that it stretches everything out.

What else could it do but stretch it out?

Not sure what you mean. Are you saying increased Field of View will distort the image?

I want to have more field of view, but if I go further back, I move out of the room;)

These are your only options. Move back or widen the field of view, which distorts the image.

If you choose the first option perhaps you can temporarily move a wall or create a polygonal marquee in such a way that it allows you view what you need from the outside. You may also combine that with viewing items outside the marquee as set in 'Filter and Cut Elements in 3D'.

You might get better results by checking the
Use two-point perspective option in the Perspective Settings dialog box.

You should add a Signature to your Profile (click the Profile button near the top of this page) with your ArchiCAD version and operating system (see mine for an example) for more accurate help in this forum.

This is some limitation in ArchiCAD right, cause normal rendering software allows to change the field of view?

You're saying " or widen the field of view, which distorts the image". The view cone can't be a field of view, as I pointed to in my article, cause field of view should not distort the image. There must be some other terminology to explain this "view cone" thing. In photography terms, what is this called?

What is preventing you from moving your camera backwards? If anything, I'd say your article runs counter to your argument. There is no cropping when rendering. "You are wanting a 14mm FoV from a 50mm lense. You are standing to close".
Some people might argue that the focal length impacts distortion indirectly, because a wider lens requires one to get closer to the subject to keep the same framing on the subject. That’s definitely true...

Personal taste, but I don't get the urge to show a client 3D renders of their bathroom or other small spaces, when you wouldn't be able to snap a photograph showing the whole thing either. Do some interior elevations of those rooms.

If it is a space like a living room, you should be able to get a decently framed shot off, as long as your goal isn't to somehow show the whole room. Again, good luck doing that with a photo too.

70 degree angle still is somewhat ok to use for interior shots, but that is pushing it already with the distortion.
