Create camera based on settings in 3D Studio Max


Recommended Posts

Unfortunately right now the exporter only exports freeCamera but you just have to execute this code once the scene is loaded:


You can then control the view with cam.orthoLeft/orthoRight/orthoBottom and orthoTop


My code:

var camera = new BABYLON.FreeCamera("camera1", new BABYLON.Vector3(0, 5, -10), scene);camera.setTarget(new BABYLON.Vector3.Zero());camera.attachControl(canvas, false);camera.mode = BABYLON.Camera.ORTHOGRAPHIC_CAMERA;camera.orthoLeft = 5;camera.orthoRight = 5;camera.orthoTop = 5;camera.orthoBottom = 5;

The view is too far whatever I do. I must say I have never worked with 3D before, and I have few to no clues on what to do.

If you use the search bar, there is an example of what you could have find: http://www.html5gamedevs.com/topic/8712-ortho-camera/?hl=ortholeft#entry51822


I found that answer. Than I had to deduct that somehow is a zoom for orthographic view and also I have to multiply with the ratio of the canvas.

And again, no answer on why exactly is there a orthoLeft etc.
