Wacko Camera

Zipped Blend File: http://www.geocities.com/cheesesquid/wacko_camera.zip

Can anyone tell me why the camera in my blend file did this? It happed to me before. How can I fix this? What caused it to happen in the first place?

All of my project’s graphics were deleted and replaced with Suzanne, so the problem is really a little larger than it may originally seem. The only solusion I found would be by creating a new blend file then appending all the data from the original … which will take a long time…

You set another object as the camera.

Select the camera and press Control + Keypad 0.

Thanks! I have no idea how I messed it up, but I’m glad you were able to fix it. Is there anything anywhere indicating if there is an object set as the camera? Or are you just suppose to know?

Hit 7, select camera and hit Ctrl-Numpad-0

The telltale is the missing Camera quadrant around the dotted rectangles which means an object other than the camera is the camera.


Or the camera you’re looking through is in a different layer.

alt+numpad 0 will take you back to the camera object

[at which point you probably want to select it and press control+numpad 0 to make it the real camera]
