adjusting the camera's lens length

Hi Michael. My current workload has me dealing with many long, thin objects. The viewport becomes a bit unnatural at the default camera lens length (50mm?). Is there any way to adjust it? I would prefer it to be around 35mm...

Thanks,
jonah

Hi Jonah, there is not currently any way to adjust that. I should be able to add in something for the v2 beta though.

Sorry if I am a bit dense today. Are you wanting something different than the zoom option?
Don't each of the frame settings get retained once they are set (as working)?

Thanks Michael...

Brian, the "zoom" is moving the camera's location, but it doesn't affect the amount of perspective distortion... See this screenshot from "modeler R"...

Thanks,
Just not a "detail" that I would have thought of any significance in a modelling app?

It's usually not a big deal unless you have long objects which extend deep into the background. Then the difference becomes quite noticable. Also, it's best to model with the same lens as will be used for your render, especially if you are designing from a perspective image/sketch or you're planning to composite into an existing image.

Thanks Jonah.
You are saying that, if you plan ahead visually, you can take all the fun out of trying to get things to work properly in the Rendering apps!

Is that where all my time goes???

Carrara camera goes from 6mm to 500 mm
In my photography days I had lenses for my Minoltas going from 14mm to 1000mm--but they never took 3D!!!!
