When it comes to Zooming, this is one of those tools that you use more often then most other.
In my opinion there should have been a separate tool function for the Zooming feature.

other guys. In today's video, we're gonna be looking at how to navigate your three d view port using mouse navigation. But before that, let's have a quick intro first, so today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za z day. We make sure an easy to watch problem solving videos, and we also have daily updates. Otherwise, back to the tutorial here. So now, in the previous videos, we covered your basic navigation functions and buttons here. Then we looked at your three d widget here on the top. Right now, we're gonna be looking at your mouse, how to navigate it with your mouse and some shortcut keys or hot keys. Like I mentioned in the previous video. Most of these are. These two have their own limitations, where the mouse one in many ways to me is the most rounded, even though you cannot fit your zoom. Or should I say go home or fit, zoom or use your magnifying glass. You can pretty much do all of these operations just about without having to use any of these other buttons, which is very convenient because it's a more natural workflow and in my opinion. So there's also if you come from any previous, uh, three D Softwares, then this should come quite natural. Obviously, the combination of keys might vary from software to software, but you're very quickly pick up what works and what doesn't. So now the first one we're gonna look at today is zooming. We've briefly covered it already in a previous video, and that is when you simply use your mouse wheel and you well, forward and backwards. So this will be zooming in, zooming out. Now it does get a bit tricky when you're zooming out. It's a bit like the first time you reverse a car and you think if you turn right, you're gonna go one way and you end up getting the opposite because now you're looking backwards. So if you play around with this just with a little bit of practise, you will quickly get the idea of it. I can just show you, for instance, let's say I've zoomed into this corner then that's what I want to zoom more towards that side when I zoom out so I don't want to zoom back to the centre, Then I actually wanna go the opposite side. So if I'm on the right, then I zoom out. It's gonna go to the left. If I am on the left, it's gonna go to the right so you can see that you would imagine. Okay, I want to zoom out this way and you zoom and you get even more this way, and then you just it gets frustrating because, um, it's like, No, I want to go back to the centre, but just don't want to go there. So then what ends up happening is you have to grab a pan to try panel, and you're thinking this thing is useless. So then, like I said, So what you wanna do? Let's say you're zoomed in here and you want to go back to the centre, take your mouth far to the left. You zoom it so pretty much when you're zooming out, it's the opposite of where your mouth is, and when you're zooming in, it zooms into where your mouse is. So if I want to zoom to that point, I can zoom there now. In many ways, if you were centred into the canvas, you can just keep your mouth there zoom out and we'll go to the original point, so it's also a little tip. It's good to remember that makes you navigating a bit easier. But if for some reason you have to zoom out this way more, maybe you've got another shape that you want to work on. Instead of having to, um, pan or something, you can always just go in the opposite direction and zoom there and zoom back. So it's a nice little trick you zooming out opposite, zooming in. Go there where you wanna go now I would definitely recommend practise this a bit, so create a new sheet, put a shape and then you see if you can. First of all, I would recommend first seeing if you can do the basic. So go to the centre, try zoom to the middle of your shape and then zoom out again in the middle of your shape just to see if you can get that basic down. Then grab a point on it. Zoom towards it. Leave your mouth there, zoom out so you just get in the habit of how to go back to the centre of your design. So it's a very good practise to keep your navigation smooth. And then lastly, what you can do is you zoom in at one point and then you try Hop around two different shapes if you have by zooming in towards it. And then when you zoom out your opposite to where you want to go just to get used to the concept of, uh, zooming. So I would recommend do that, get a bit lost inside. And then you try with your zooming to get back to the centre office in a real design, you so you won't use that. Um, but to get competent with your zooming, it is a great way to do it. So once again, just use your mouse wheel zooming forward, zooming backwards and then opposite direction when zooming out to go to the direction You actually want to go to a bit confusing, but like I said, with some practise, you'll get used to it. But yeah, that is it. In our first zoom. If we head here to softwaretraining.co.za you guys will notice. We've got a variety of different Softwares were to cover, and you can also isolate your surgery on the top of right. If you do not, however, find the training videos you're looking forward to simply go. Yeah, I requested training video filling the uniform, and then we'll do our best to try and make that for you. But otherwise thanks, guys, for watching and cheers.
