Now after we have looked at all the most generic forms of navigating the 3d viewport, we will be covering a classic way.
When it comes to navigating 3d space, you do not often see the option for hotkey navigation.

Hey, guys. In today's video, we're gonna be looking at how to navigate your three D View port using hot keys, and this will be for favorite camp software. 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 watch problem solving videos, and we also have daily updates. Otherwise, we head into the programme here. Now, most of these, uh, navigation type settings we can navigate with, uh, P Board or the keyboard with hotties, but unfortunately, not all of them. So that is something to keep in mind that we we can only do key ones. And it may be important ones if there is other ways to go about it, which I did not cover. Please comment or leave a little, uh, comments somewhere, and we can try to cover in a future video. Now the ones we're gonna be covering is basic rotation and panning. This is your two most common ones. Like I knew a guy back in the day when we saw you should do a lot of old school gaming like diablo and stuff like that. And, uh, this guy was really good with his keyboard. I think he's Yeah. In any case, he would navigate his whole computer. Just keyboard, No mouse. And we couldn't keep up to him. So, um, I know, uh, this day and age is a bit tricky to just do that. Back then it was still possible. Maybe if you're a coda, you can still do most of the things because they saw cater for hot keys throughout all systems or most systems. And the more refined something is, the more they make sure they add hot keys. So I'm a big advocate of using hot keys because it is really, really useful. And it saves a lot of time, but to cover my mouth, it's maybe a bit far from me. But in any case, so yeah, I know from my personal experience, that can be very handy if you learn hot keys. So now when it comes to the navigating this three d space and there's like I said, the two we're gonna be covering rotation and panning. So, first of all rotation, you can simply go to your keyboard arrow keys. So they kept it nice and simple. And then, um uh, you can rotate it with them, but something to keep in mind. It works basically in a reverse manner. So if if you you've played it may be a first person shooter or something and you understand that, what a reverse mouse does, then, Um yeah, it kind of has that feeling the same way with some tablets. You, if you want to go down, you would scroll with your thumb or your finger. Let's say upwards, then you're going downwards. So for some people, it's a bit of it, uh, that concerts bit hard to understand at first, but once you get the hang of it, you understand, it's quite natural. So now what happens in that case, if I want to rotate this thing the top away from me, and then I need to use the upkeep. So as you can see, that impressed him up key and they rotate it away. But I wanted towards me or the bottom away. I have to rotate with the bottom. Then likewise, if I wanna rotate the left side away from me, I have to press on the left. If I want to rotate the right side away. I press on the right, so as you can see and keep it in, you can do nice fast movements and things are nice. And precisely if you wanted that now, the next one we're gonna be looking at is the actual panning. So what you can do is you use exactly the same keys, but you're gonna be holding in your control key on your keyboard. So if we hold that in and then now we can pan now it kind of makes more sense. If you want to pan listening up, you press up, you're gonna pan it down and pants down. So this one again works more closer to the legacy way of using it where this is again. Not so much like the new modern way. So once again, just to recap so we can use the arrow keys for rotating and then we can use control with the arrow keys for panning this. You can also use your numpad um, the arrow keys on them Or, as you might know, eight for up to four down, 44 left and six ft right. So if I keep controlling and, uh up and down, but keep in mind if it doesn't work. Make sure your pressure num lock button. It's normally various on keyboards, but look for the one says Num Lock. And then once you've done that, the keys should be working. There we go. We've got our rotation, you see, and the panning as well. So the num lock button needs to be pressed if it's not working, if you're going to be using that, because some people use dedicated num Lock's, which is handy. But yeah, otherwise, that is it on navigating your three D work space with keyboards. So we've got an arrow keys and combined with control if you want to do more actions on panning. But yeah, otherwise, in the meanwhile, if we head here to softwaretraining.co.za you guys will notice you've got a variety of different Softwares we do cover, and you can also isolate your search on the top of right. If you do not, however, find the training videos you're looking forward, just simply go here requesting training video, filling them in a form, and then we'll do our best to try and make that for you. But otherwise, thank you guys for watching and cheers
