Camera Viewport Enhancements

Question

There are two issues with viewports linked to cameras. The first is the limit of 196mm (35mm equivalent) of zoom (12.45 degree field). This is an artificially low limit that does not allow the previewing of long glass on video cameras (33X or up). The second is that in the OIP it would be great if you could change which camera a viewport is linked to. When you select the viewport on the sheet layer it should say Camera: <name> and you should be able to point it to a different camera.

Agreed! This has been a roadblock for me a couple of times.

Yep! Please upvote this topic: 

 

Cameras in general are imperative to workflows within the entertainment industry, so I really wish the camera functions in VW would get some much-needed love.
