Display option for "clipping"?

Post by Spwilka »


I'm trying to work in a pointcloud where I need to get up close to certain object in the scene. Every time I do though, there is a "clipping" of the image in the area closest to the camera, and I can see through the object (ex. wall ) to whats on the opposite side.

Is there any display option that allows me to adjust that view? Thanks!

Hi, I think you need to enable EDL lighting (in GL filter toolbar) and increase point size by clicking + few times on left up corner of your viewport.

Otherwise I understand you are using 'perspective' projection, and you are referring to the 'near clipping distance'. To change that virtual clipping plane, you can either use the 'Camera options' dialog, or use the shortcut 'CTRL + mouse wheel'.
