Editing an ACT Camera's Properties

To edit the properties of an ACT camera while in camera view mode, follow these steps:

  1. Context-click and select Edit Camera. The Camera Properties dialog box appears.
  2. Modify properties as needed. See the upcoming list for details about your options.
  3. Click OK.

You can also edit an ACT camera's properties outside of camera view mode. Here's how it's done:

  1. Move the cursor over the camera model.
  2. Context-click and select Edit Camera. The Camera Properties dialog box appears.
  3. Modify properties as needed. See the upcoming list for details about your options.
  4. Click OK.
In the Camera Properties dialog box, you can control the following options for your ACT cameras:
  • Name: Type descriptive name for your camera, which appears within the Advanced Camera Tools submenus in SketchUp.
  • Height: Set the camera's height relative to the ground.
  • Tilt: Control the camera's forward or backward tilt.
  • Roll: Set the camera's left or right swivel in degrees. The swivel is similar to a person turning their head.
  • Focal Length: This setting controls the camera's zoom value.
  • Aspect Ratio: Set the width and height of the film or sensor as a decimal number. The numbers 1.33 and 2.4 are common aspect ratios for film.
  • Image Width: Adjust the physical width of the camera's film or sensor in millimeters. You can usually find this figure in your camera's user manual.
