hello everyone and welcome to the microstation connect edition visualization video series my name is steve rick senior consultant at bentley systems we're going to jump right into this we're going to start off with how to set up a camera so i've launched microstation connect edition i'm going to load the workspace bentley connect training and the work set visualization i'm going to hit browse and i'm going to load the dgn file a under bar station model under bar ms all right so you may notice that when we open up the file we open up into a camera view already right i have a number of camera views saved in this data set so we can we can do that but it's very very important to learn how to properly set up a camera view i'm going to restore down view 2 here and move my cursor to the lower left hand corner click and drag that view up into the upper right hand corner when setting up a camera inside of microstation connect edition the easiest way to do it is to have multiple views open so i have a my view number one is a top view my view number three is a front elevation and my view number two is where my camera view is going to show up so what we need to do is we need to go to the place camera tools so i'm going to load the visualization workflow i'm going to go to the home tab over to the camera group and select the command place camera now the biggest mistake that people make when they're placing a camera is they forget to read the prompts the first data point or the first left click that i enter if you look at the prompt in the lower left hand corner it says select active view so the first click that i make is going to tell microstation which view i want my perspective to show up in or my camera view to show up in so i'm going to click in view number two now i'm going to set my camera settings in my window my settings window i want my standard lens to be set to wide and give me a wide angle lens that sets the angle and the focal length for me i'm going to turn on camera height and target height and i'm going to place my camera height that's my eye point at 2 meters or 2000 millimeters and where i'm looking at my target is also going to be set at two thousand millimeters this will offset the camera from wherever i select in the top view two thousand millimeters off the ground the next prop down here in the lower left hand corner is defined camera position now i'm going to stand on this median here and i'm going to look at my building notice also that i have my snaps turned off if i have my snaps on and i snap to this curve that's going to set my eye point height at the elevation of the curve which is zero so uh i don't want to snap here i'm going to turn my snaps off i'm going to stand on this medium i'm going to left click that tells microstation that's where i'm standing and then i'm going to look through my building i don't want to stop my target point so this is my target point i don't want to stop my target point short of my building it looks proportionately better if i look through the object of interest also the cone that you see of the triangle that you see on your screen is my camera angle my view angle so everything that's inside that triangle is going to be seen in my view so i want to get that bus on the outer median there and i want to get the car in the front there so and i also want to look through my building i'm going to left-click here and you'll see the view come up in view number two very very important that we save this view and i'll show you why a little bit later so i'm going to go to the view tab and i'm going to click on the hands up at the top and i'm going to name this view from parking and then left click in view number two that's the view i want to say i'm going to maximize view number two you're going to see that the view looks smaller doesn't fill up the screen or doesn't fill up the view as much as when i saved it when it was smaller so we just have to recall that saved view i'm going to hit the dialog launcher in the saved view group i'm gonna double click on view from parking that's the one we just saved and then left click in view number two and there we have it a nice camera view good proportions and everything that's in the cone is visible now i'm going to place into a rendering so i'm going to go back to the home tab and the rendering group and click on render scene and there you go also you can see some trees in the background you did not see that in the view because those trees are ecosystems same thing with the flowers in the planter on the side of the building that's an ecosystem you can't see ecosystems in a smooth rendered view we'll teach you about ecosystems a little bit later on in another video thank you for watching we'll see you the next video if you found this video helpful please give it a like if you want to see more such series consider subscribing to our channel thank you and see you next time
