# What is field of view in SketchUp?

Contents

Type in an angle (in degrees) that represents how wide you’d like your view to be, and press Enter — this is your field of view. For a 45 degree FOV, you’d type 45deg. The larger the angle, the more you’ll be able to see. SketchUp’s default FOV is 35 degrees, but 60 degrees is much handier for interior views.

## How do you set up a field of view?

1. Select the Zoom tool by pressing Z on your keyboard.
2. Type in an angle (in degrees) that represents how wide you’d like your view to be, and press Enter — this is your field of view. For a 45 degree FOV, you’d type 45deg. The larger the angle, the more you’ll be able to see.

## What is the real life FOV?

Our eyes are the natural start of perception of FOV. In human vision, the field of view is composed of two monocular FOVs which our brains stitch together to form one binocular FOV. Individually, our eyes have a horizontal FOV of about 135 degrees and a vertical FOV of just over 180 degrees.

## What field of view do humans have?

We humans are largely binocular beings. Each eye alone gives us roughly a 130-degree field of vision. With two eyes, we can see nearly 180 degrees. Most of that field is what’s called a Cyclopean image — the single mental picture that a Cyclops might see.

## Is field of view linear?

The linear field of view is the width of the area seen and is given in feet observed at 1000 yds. A larger number for either angular or linear field of view means you see a larger area. … For example, if the angular field of a particular binocular is 8°, then the linear field at 1000 yds will be 420 ft (8 x 52.5).

## What is field of view binoculars?

The field of view is how wide an area is encompassed in the binoculars’ image. It can be expressed as an angle (8°), or as the width in feet of the image at 1000 yards (420 ft.) … More power usually means a narrower field of view.

## What field of view is 180?

The human field of view is about 180 degrees by 120 degrees, giving us a panoramic view of the scene. This helps us detect hazards and avoid obstacles, see the overall shape of large objects and objects in confined spaces, and robustly estimate egomotion.

## Why is SketchUp cutoff?

Another situation that can cause clipping is when the Perspective camera mode is turned off. In that case, click the Zoom Extents button (it looks like a magnifying glass with four red arrows pointing outward). The camera zooms out to display the entire model, and the clipping is eliminated.
