Inserting Reference Photo

Post by MorningRain11 » Sat Jul 13, 2013 8:52 pm

On Blender Bootcamp #3, the video shows how to insert a reference photo. I did exactly as it showed to do. But no picture showed up. What could be wrong?? :cry:

Probabilistic Guess says: Not in Ortho Mode.

"Ortho[graphic] mode" is one of two ways of viewing a scene in blender, representing everyting without any apparent perspective. The other view is "perspective mode", which shows the scene from the perspective of the camera. To see the difference, load the default scene in Blender, and press the "5" key on the number pad several times, studying the difference this makes in representation of the object.

One difference in Blender is that an image loaded as a background image in the 3d viewport properties shelf, can only be seen in orthographic mode.
