Clipping issue when opening older models in SUp2022

Postby faust07 » Fri Jul 01, 2022 10:38 pm

Currently trying to switch from SketchUp 2021 to SketchUp 2022.
In most architectural and city models are scenes with orthogonal representations (site plans, floor plans, elevations, isometrics).
After opening SUp2021 models in SUp2022, the models in these scenes are either completely invisible or cut away in the background.
See the scene pictures below.
This is probably related to the changes made to avoid the "clipping" problem.
The only way I can fix this so far is to switch to perspective projection, back to parallel projection, and zoom to approximately the previous section for each scene.
In models with many scenes, this is very time-consuming, not very creative, not productive and the effort is difficult to explain to my boss...
Is there an easier or faster way to solve this problem?

What happens if you switch to Perspective view and then back to Parallel Projection. There was a "fix" to the clipping plane thing that has caused problems for some users; especially those who leverage the clipping for interior views but it could be an issue for exterior views such as yours.

If I switch to perspective view an back to parallel projection SketchUp zooms to the extents of the visible geometry.
I then have to manually adjust the original framing of the view for each scene.
There are no problems with perspective exterior or interior views, only with parallel projections.

Yes. A consequence of fixing the clipping bug that everyone complained about for years is the affect on scenes like yours that were set up to rely on the bug. They did make it so you can set the scenes up again to get the view while not running into clipping.

I almost thought so...
But fixing the clipping error is also an improvement for my work.
Especially for perspective exterior views in narrow lanes or interior views in models with large extension and activated shadows.
Thanks for addressing the issue. :thumb:

Glad it works out for the better for you.
