Key Combinations
« on: May 01, 2010, 05:24:03 am »
    Hi,

    I started this topic, so that all the key combinations will become clear for me. I think that I don't know every key combination (KC).

    I will post here every KC I know, if you know another one (or a better description) please reply.

    In the end we could have a complete KC-list.

    LMB = left mouse button
    RMB = right mouse button
    MMB = middle mouse button
    MW = mouse wheel

    KC:                              Description:

    LMB                             Move camera around object
    MMB                            Pan camera
    RMB + "move object"      Rotate object around x,y and/or z axis. Also the ability to scale the object.
    MW                             Nothing
    alt + MW                      Increase or decrease Focal Lenght
    alt + RMB                     Zoom out/in (move the mouse to the left or right)
    shift + alt + LMB            Move the object in relation to the ground/floor
    shift + alt + MMB           Rotate Object on the Y-axis
    shift + alt + RMB           Scale object
    ctrl + LMB                    Rotate the open environment around the object y-axis
    ctrl + alt + LMB             Rotate the open environment around the object  (x or z axis, don't know for sure)
    ctrl + alt + RMB             It does something, just not sure what, it looks like panning the camera.
    ctrl + alt + MW              Rotates the camera (twist angle)
    ctrl + shift + alt + LMB    Sets the height of the object in relation to the ground (move mouse up or down)
    ctrl + shift + alt + MMB   Rotate object on every single axis at once

Very nice. Or you could hit "K" or look under Help > Hot Keys Overview to see the completed list.  ;)

I found 1 that isn't being mentioned:

ctrl + alt + LMB&drag   this rotates the HDR environment vertically.

Yes - and there is a reason for that. It works in realtime, but as soon as you hit the render button is will shift the ground plane. There is no recovery from that.

Shift C is also not documented - turn the coordinate system on and off.

Ow, that's a shame. I would really like that feature. Is it possible to see it again in keyshot 2? (or maybe for later versions?)
