Reverse Orbit

By default Cinema4D rotates the viewport one direction when you drag the rotate icon in the top right of the editor view. To me this is the wrong way around and if you are used to other 3D applications then it is probably the wrong way around for you too.

Well if you open up Edit > Preferences, then you can change this.

Just check the parameter named Reverse Orbit.

Now doesn’t that feel better?

    Thanks for the tip Tim, i’d been struggling with that for a while and didn’t even think to check if I could change it!
