I am setting up an animation scene that needs to be a sprawling area. I have noticed that navigation gets awkward as I get further away from the central grid, especially in "user perspective". I am only at the point of setting up the main parts now and I would like to know now if I am doing something wrong before I get into adding the details. Is there a limit to how large I can make the world/set? Can I extend the outer boundaries? Am I doing something fundamentally wrong? Thank you!
You can technically make the scene infinitely as large as everything scales linearly. as you start getting up to a large scale you might start running into clipping issues with the camera however this can be adjusted by adjusting the end clip of the view.
However it's not recommended to scale things up more than needed as translation and scaling starts to get a little weird especially when you add cameras to the mix.
