I tried to import a obj file into Blender and could not do it. So I downloaded MeshLab and converted the obj to a dae file and still nothing happened. Nothing showed up on the screen and nothing appeared in the upper right corner- its a scene outliner type window (see pic)
Since those did not work. I converted it to a .ply file. That file appeared in the outliner but not on the desktop. So I spun on my mouse wheel and got the area super small and the file showed up.
How do i get the file back to the normal desk. It seems to have vanished altogether. Scrolling either way won't bring back the plane in the default window.
I created the character/object using this site, if it matters: http://cvl-demos.cs.nott.ac.uk/vrn/index.php
