So I am doing a thumbnail for my team, and when I load my project, I can zoom and move around for about 20 seconds before it's not working, I can now do anything, but zoom in or out and movie my camera so I can't see the back, and it's really annoying. It's like my screen freeze, but I can look around. It does that to all of my project. I am on Macbook Air on Blender 2.8.

I found out it is when I am at like 2m from my 3D skin it starts to slow down and stop. Does any one know how to fix it?

This probably happens because your viewport is set to perspective view.
Therefore, the camera slows down when near it's limit.

Switch to orthographic mode, and all will work again.

View > Perspective/Orthographic
Shortcut: Numpad 5

  • $\begingroup$ Happy to help :). Orthographic view is perfect for precise modeling, perspective view is better for things like sculpting. You can now mark this question as solved, for others with the same problem. $\endgroup$ Dec 12, 2019 at 16:59
