I did something unbeknownst to me and have made my view constantly follow an object. If i move that object it remains constant in the center of my view while the rest of the scene moves around instead.

What is this setting? I've tried pressing . on the number pad and it did nothing.

  • $\begingroup$ @RossM. Er.. How so? $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 May 22 '15 at 2:34
  • $\begingroup$ Correct me if I'm wrong, but that question you linked to dealt with orbiting about a certain point, while this question had to do with tracking an object (no orbiting involved. just panning) $\endgroup$ – Ross M. May 22 '15 at 2:34
  • $\begingroup$ @gandalf3 because that question addresses bizarre rotation issues with the viewport not the view locking to an object. $\endgroup$ – leigero May 22 '15 at 2:35
  • $\begingroup$ Yes. On further review, it's related (the lock to object setting did fix the issue for that question too). But this one is a different issue. It just happens to have a similar fix. $\endgroup$ – Ross M. May 22 '15 at 2:36

Press the N key to bring up the right tool bar, and delete your cog object from the Lock to Object field.

    $\begingroup$ Thank you, it's always a simple fix, just finding it is troublesome. $\endgroup$ – leigero May 22 '15 at 2:32

    $\begingroup$ No problem. A lot of stuff to do with the viewport setup (visibility of grid, axes, clipping, AO, matcaps, etc) are found in the N panel, so if you run into something you need to change in your viewport setup, odds are, it'll be in there. $\endgroup$ – Ross M. May 22 '15 at 2:33
