Camera Preview disappear


#1

I just started PlayCanvas and camera preview automatically appears in the upper corner.
It then disappear on its own. It appear again when I click the camera menu. It then disappear later.

I tried many things to get the camera preview, including trying to click the lock icon. I reset the browser, the preview come back at first. But now the reset does not work, and preview disappear permanently! How can I get it back?

Suggestion: Add a menu or shortcut to force the showing/hiding of camera preview.

Thanks for any help.

Camera preview is only shown if the camera entity is selected. The lock doesn’t save between refresh sessions.

Thanks for the quick reply. It seems the camera preview (AND sometimes the camera gizmo itself) is acting strange.

I select the camera in the hierarchy, but BOTH the camera gizmo and the preview still does not appear. I refresh the browser and sometimes both appear again, sometimes only the gizmo appear.

Is the project public? Can you post a link to it?

Thanks for the reply again. It was my very first project. It had only one scene with the default camera, light, box and plane. I was just playing with it. Nothing much going on when the camera gizmo/preview disappear.

The original project was deleted, I had since redo the project and encountered similar problem, but refreshing the browser seem to solve the problem.

It is one of those annoying but tolerable glitch. I am still exploring and enjoying PlayCanvas.
