This is a resolved problem but I figured I’d make a quick post just in case someone else stumbled onto the problem. I’ll start with a summary. If you are picking an object using raycasting and the selection seems inaccurate, check to make sure you haven’t inadvertently set one of your camera Scale values to something other than “1”.
I’m new to PlayCanvas and have been experimenting with scenes as a way to learn. So the scene isn’t particularly interesting, but I’ll link to it anyway. Just go into the camera setting and change any Scale value to something other than “1” and you’ll see the problem.
