Camera Properties

Low-Level Camera Properties
Low-Level Camera Properties

CameraViewAngle Specifies the field of view of the “lens.” If you specify a value for CameraViewAngle, MATLAB overrides stretch-to-fill behavior (see the “Aspect Ratio” section).
CameraViewAngleMode In automatic mode, MATLAB adjusts the view angle to the smallest angle that captures the entire scene. In manual mode, you specify the angle.
Setting CameraViewAngleMode to manual overrides stretch-to-fill behavior.
% disable the stretch-to-fill behavior

set(gca,'DataAspectRatio',[1 1 1]);

daspect([1 1 1]);

%         X      Y      Z
win = [ -1, 1, -1, 1, -1, 1];
axis equal;

=== OR ===


camzoom sets the axes CameraViewAngle property, which in turn causes the CameraViewAngleMode property to be set to manual. Note that setting the CameraViewAngle property disables the MATLAB stretch-to-fill feature (stretching of the axes to fit the window). This may result in a change to the aspect ratio of your graph. See the axes function for more information on this behavior.
