A camera is an object that provides a means of rendering images from Blender. It defines which portion of a scene is visible in the rendered image.

Cameras are invisible in renders, so they do not have any material or texture settings. However, they do have Object and Editing setting panels available which are displayed when a camera is the selected (active!) object.

Properties ‣ Camera



The camera lens options control the way 3D objects are represented in a 2D image.


This matches how you view things in the real world. Objects in the distance will appear smaller than objects in the foreground, and parallel lines (such as the rails on a railroad) will appear to converge as they get farther away.

Focal Length/Field of View

The focal length controls the amount of zoom, i.e. the amount of the scene which is visible all at once. Longer focal lengths result in a smaller FOV (more zoom), while short focal lengths allow you to see more of the scene at once (larger FOV, less zoom).


Perspective camera with 35 mm focal length.


Perspective camera with 210 mm focal length instead of 35 mm.

Lens Unit

The focal length can be set either in terms of millimeters or the actual Field of View as an angle.



While the camera is moving towards an object the Focal Length property can be decreased to produce a Dolly Zoom camera effect, or vice versa.

This video demonstrates the Dolly Zoom camera effect.


With Orthographic perspective objects always appear at their actual size, regardless of distance. This means that parallel lines appear parallel, and do not converge like they do with Perspective.


Render from the same camera angle as the previous examples, but with orthographic perspective.

Orthographic Scale

Définit la taille apparente des objets projetés sur l’image.

Notez que celui-ci est effectivement le seu paramètre qui s’applique à la perspective orthographique. Puisque les lignes parallèles ne convergent pas en mode orthographique (pas de point de fuite), les paramètres de variation de l’objectif sont équivalents à déplacer la caméra dans la Vue 3D.


Les caméras panoramiques ne fonctionnent que dans Cycles. Voir les paramètres de la caméra panoramique dans Cycles pour plus d’informations.


Allows for the adjustment of vanishing points. Vanishing points refer to the positions to which parallel lines converge. In these render examples, the most obvious vanishing point is at the end of the railroad.


Un lens shift horizontal de 0.330.


Rotation de l’objet caméra au lieu d’un lens shift.

Notice how the horizontal lines remain perfectly horizontal when using the lens shift, but do get skewed when rotating the camera object.


Using lens shift is equivalent to rendering an image with a larger FOV and cropping it off-center.

Clip Start and End

The interval in which objects are directly visible, Any objects outside this range still influence the image indirectly, as further light bounces are not clipped.


For viewport rendering, setting clipping distances to limited values is important to ensure sufficient rasterization precision. Ray tracing renders do not suffer from this issue so much, and as such more extreme values can safely be set.


When Limits in the Display panel is enabled, the clip bounds will be visible as two yellow connected dots on the camera line of sight.

Depth of Field (Profondeur de champs)

Real-world cameras transmit light through a lens that bends and focuses it onto the sensor. Because of this, objects that are a certain distance away are in focus, but objects in front and behind that are blurred.


Exemple d’un effet bokeh du DOF.

La zone de vision nette est appelée point focal et peut être définie soit par une valeur exacte, soit en utilisant la distance entre la caméra et l’objet choisi :

Focus Object

Choose an object which will determine the focal point. Linking an object will deactivate the distance parameter. Typically this is used to give precise control over the position of the focal point, and also allows it to be animated or constrained to another object.

Focal Distance

Sets the distance to the focal point when no Focus Object is specified. If Limits are enabled, a yellow cross is shown on the camera line of sight at this distance.


Hover the mouse over the Distance property and press E to use a special Depth Picker. Then click on a point in the 3D View to sample the distance from that point to the camera.



F-Stop ratio that defines the amount of blurring. Lower values give a strong depth of field effect.


Total number of polygonal blades used to alter the shape of the blurred objects in the render, and render preview. As with the viewport, the minimum amount of blades to enable the bokeh effect is 3, resulting in a triangular-shaped blur.


Rotate the polygonal blades along the facing axis, and will rotate in a clockwise, and counter-clockwise fashion.


Change the amount of distortion to simulate the anamorphic bokeh effect. A setting of 1.0 shows no distortion, where a number below 1.0 will cause a horizontal distortion, and a higher number will cause a vertical distortion.


Camera Presets

Préréglages qui correspondent à une caméra réelle.

Sensor size

This setting is an alternative way to control the focal length, it is useful to match the camera in Blender to a physical camera and lens combination, e.g. for motion tracking.

Sensor Fit

Option to control which dimension (vertical or horizontal) along which field of view angle fits.

Safe Areas

Les zones de sécurité sont des guides pour positionner des éléments afin que les parties les plus importantes du contenu peuvent être vues dans toutes les vues.

Different screens have varying amounts of overscan (especially older TV sets). That means that not all content will be visible to all viewers, since parts of the image surrounding the edges are not shown. To work around this problem TV producers defined two areas where content is guaranteed to be shown: action safe and title safe.

Modern LCD/plasma screens with purely digital signals have no overscan, yet safe areas are still considered best practice and may be legally required for broadcast.

Dans Blender, les zones de sécurité peuvent être définies dans les vues Caméra et Séquenceur.


Ligne rouge: Action safe. Ligne verte: Title safe.

The Safe Areas can be customized by their outer margin, which is a percentage scale of the area between the center and the render size. Values are shared between the Video Sequence editor and camera view.

Title Safe Margins X/Y

Also known as Graphics Safe. Place all important information (graphics or text) inside this area to ensure it can be seen by the majority of viewers.

Action Safe Margins X/Y

Make sure any significant action or characters in the shot are inside this area. This zone also doubles as a sort of « margin » for the screen which can be used to keep elements from piling up against the edges.


Each country sets a legal standard for broadcasting. These include, among other things, specific values for safe areas. Blender defaults for safe areas follow the EBU (European Union) standard. Make sure you are using the correct values when working for broadcast to avoid any trouble.

Center-Cut Safe Areas

Center-cuts are a second set of safe areas to ensure content is seen correctly on screens with a different aspect ratio. Old TV sets receiving 16:9 or 21:9 video will cut off the sides. Position content inside the center-cut areas to make sure the most important elements of your composition can still be visible in these screens.

Blender defaults show a 4:3 (square) ratio inside 16:9 (widescreen).


Ligne cyan: action center safe. Ligne bleue: title center safe.

Background Images

A background picture in your camera can be very helpful in many situations: modeling is obviously one, but it is also useful when painting (e.g. you can have reference pictures of faces when painting textures directly on your model…), or animation (when using a video as background), etc.

Background Source

C’est la source de l’image d’arrière plan.


Utiliser une image externe, une séquence d’image, un fichier vidéo ou une texture générée.

Utilise un des data-blocks de Movie Clip.

Offset X/Y

Positionne l’image d’arrière plan en utilisant ces décalages.

In orthographic views, this is measured in the normal scene units. In the camera view, this is measured relative to the camera bounds (0.1 will offset it by 10% of the view width/height).
