Does anyone know how to set the clipping planes, or whatever they're called in Maya? It's really frustrating when I want to zoom way in and work on a small part of my model and have the thing hit the near clip and disappear. If I have to use a damn camera (lame) I'll do it, I just want to know how to edit this or turn clipping planes off.
Just above your view port you should see "view, Shading, Lighting, Show, Panels". Click on "view - select camera".
Then press control A to enter the attribute editor. You will then find the near clip plane under the camera attributes.
