Q: Part of my scene is disappearing into the background, like the world isn't big enough, or I can't zoom close enough to my object without it getting clipped off. How I can view farther away or closer up?

A: Change your clipping planes in your perspective camera attributes. View > Select Camera. Open the Attribute Editor. Scroll down to Near and Far Clip Planes. Increase the Far Clip Plane (add a zero) or Decrease the Near Clip Plane (add another zero after the decimal). The reason to keep these narrower is to decrease the amount of space maya needs to do calculations for.
