Question maya objects are hidden when I zoom out

I have a scene with a big object,
because I want to realize an animation and when I pan camera
with small object the pan are much faster, with the big object work pretty good.

When I zoom out in my perspect (or other view)
all the object are hidden WHY ???

I also changed the shading option but I dont see the wireframe
in a far view

Default

select the camera, open the attribute editor and increase the far clip plane to something like 10000000.

also, in the prefs, u can change the default clip planes to suit your needs

I wrote this script a while back to fix this when it occurs;. Rather than manually go and extend the far clipping plane, if you make a shelf button out of this code it will double the far clippling plane of whatever camera/view is active.

string $currentCamera;
string $panel = `getPanel -wf`;

if ( "modelPanel" == `getPanel -to $panel` )
{
$currentCamera = `modelEditor -q -camera $panel`;
}

string $farClip = ($currentCamera + ".farClipPlane");
float $farClipValue = `getAttr $farClip`;
setAttr $farClip ($farClipValue * 2);
