View Transitions – AutoCAD 2008 (and earlier)

I recently came across a variable that was set in an older release on my machine but not my newest install of AutoCAD 2008 . It controls the View Transitions. You can have them smoothly glide in and out – or turn it off (my preference)

Here is the “how to” from the help files in AutoCAD 2008…


To change the appearance of view transitions

  1. At the Command prompt, type VTOPTIONS
  2. In the View Transitions dialog box, check one or more of the following options:
    • Enable Animation for Pan and Zoom. Makes a smooth view transition during panning and zooming.
    • Enable Animation When View Rotates. Makes a smooth view transition when the view angle is changed.
    • Enable Animation During Scripts. Makes a smooth view transition while a script is running.
  3. Set the transition speed by moving the slider.
  4. To preserve performance, set the minimum frames per second for showing smooth view transitions. When a smooth view transition cannot maintain this speed, an instant transition is used.
  5. Click OK.
