3D window settings does have the camera angle or viewing cone setting (or whatever it is called in english). If you save a 3D view it will retain the FOV you have set. Maybe this is this what you were after.

These are your only options. Move back or widen the field of view, which distorts the image.

If you choose the first option perhaps you can temporarily move a wall or create a polygonal marquee in such a way that it allows you view what you need from the outside. You may also combine that with viewing items outside the marquee as set in 'Filter and Cut Elements in 3D'.

famadorian:

You might get better results by checking the
Use two-point perspective option in the Perspective Settings dialog box.

You should add a Signature to your Profile (click the Profile button near the top of this page) with your ArchiCAD version and operating system (see mine for an example) for more accurate help in this forum.

This is some limitation in ArchiCAD right, cause normal rendering software allows to change the field of view?

You're saying " or widen the field of view, which distorts the image". The view cone can't be a field of view, as I pointed to in my article, cause field of view should not distort the image. There must be some other terminology to explain this "view cone" thing. In photography terms, what is this called?
