I see so the model disappears only when the root is not in the camera frame. I can work around that. Thanks for the help.

Last time I had similiar problem(but using scaled models) During posing remember, root transform bone would be in camera range. Just move pelvis to root transform bone and pose. Should helps.

Basically what the title says. I will try to go into as much details as possible. The model in question is Nahka's Multipurpose Male Bodies model. Under certain angles the model becomes invisible. I can see the modes bones when I press ctrl but the model itself cant be seen until I change the angle. From what I gathered it is caused by something called "frustum culling". The solution I found was "commenting out "$hboxset" in the model's QC file". Problem is that I know nothing about programing/coding or SFM file terminology. Can someone explain to me how to do this please? I have no idea what the QC file is, or how to open it, or what it means to comment out "$hboxset"... I do not like to post a request like this because I feel like this is something I should figure out. But I can not find any straightforward information that would help me with my low level of knowledge on this subject. I would appreciate any help. Many thanks in advance.
