Stuck in viewport

This just keeps happening to me in 3D Studio Max 9. I'm in the perspective view, and I can't zoom in/out, and every attempt to move the camera around just stops. Help please!!

possibly your units,

in max go: customise / unit setup and set them to something sensible like cm or Meters and then model to scale because you can only zoom in so far before it stops.

For example its possible that you may have your units set to Meters and your making a human except your modelling him 0.1cm tall as you just randomly started modelling not to scale this wont work very well as your get all kinds of zoom problems and you wont be able to make primiitives that small either.

hope this helps with your problem

well basically in perspective i cant move around at all, it's just stuck there, zooming in and out doesn't do anything, it's basically just stuck there.

ill try your method when I get home, but its weird, it just happens randomly
