Far Clipping - Dependent Views

I have to admit, this one stumped me for a little while today. When using dependent views you may find 'far clipping' is greyed out in the 'child' views. 

After scratching my head and checking all the usual suspects, I discovered when using dependent views the clip depth is actually controlled by the 'Parent view'. Move to the parent view and you will now notice 'Far Clipping' is no longer greyed out.

Makes sense and means less setup when preparing your dependent views. A side tip when preparing dependent views; use scope boxes. They will help to setup consistent crop regions and initial set out of datum objects like levels and grids.
