hi. Im Joe. Ive been an artist all of my life. Im primarily a musician for money, but I love sculpting and building armature and puppets for animation. Trying to bridge a gap to digital realm animation and creation. Cheers.
hi. Excuse me if this is the wrong space for this, but im having trouble with my mouse settings suddenly. Everything was fine and then at some point when I click the middle mouse button to try to scroll around it zooms way in sometimes inside or passed my object. And scrolling to zoom goes crazy fast and far. Like one middle mouse scroll notch will zoom inside my object. 
Anyone have a fix for this? It makes my scrolling basically unusable

Hit . (dot) and then it should bring the current object into view and zoom should be working fine again.
Usually it's a common camera issue (common for almost any 3D app).

To make it stop and get back to normal, just select any object from the outliner, then hit "." (dot/period) on the numeric pad (having the mouse over the 3D viewport).

That should do it.

Also have a look at your view clip planes, tell us what your settings look like (just hit "N" to make the side bar appear, and flick the "View" tab).
