    For anyone dealing with this in 2018.3.124f who finds this issue tracker page on google as i did.

    this issue seems to do with extreme camera movement without "reentering it" as soon as i use middle mouse button to re-anchor my camera and WASD around from there the issue was immediately fixed.

    Id assume using "F" to center camera on an object would also work.

    Is there any chance to get it fixed in Unity 2018.2? Not only in 2018.3 ? It was working ok in earlier versions.
