What does Set Camera Target do?
With the Set Camera Target tool you can select the point to where the camera is oriented.
When you have selected a camera target, Tumble will revolve the camera around this point and Dolly will make the camera move closer/farther away from it – even if the camera has been panned, so the target is no longer in the center of the Real-time View.
You can set the camera target in 2 ways:
- via the Tool
- via the Real-time View Context menu
