Moving the Camera

The next thing you'll need to learn to start making projects is how to navigate around the scene. The camera has two modes you can switch between which determines what hotkeys are used.

Camera Modes

Basic (default)

  • Left mouse to turn (pivot set in 3d space away from camera)
  • Right mouse to pan
  • Scroll to zoom


  • Right mouse to turn (pivot set on the camera)
  • Middle mouse button to pan
  • Scroll to zoom


You can also move the camera around the scene by using the "focus" feature. Focus will move your camera directly to an object. To focus on an object, you can either select it and press F on your keyboard, double click the object, select it and click the magnifying glass button on the ribbon, or you can find your object in the scene hierarchy, right click it, and select focus.

Now that we know how to navigate the scene, we can start learning how to position our objects.
