Walk 3D View

The Walk 3D View tool, located in the toolbar, allows you to position the camera in 3D

If you’re using a scene camera, you can also record the movement you create using the
Walk 3D View tool, by creating keyframes. For more information on keyframing, see

is selected from the Camera menu. For more information on the Camera menu, see
