Hi everyone. I'm wondering, is it possible to just have a camera rotaet around the object like the work cameras can?

I want the camera to center on an object, but in order to do that, I have to move the camera, then rotate it, then move it, then reotate it, then move it, then rotate it... THEN maybe it'll be right.

I just want it to orbit around the selected object so that I can get a better look on it when moving the camera.

How do I do this without all the moving and rotating?

Thanks.

The easiest way is to parent the camera to a null positioned at your object, then rotate the null.

Which is also the easiest way to animate it.

Cheers,

+1 Yeah, definitely the best way is to parent to a null!
