Use keyboard shortcuts to move interactively.
- [Instructor] 3ds Max has a very useful technique…for navigating in a perspective or camera view port,…and that's known as walkthrough mode.…It allows you to navigate…just like you're in a virtual environment,…in a game or simulation.…Walkthrough mode can be helpful for previewing…an actual walkthrough animation,…or for setting camera framings.…To activate walkthrough mode,…go into a perspective or camera view port,…and in the lower right corner,…in the view port navigation controls,…there's a hand icon labeled pan view.…
Click and hold that button.…You'll get a fly out, and choose the icon…that looks like a walking person.…And now you're in walkthrough mode,…and you've also chosen the walkthrough button…to be visible from that fly out.…Click and drag in a perspective or camera view,…and you'll be able to pan and tilt in that view.…Walkthrough mode uses keyboard shortcuts for all commands.…The first one we'll see is how to level the camera,…and the keyboard shortcut for that…is shift and spacebar.…
And now the tilt rotation is reset.…
