Now, we can do this manually or we can do it with a constraint. So let's go ahead and add a camera into the scene. Now, when the camera comes in, it comes in at the 3D cursor, and it's facing down. Now, if we want to look through the camera, all we have to do is select a viewport and turn it on to Camera.

Now, we can move this camera just using our Move tool and as you can see as I move this camera up, you can see the top of the character's head. Or if I want, I can rotate that camera a little bit and move it into place. Now, I can switch between global and local moving. So, if I move this, say, here globally, you can see how that works. Now, if you want to actually manipulate the camera along its own axis, you would set your coordinates to Local. And this is actually kind ...
