Rotate Around Mode

Camera rotation around the target can be activated by pressing the RotateAroundModeToggle key (default 'C' key). In this mode, the user can manually adjust the camera view at run-time using the mouse. To deactivate the Rotate Around mode, press the RotateAroundModeToggle key once more.

In the Rotate Around Mode camera view can be controlled as follows:

  • hold left shift + mouse movement: to adjust the camera position,
  • hold left shift + mouse scroll wheel: to zoom in or out of the camera view,
  • left shift + left arrow: to set left camera view,
  • left shift + right arrow: to set right camera view,
  • left shift + up arrow: to set front camera view,
  • left shift + down arrow: to set back camera view.


An optional prefab featuring a UI panel, located at Assets/Prefabs/UI/MainCameraView.prefab, can be used to showcase a user guide. To integrate this prefab into the scene, drag and drop it beneath the Canvas object. This prefab displays instructions on how to adjust the camera view whenever the Rotate Around Mode is activated.
