What is a camera?

A camera is a “viewport” in the 3D world. 3D camera do NOT act like “real-world” lens-based cameras (in that there is no lens) – they are the “eyes” of a 3D environment: what people see! A 3D camera simulates what we would expect to see. In essence a 3D camera is a “projection” of 3D objects onto a 2D plane.

You can even view the action from different perspectives by having different cameras, as is shown in the demo above. We'll show you how this is done here.
