What the Free Cam is

The Free Cam is a short name for free camera navigation mode. In this mode you can freely navigate around the 3D world.

How the Free Cam is related to the Tygron Platform

The Tygron Platform offers an option to activate a free camera navigation mode. This makes it possible to take a screenshot or record a movie of the current situation in the 3D world of the project.
Navigation is possible throught the keyboard keys or by pressing the mouse button and moving it. The keyboard keys can be used to move left, right, up and down in the 3D world. The left and right mouse buttons can be used for rotation, and the scroll wheel can be used for zooming in and out in the 3D world.
