    Default A Lazy Susan Camera Object That Rotates About Placement Via Keyboard Keys Only

    It would be really cool to have a Lazy Susan type camera object that you can
    place in a room that does not move in any direction (its position in the room is
    fixed and can not be modified by keyboard key) but instead it rotates about in
    a 360 degree direction based on the keyboard arrow keys (left right up and down).

    You may know this, but you can get that effect if you render a sperical panoramic view (.pan file) and then view it with a pan file viewer like imove.

    http://www.truevis.com/portfolio/terrace/pano.html

    shows 3 panoramic renderings viewed by a java applet. Thus your wish has been granted if you know how to do it.

    The applet is JsphereMini.

    Rename .pan to .jpg.

    Would be cool to get the PAN files without rendering! Shaded or hidden line mode!

    you can also place a camera in a room and use the "dynamically modify view" which has a "walkthrough" tab. while you're on this tab, shift-click and drag and it will let you do exactly what I think you want.

    HTH.

    Ah, good idea. That. combined with an AVI screen capture would make a quick presentation.

    Could do it with a 'walkthrough' export, too.

    Make multiple .jpg exports around the room and put them together with Autostich.
