  2. Using your keyboard
  3. Using precise numbers

Using your mouse or trackpad

  • Drag on the scene to rotate
  • Hold G while dragging to pan
  • Scroll with two fingers (or pinch) to zoom with your trackpad

Using your keyboard

Many of Rotato's users like how this is a fast, consistent and precise way to control the camera.

  • Hold ⌘ Command while using the arrow keys to rotate
  • Hold shift to use precision mode and move in small steps
  • Press 0 to go back to the initial position

And for advanced users:
