    Gain direct control over your cameras without leaving Unity Game Viewport.

    Fly around your scene with just a press of a hotkey. A must have for those using multiple displays. Both game and editor cameras can be linked, positioned, and aligned suiting your editing preferences.



    Features:
    • Navigate editor and game cameras directly inside game or scene view
    • Works while the editor is playing or stopped
    • Activates with a hotkey
    • Supports two game cameras with separate settings for position and rotation
    • Keep your defaults in place. Save and restore camera origin as required
    • Plays well with multiple scene views such as “4 split” editor layout
    • Supports orthographic camera mode

    GET YOUR CAMERA TOOL COPY!
    Its free.


    CameraTool version 1.1 change list (Unity 5.4b25 tested):
    -Fixed a startup issue, where script did not run properly on the editor restart, or after the game has been stopped
    -Added a main menu section for CameraTool
    -Added an auto setup feature using existing scene cameras. The default activation hotkey is set to 'C'
    -The on screen label has been updated with the more informative text and layout

    I can't add F3DCameraTool to any object, Unity 4.6.0b20 says: "Can't Add Script - The script is an editor script."

    Hey it seems like you trying to add an editor script from the editor folder. This asset currently works with 4.6.0f3 and 4.5.5. Try adding Camera Tool using Add Component using inspector tab. Please attach some screenshots (including detailed console output) because that would help me to identify the problem and providing more details describing what you did to reproduce this on my side would be great. Thanks!

    I tried to add it with Add Component first, but it would not find anything named "f3d" or anything remotely similar. I'll post screenshots in a minute, thanks.

    Try typing "camera tool" in search field. Anyway theres only two scripts under Assets/Forge3d/Camera Tool and you need one without "editor" in the end. You can drag and drop it on your camera or any other game object in the scene. Let me know if that helps

    That's what I was doing. I managed to get it working by dragging the FORGE3D folder into the Assets/Plugins folder, then it registered correctly. Add Component works now too.

    Thats very interesting. Seems like its beta build that might be leading to this problem. Unfortunately I cannot downgrade to your version to test this but I will check the asset by using the asset store version of packaging with a freshly created project. Thanks for your feedback.

    Just curious, are the models of the ship and asteroids available on the Asset Store, or are they custom-made?

    HI! Great tool; just feedback. Camera Tool is not compatible with PlayModePersist (and vice). When Camera Tool script is active PlayModePersist asset tool not work. A good feature is to lock an axis and/or FOV perspective; in order to move into x and y but "seeing" what we look when game is running. Just my wish list!

    Hey sirio21,

    Thank you for your feedback! I haven't seen alrets in this thread since ages due to the recent forum updates. I have also checked on the PlayModePersist but it's been removed from the store unfortunately.

    I have saved your features request for the next update. We will look into that soon!

    Cheers,
    Alex

    Hey, just writting to let everyone know, that we've updated our little tool, and now it has been accepted in the Unity Asset Store.

    You can download it here: 'Camera Tool - 1.1' Download it for free!

    We are open to your feedback and it's always been important to us, even for this free little piece. So make sure to get in touch if you have an idea, that you might think will improve CameraTool or any Forge3D asset.

    Cheers,
    Alex
