How do the camera parameters work?

Can you give a breakdown of what each of the properties in the camera parameters work? It would be great to use this feature so all my products are set at the same 3D effect.


Sure, Origami (like Boxshot, Koru and Owlet) features orbit camera that rotates around the center. This center is defined by the bottom parameters of window, called "Target parameters", as they define the target that the camera looks at:

At the top you see "Yaw" and "Pitch" parameters, that define rotation angles, and the "Distance" parameter that controls how far is the camera from the center (target position).

Try our other software, like Boxshot that displays these parameters in real time while you rotating the camera with your mouse to see how they work.

The recommended approach for having similar views of multiple models is to export models to a scene composing application like Boxshot, Owlet or Koru, where you have much more control on the camera and other parameters. However, if all you need is to have the same camera position, simply copy the values you like from the parameters window and re-use them when needed.
