As if ROOM 3D wasn't intuitive or easy enough to navigate around, we've managed to make your ROOM meetings easier and far more responsive!
Improved speed & precision, works like a dream.
While you'll still use your mouse's wheel and left-hand button to look around and interact with your guests from time to time, the new "table-top camera view" will pan around the table in half the time it used to take to mouse around using the old "drag-pan" (zoom out + pan)! You also have the option of panning the table-top camera with your keyboard arrows.
In addition to helping you quickly change focus on users, your mouse's response to the new controls will make keeping track of two whiteboards seem like child's play.
The new Camera control table navigation is now the default setting for most meeting room venues. It works smoothly, even in oblong-shaped tables and in auditorium-type rooms!
Pan slowly or pan fast, every distortion-free avatar stays perfectly synced, facing your point of view. Watch the video below to get a feel for the new camera control experience.
CAMERA TRACK (New table-centric camera view)
With our new table-top Camera Tracking mode any panning you do with your LEFT-MOUSE BUTTON will frame the other participants perfectly as your virtual camera rotates around the table. If you prefer, you can pan using your Left and Right Arrow keys, instead.
VIEWING TIP 1: While you're in table-top Camera Tracking mode, you can immediately change your focus to any given speaker. If you can't click on their realtime 3D cutout to fully focus your camera on him/her, just click on their 2D video icon to instantly bring them into full frame in front of you. All speakers that are out of frame will have a small 2D icon as you pan around.
VIEWING TIP 2: By the way, if it looks like any of the participants' cutouts aren't quite at eye level with you (or not quite aligned with the table), you have the option of engaging the RIGHT-mouse button and dragging the offending avatar higher or lower than their current position.
Don't Forget - these other Camera-related navigation shortcuts still work:
Zoom Out (widen your view/move back): Drag the mouse wheel toward you...
Zoom In (narrow your view/move in): Drag the mouse wheel away from you...
Lastly, If you happen to zoom/adjust your screen only to find that not all the avatars are facing you perfectly, just click on the "O" key - which will prompt all the participants to immediately face you ("Face Me" toggle).
