This editor allows you to add assets and lights to a scene as well as adjust the game path and camera. By default, every scene includes a camera, a source of light, and a set of start and end points of the current scene.
There are several important Follow camera attributes, such as Follow Position, Rotation, Offset, and others, that you need to define to make the camera move around as desired in your game. For details, see Camera Attributes.
To zoom or change the 3D view in the Scene Editor, you can use the View options on the Buildbox Menu Bar, which also include a special set of View options available only in the Scene Editor or the keyboard shortcuts below.
