Look Around tool introduction

Use the Look Around tool to pivot the camera (your view) around a stationary point. The Look Around tool behaves similarly to a person standing still while turning their head to up, down (tilt), and side to side (pan). The Look Around tool is particularly useful for viewing the inside of spaces, or to evaluate visibility after using the Position Camera tool. Activate the Look Around tool from either the Walkthrough toolbar (Microsoft Windows, Tool Palette (Mac OS X) or the Camera menu.
