Unity Basics — Scene Navigation

Scene Window

This is the Scene Gizmo.

3D SPACE

To look around, hold down a right+click on your mouse.

Your cursor will turn to this:

Then drag and you can do this:

In 3D space, you can move through the scene like in an FPS game, using either the arrow keys, or WASD — WASD is better.

But first you need to right+click and hold in the scene window, then use WASD, and press and hold shift to speed up.

…slow…
…FAST!!!

Have fun with that — practice around a bit, get comfy, and next time we’ll get into game object manipulation!
