please could we get an additional 'standard' camera coordinate settings options for the perspective cameras? from all programs i have ever used, FZ is pretty unique not to have the way to set the viewpoint with x, y, z coordinates and the center of interest with angles refering to the x, y, z axes (also known as heading, pitch and bank) and image plane defined by a scalar distance from the viewpoint.

if we could have this option additionally to "XYZ" and "polar" it would be much easier to enter coordinates of scenes used in other environments and it would be less disorienting for casual users to handle FZ cameras.

I can do this in 6.7.3....When I go into view parameters I have xyz's for eye point and center of interest. There is a spin parameter as well.

this is still a choice in FZ7, but my request was about optionally defining the 'center of interest' by the rotation angles of the local camera coordinate system axes, not by absolute coordinates.
