Description

This class is used to access camera objects in the scene. A camera can be divided into 3 main parts: the device body, camera lens, and viewing area. Therefore, the interfaces available are: aperture, focal length, angle of view, depth of field, near / far plane settings, and viewport fitting.

See Also: RCameraDofData, RScene.
