Disable Camera Collision: Camera Collision prevents the camera from moving behind walls objects in your scene by zooming the camera in when walls or objects could interfere.
By disabling "camera collision" the camera may be blocked by objects and walls. We recommend disabling "double-sided" and using backface culling to see through the back of walls.
Double-Tap to Move: Double-clicking on objects or the ground will move the user to that position. Disable to prevent "teleporting" and only allow local movement.
Rotate with Arrow Keys: With this enabled, right and left arrow keys rotate the user and view angle. When disabled, right and left keys move the avatar to the right and left.
Rotation Speed: How quickly the view rotates.
Zoom Speed: How quickly the camera zooms when pressing the zoom controls.
Tilt Speed: How quickly the camera tilts up and down using the advanced view controls.
**Maximum Tilt Up (Advanced): In Advanced View, the highest tilt angle the camera can reach.
