Dollying, Tracking, and Tumbling

Dollying, tracking, and tumbling allow you to change your view of a scene, controlling how far or near its objects appear. Since you’re always looking through a camera, dollying, tracking, and tumbling provide ways to move that camera around the scene. These are some of the most important tools in Maya because you need to see objects from every direction and dimension. The point of view from which you’re viewing your scene becomes important to the alignment and placement of objects.

Tracking a view moves that view up, down, or sideways. You might track a view to get a look at an object that’s currently out of view.
