About the Orthographic Camera

In Harmony, there are two types of cameras available:

  • Perspective
  • Orthographic

The orthographic camera is specific to the gaming pipeline. It changes the camera type from perspective to orthographic. It becomes a camera without vanishing points. This means there is no more perspective in the Camera view. Objects, when moved on the Z-axis, will not change in size or scale.

Orthographic Camera

The orthographic camera can be set in the Scene Settings dialog box. In order to create scenes with the orthographic camera, by default, you need to create a new custom scene resolution.
