3D Viewport

The main method to navigate the viewport, in the center of the interface, is to use mouse panning and zooming. Users from Unity or Maya might find navigating the viewport familiar. See Main controls.

Gizmos are used to manipulate position, rotation and scale.


Mesh/Bone selection

Selected meshes will have a red outline, while selected bones of skeletons have a green highlight.

If a bone of a skeleton has been adjusted (but the animation not keyed), it will be displayed with a red highlight. This happens when adjusting a bone while Autokey is OFF. See Animation mode for more

Multiple selection

Click and drag to create a bounding box, every component inside this box will be selected.

To add more components to the selection. Hold shift and mouse drag or click.

To deselect some of the components. Hold Ctrl / Command and mouse drag or click.

To invert the selection. Hold shift + Ctrl / Command and mouse drag.


You can toggle the camera view between perspective and orthographic mode, located on the top left of the 3D viewport. Or click on the shortcut below:
