[page:Object3D] →


Abstract base class for cameras. This class should always be inherited when you build a new camera.



Creates a new [name]. Note that this class is not intended to be called directly; you probably want a [page:PerspectiveCamera] or [page:OrthographicCamera] instead.


See the base [page:Object3D] class for common properties.

[property:Layers layers]

The [page:Layers layers] that the camera is a member of. This is an inherited property from [page:Object3D].

Objects must share at least one layer with the camera to be seen when the camera's viewpoint is rendered.

[property:Matrix4 matrixWorldInverse]

This is the inverse of matrixWorld. MatrixWorld contains the Matrix which has the world transform of the Camera.

[property:Matrix4 projectionMatrix]

This is the matrix which contains the projection.

[property:Matrix4 projectionMatrixInverse]

The inverse of projectionMatrix.


See the base [page:Object3D] class for common methods.

[method:Camera clone]( )

Return a new camera with the same properties as this one.

[method:Camera copy]( [param:Camera source], [param:Boolean recursive] )

Copy the properties from the source camera into this one.

[method:Vector3 getWorldDirection]( [param:Vector3 target] )

[page:Vector3 target] — the result will be copied into this Vector3.

Returns a [page:Vector3] representing the world space direction in which the camera is looking. (Note: A camera looks down its local, negative z-axis).
