Amazon Sumerian Editor Canvas

The WebGL-rendered viewport is located in the center of the Sumerian editor. Here you can navigate, inspect, and preview the contents of your scene.

The menu bar at the top of the canvas has options for camera, playback, and rendering. Many of the buttons also have equivalent keyboard commands.
