Amazon Sumerian Camera Component

The camera component adds a camera to your entity. In the Amazon Sumerian editor, you can use it to define your 3D viewport.


  • Main camera – Use this camera at the beginning of the scene. If you have multiple cameras, you can switch between them during both edit and playback modes.

  • Follow editor camera – Set the camera position with the editor camera. This is useful when switching between edit and play modes.

  • Projection – Control how the camera will project the 3D world on the 2D canvas.

  • Field of view (FOV) – Set the number of degrees from left to right that the camera will span.

  • Clipping planes – Set the distance from the camera at which objects are drawn.
