As its name implies, the Target tool directly manipulates the target location. When you click in the 3D view to set a new target location, the observer location will remain the same and will center its view on the new location. This is similar to standing still and turning your head to look at something different.
By setting a new target location, you are also preparing the 3D view for other uses. For example, rotating the 3D view after using this tool will pivot around the new target point, making that location the focus of the animation.
- Click the Center On Target button from the Tools toolbar.
The pointer changes to indicate the Target tool.
- Click once in the 3D view, either on the surface or on a 3D object.
The target is updated and centers the view to the new location.
