The Fly tool on the Tools toolbar allows you to investigate your scene by flying through it. You can fly in any direction and move forward or backward at different speeds.
The Fly tool primarily controls the target location, moving it forward or backward in the direction of the pointer, while the observer location automatically follows along behind it. This tool will require some practice to master.
To use the Fly tool in ArcScene, do the following:
- Click the Fly button.
- Click once in the center of the 3D view.
- Click the mouse to move forward, or right-click to move backward.
- Press ESC to immediately stop movement in either direction.
The pointer changes to indicate Fly mode is active.
The tool enters a suspended state. You can position the pointer to look in all directions, but there is no translational movement. This is sometimes referred to as a "free look" mode.
Successive clicks in either direction increase the speed, which is indicated in the status bar window. A negative speed value indicates backward movement.
