Remarks
By default, Insight3D allows the user to control the view with the mouse, and this class does not interfere with that. While this view is active, the user can use the mouse to zoom in and out as well as rotate around the specified entity, even while this view makes sure the entity remains the focus point of the camera. If you would like to lock the view to a specific offset, you must disable Insight3D's default mouse handling. See MouseOptions for details on adjusting mouse handling. This class only modifies camera properties related to Position and ReferencePoint. All other properties can still be adjusted manually.
