Navigating the 3D Viewport
Navigating the 3D viewport in Blender can be tricky at first, but with some practice, it becomes second nature. There are three types of navigational movements in Blender: an orbit, a pan, and a zoom. We'll investigate these in depth in this video.
I recommend you use a 3-button mouse with Blender, especially for this video. However, if a 3-button mouse isn't easily available to you, the next video covers trackpad and 2-button mouse controls.
