Translate XY in 3D viewer with napari

Hello,

I’m really enjoying using Napari and saving movies with naparimovie. One thing I haven’t figured out is how to move the image in XY when using the 3D viewer. I gather this is because the camera we’re using is the “ArcballCamera” which rotates around a central point.

What is a good way to update the central point in order to translate the view in XY? Is this a command that could be mapped onto a couple of keys? I’d find this useful when setting “key frames” to save a movie in naparimovie.

Thanks!

i believe it’s shift-click and drag.

I can confirm that the translation works for me. Let us know @3Dimager if it doesn’t work for you! I’m not quite sure about how naparimovie will handle the translations

naparimovie captures the camera center translation, so you should be fine:
