Moving models and cameras

In Director 8.5, there is more than one way to move a model or a camera. Models and cameras can be moved relative to themselves, other models, or the world itself. In addition, these objects can be moved with two different Lingo procedures. Your choices about which of these methods to use will have noticeable affects on the appearance of your 3D cast members.
