Camera Navigator

Uses a Photoshop-like control to pan/zoom the 3d-view.
The camera never moves or changes perspective, it's just like zooming/tracking on a 2d picture.

Very cool. Where can I get it?

I created the script for KMA (, they own the rights, so I can't show you the code.
But it's created by parenting two planes to the camera.
The inner plane controls the camera preScale, horizontalFilmOffset, and verticalFilmOffset attributes with an expression.
It can be a bit tricky to make all the things work together.
