Rookie question about camera angles
I'm new to 3D animation and Cinema 4D, and am just trying to get a 3D text/logo project working.
Basically, I'd like to know how to tilt the front perspective view camera, as any time I change it to perspective view - after setting all coordinates to 0, the angle still seems a tad skewed. I'd just like the front view slightly tilted downwards, to accentuate the 3D effect, but without any other tilts in any other directions.

One thing to note is the "Front Camera" is actually an orthographic projection ( no perspective ), while the perspective camera is in perspective, which you can change the amount of lens distortion by changing the focal length of the virtual camera. You can also create a perspective camera, then zero out all the channels of the coordinates for the camera, and then adjust the focal length to flatten the perspective out as needed. Or simply adj one rotation channel using the coordinates manager to get the look your going for.
