I use the option "Auto Depth" in "Interface->View Manipulation" to improve camera rotation, so I don't have to press "." on the numpad all the time.
Now when I'm working with empty images as background images I make them non selectable in the outliner. Still when I rotate the camera it picks the depth under the pointer and uses the empty image as rotation pivot instead of my current view as pivot.
I want the camera rotation to behave like I rotated while clicking on emtpy space in the view. Is that somehow possible?
