If I have a camera at 0/0/0 of the x/y/z and its heading is unknown.

How do I make it point in the direction of 1/0/0 quickly?

  • $\begingroup$ Rotate it 90 degrees, R X 90 $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I updated the question to clarify. The camera is located a 0/0/0 but the direction in which it points ("heading") is unknown. I want it to point towards 1/0/0. $\endgroup$

The fastest way if you haven't applied any transforms on the camera is to reset the rotation with AltR to 0/0/0 and then rotate it 90° on the X and -90° on the Z, RX 90, RZ -90.

If you have changed the transforms and can't reset it to 0/0/0, you can use exact measurements by using the transform section of the properties panel or the object tab in the properties view to rotate it 90° on the X axis, -90° on the Z axis and on Y.
