    In ArcScene and ArcGlobe there is a very useful setting called Viewfield Angle that lets you adjust the angle of view, or scope of the virtual camera.  There is also a useful window called View Settings that allows the user to specify the precise location of the virtual camera.

     

    Please add the Viewfield Angle parameter and View Settings window to ArcGIS Pro.

    Here is how it appears in ArcGlobe.  Note the Viewfield Angle setting on the left near the bottom.

    Note:

    • This is like zooming on a real camera where the camera stays in one place and the zoom lens changes the field of view by changing the angle of view.
    • This is NOT the same as zoom in ArcMap or Pro, which only moves the virtual camera forward and backward, but doesn't change the angle of view.
    • This is also not the same as direction of view which only changes the direction that the virtual camera is pointing.
