ProNavigator Houdini

A great tool to do a 2d zoom/pan in the viewport without altering the view’s perspective. Great for zooming in to shots that are tracked. See video for details.


To get this plugin simply make a donation mentioning ProNavigator, any amount is fine, and I’ll send you the plugin. It’s quite well documented opensource and written in Python.
