> - Rotation only: camera on a tripod, rotating around a fixed point (if

> - Translation only: walking sideways keeping the camera pointed forward
> (e.g. not circling)
> - Translation only: walking towards the scene
> - General motion when the scene is planar (e.g. camera keeps a big
> billboard in view and only the billboard)
> - Circle strafing around an object; camera is fixated on one part of
