Rotate orthographic top-down camera around Y

Hey I have a camera which films down from a top-down view. Is it possible to rotate the camera around the Y axes? I want it to rotate 90 degree on button click. orthCamera.rotation.y = Math.PI / 2 does not work

Do you mean like so?

Be aware that you have to modulate z because of gimbal lock.

Ah I see, yep thats working. Tho there’s another issue. Orbit controls gets updated each frame and it is rotating it back to default.

Maybe i have to rotate my scene to get what I want

I’m afraid it does not make sense to use a controls class and then transform the camera manually at the same time. It’s best if you stick to one approach to avoid undefined side effects.
