We present a method for the definition of multiple views in 3D interfaces for computational steering. The method uses the concept of a point-based parametrizable camera object. This concept enables a user to create and configure multiple views on his custom 3D interface in an intuitive graphical manner. Each view can be coupled to objects present in the interface, parametrized to (simulation) data, or adjusted through direct manipulation or user defined camera controls. Although our focus is on 3D interfaces for computational steering, we think that the concept is valuable for many other 3D graphics applications as well.
