Entity Description

The view of this camera entity can be output in realtime to a func_monitor's monitor surface, or alternatively (using info_camera_link) to any named brush entity using the correct monitor texture. Active cameras require one render texture each. The mod default total number of render textures is one, so unless it is used in a mod with an increased limit, only one camera can be active at any time.
