How do I move the ArcGIS Pro camera (in 3D)? More importantly, how do I do it programmatically?

I'm trying to animate flying drone trajectories.

I have a Lon Lat Altitude (xyz) dataset (simple imported text file w/ 3 columns) that I've been able to (somewhat) animate:


But the camera is stationary fixed above the feature.

I need a fly through w/ the camera position matching/paralleling (& moving with) the flight path/trajectory. I want the camera to be the drone.

I've been trying to find documentation/sample code but no luck. Any suggestions would be helpful esp. where to find.

I'm using ArcGIS Pro 2.2.0

    Have you tried using the Camera object of ArcPy? – PolyGeo Jul 13 '18 at 18:36

This blog post, with code demonstrates how to step through a featureclass of point locations, updating the camera with the ProSDK. You could probably modify the code to iterate through your list instead.
