Entity Description

A monitor that renders the view from a given point_camera entity. When a func_monitor is created, the surface in which the view from the point_camera will be displayed from must be assigned to a material that uses the special value "_rt_Camera" in its "$basetexture" property (such as the dev/dev_combinemonitor* and dev/dev_tvmonitor* textures). It is also a good idea to Justify to Fit in the Face Edit Sheet texture dialog for the combinemonitor surface so the camera view isn't cut off.

Func_monitor entities can only display one point_camera view at any one time (unless you reprogram this entity in some way).
