When creating interior views you often want to place the cameras as close to the wall as possible to show as much of the room as possible, but without accidentally zoom out through the wall. This plugin places the camera 1 cm away from whatever is straight behind it when the plugin is activated. The distance can also be adjusted from the plugin's menu.
