An orientation of the XYZ coordinate system where the X axis is the horizontal and Z is the depth of the scene.

This orientation is often used by animators (and games developers) who have evolved from the 2D world of vertical (Y) and horizontal (X) to include movement toward or away from the camera (Z).

Contrast with Z-up world. See also coordinate system.
