I have been experimenting with inserting a collada file into an ibooks author file, via the 3D widget.  I use SketchUp and Modo to create the textured object, but I am having trouble getting anything other than a 'tumbling' view of the object in ibooks.  I want to set a camera in the scene, and be able to see that POV (point of view) from within ibooks.  I would also like to animate the camera, so I can create a controlled, first-person walk-through of the scene.  So far, I haven't had any luck.  If anyone else has sorted through some of this, please chime in here.
