The target parameters (only available for Servers) allow changing the camera’s target position in the 3D space without moving the camera itself. The output will show another detail of the 3D space and the perspective will be affected as well (as long as you do not work in Orthogonal Projection Mode).
The output is always 16 units wide, the height is calculated by the aspect ratio.
A 4:3 display is 16 units wide and 12 units high, a 16:9 display is 16 units wide and 9 units high.

Example:
The target position is changed from the default position (XYZ = 0,0,0) to (XYZ = -4.7,-1.3,0).
