Machinima controls

I’ve been messing around in custom games and with the machinima controls jn particular while waiting for the dailies to reset and I’ve come across something that doesn’t seem to do anything as far as I can tell so with machinima controls enabled if you hold X and press right on the d-pad it brings up your coordinates and at the end it says [normal] but if you go into free cam by holding X and UP on the d-pad for a few seconds and then hold X and press LEFT on the d-pad [normal] will change to [pan-cam] but as far as I can tell this doesn’t do anything it doesn’t change how the camera controls or give it any new functions as far as I can tell so I’m just confused as to why this function even exists if all it does is change some text on screen is that all it does or is there something I’m missing
