              Need to activate:
              sv_cheats 1
              thirdperson (maybe)

              dota_camera_distance x (zoom in/out) (1134 is default)
              cam_command (toggles modes)

              c_thirdpersonshoulder 0
              c_thirdpersonshoulderaimdist 120
              c_thirdpersonshoulderdist 40

              there are alot of others that start with dota_camera_(stuff)

              play around with them all till you figure out stuff.
              + whatever others are saying

              this stuff only works in practice games and replays.

                    There should be some client commands to allow you to change the camera yaw soon - maybe in the next update. Setting dota_camera_disable_yaw to 0 will allow you to rotate your view with mouse_5.

                    It's still a work in progress though so it might not work exactly how you want yet.
