Camera from Design View?

Recommended Posts

Can we create a camera from the design view and vice versa rather than making a viewport or dragging a renderworks Camera?

If not maybe it should be on the wish list

What function of the camera are you wanting?

If its easy access to the view in future try using saved views. (the little menu on the view bar with a piece of paper with a mountain on it is the saved views menu or use View > Save View. The Saved View menu or the Navigation palette then make it easy to switch between views

You can use Hyperlinks (Dims/Notes) in 2013 to quickly access saved views if you want to create a more presentable way of navigating your drawings.

If you want a design view from a camera select the camera click display camera view on object info then deselect the camera and you will be left in the cameras view and free to move around or create a saved view or viewport without affecting the camera.

Otherwise i'm not sure if you can turn a view into a camera perhaps others will know

Hope thats helpful!

I am looking to do whatever you said in the last line of your message, I do know of the other options.

This option is avaliable in C4D, it is a nice option.
