render outputwidth: 640 outputheight: 480 outputfile: (finalfile)

this works fine, but there are 2 issues which I am trying to solve.

1. When the quick render window pops up it is half off screen on the left.
2. When the render window is done (which is hard to tell when it is halfway off the screen) I want to be able to close the window .

I would look in the maxscript reference for this, but for some reson I am getting a lot of webpage not found errors :)

Thanks,

*Create your own bitmap of the desired size.
*Display it
*Render INTO the own bitmap using the to: option.
*Once you are done, close the bitmap

(
theBitmap = bitmap 640 480
display theBitmap
render to:theBitmap outputfile:"c:/temp/testrender.tga"
close theBitmap
)


There is no control over the placement of the VFB. If it appears misaligned, your video card drivers might have been configured incorrectly. NVIDIA for example has lots of desktop tools and settings to control where windows appear on the desktop. Normally, yhe VFB should be centered to the Windows desktop automatically.
