Can't put a fully interactive viewport in a separate window/dialog - the 4/3/2/1 that max allows you to see by default are the ones you'll have to work with.

If you just want a bitmap of the viewport's view, see:

thanks ZeBoxx2, i could solve my problem by the moment. but there is any way to get the bitmap from one of the other viewports, not from active one???

thanks again.

nope - but you could temporary switch to the other viewport using 'viewport.activeviewport = N', then grab the bitmap, then switch back

Hi guy,

just made an example on how to capture viewport using .net and I also put some
example on how to use color matrix in maxscript , since there not to many info on this
subject !

I think that it could run faster, if the captured bitmap could stay in memory instead of
writing it to the disk, if you have any idea on how to do this , let me know !

Ho, that was easy, the image was already in memory so I just used that instead :shrug:
try to put winamp in front of the capturing viewport, it's funny :-)

the tricky part is to get the object in , but I think it support 3ds file format so maybe
there's something to do with this !
