How to make a circular window?

Hello! I apologize for the bad English is not my native language.
I would like to make a window with circular shape as shown in this picture with a frame in a circular format. but the frame as you can see, it is not clear as the image of the rectangular window. I do not know how to do because they only know how to use edge loop horizontally and vertically. show two images below. I'm new, and like a lot of CG and VFX and would like to learn from you all. very grateful to everyone.

I'm confused, you want to make a hole in the building's wall that is circular?

This would be a good tool to make the initial hole.

I'm not sure a plugin is necessary.

For something more complicated than 8 verts, it might be.

Ah yes, you're probably right.

The verts don't have to be a perfect hole as they are hidden by the frame.

But you could always just use a Boolean to subtract the hole with a cylinder.

Are there any scripts to circularize a group of verts/edges? Basically like spherize tool in Blender? Now that would be handy. Cool not to have to worry about how many verts and a cyl. Just make it a circle, In Blender it is make selection Shift Alt S, mouse drag, done.

And since we are on the subject, how hard would it be to program something like that with a mel script?

You can do this now in 2014 come to think of it. Using the new shrink wrap function in the Nex toolset.

Not sure what made him to remove it from CreativeCrash when it's such a great and
useful little script!
