I wrote a tool for stereograpic preview creation:
Works all fine, but I am not happy with the viewport capture functions. I used the script from the how-to in the maxscript help file and modified it a bit.
Is there an easy way to create a viewport capture image that is not distorted? Like with the “render()” command you can specify the camera and the width and height of the image. The viewport capturing is more difficult to get right.
preview_name = sequence_name anim_bmp_left = bitmap widthP.value heightP.value filename:preview_name format "File Preview Name and Path: % " preview_name select leftPEyeCam max vpt camera for t = startFrameP.value to endFrameP.value do ( sliderTime = t gw.setPos 0 0 widthP.value heightP.value dib = gw.getViewportDib() copy dib anim_bmp_left runSave = save anim_bmp_left frame:t close anim_bmp_left ) gc()
