View Manager

This module allows storing and retrieving camera settings for viewer windows to be able to switch easily between different view presets.

ViewManager_capture

This module allows the user to assign up to four different camera settings for one or more viewer windows to four buttons for easy switching between the views.

Instantiate:

Right-click on the background in the "Project View" window, select "Create Object …" and choose "Local / ViewManager".

On start-up the available viewer windows are queried and put into the list at "Choose Viewer(s)". If you want to update this list later, restart the module (Note: This will erase all defined views!).

Store a viewer state:

1. Select the viewers for which you want to save the settings in the "Choose Viewer(s)" list.

2. [Optional]: If you want to assign a name to this setting, write it into the field "Name for new view".

3. Press one of the buttons in "Define view".

Retrieve a viewer state:

Press a button in "Set view"

Undo:

It is not a real "undo". It restores the settings before the last pressed "Set view" button.

Hints:

1. If you use the "Pin" functionality for the "Set view" buttons, those buttons will always be accessible in the "Properties" region, even if the "ViewManager" module is not selected:

2. The "Perspective" or "Orthographic" mode of the camera is also taken into account.
