BTW, you might be interested in this script. This is the basis for a script which will generate many nice still images of an object plus the necessary images for the quicktime 3d view I believe you are familiar with. I can set 6 cameras at the desired location and point them in all 6 directions. Those cameras will have the proper lens size, 16 if I remember? Then, I can also have 4 or 5 other cameras with 25 or 35mm lenses placed around the model as well.
After I get this all set up and the script is in place, I can simply render an animation that is say 10 frames long. I will produce the 6 necessary images for GoCubic plus 4 or 5 still frames of the model from different angles. This is an awesome ability. I can now model all evening. When I am done, I can simply hit ANIM. When I wake up the next day, I have 10 high res images all named and placed in the proper directory for me. I just have to run GoCubic on some of them to get the 3d mov file.
I no longer have to spend hours rendering and waiting for the files to get created, then saving the jpg and switching cameras and repeating. I used to waste so much time doing this. Now I will be able to kick it all out with the press of one button. Very very cool…
