Render the Viewport

I’m using Blender to create a comic. I’ve planned it out so that I don’t need to render at all. Instead, I’ll be relying on blender’s internal renderer and the smart layering of textures.

So, i’d like to know if there’s a way to render the viewport; as a direct replication of what I see (not a true render); and as a real render, where the viewport is taken to be the camera.

You could render the viewport with the small camera symbol in 3dview and the clapperbord for animation.

Cheers, mib.
