View manipulation

Hi everyone.

(Warning: Potential nerd / n00b ahead! :yes:)

For a while now I’ve been searching for more information on view manipulation. I guess the fact that i’ve been able to code this at all is testimony to the fact that the Blender API is getting better.

This script uses some standard functionality mostly, but included is a feature I feel blender should’ve had a long time ago… view saving / restoring. But hé, what’s the point in just hoping for a feature… So I decided to code it.

The implementation is very crude - I’m not very good at python, but I’m learning fast!
Currently I would say that this is in the first version / beta stage.

The final version should record all views in an array type and allow for dynamic ‘browsing’ of views by hitting a back / previous button
