Screenshot Tool

Generate and save image of current camera view


The Screenshot Tool generates and saves an image of the current camera view. The dimensions of the screenshot can be set independently of the dimensions of the actual viewport. This allows for full control over the resolution and aspect ratio of the image without being limited to the resolution of the monitor. The Screenshot Tool also allows control over the camera field of view.
