Default setting a pose with the camera -> try dummy objects - 10-31-2005, 12:50 PM

If I understand you correctly, you're trying to name a location/orientation that a camera can then be returned to?

In that case, you don't want to pose the camera (which is a reasonable thing to have tried).

Instead, try using a "dummy object."

When you are adding objects, click on the "more controls >>" button.

THen you get a set of controsl, including "drop dummy at camera." That creates a "dummy object" called "Dummy." Then, in your code, you can say


Hope this helps!

Just adding on to what Randy has posted, to get the same camera point of view as when you dropped the dummy object, try using the camera.setpointofviewto(Dummy) method.
