    Hello, I’ve tried to submit this request via Bug report, but I get an error message when I do so. This is why I’m posting it here:

    I want to batch relink and render thumbnails of a lot of max files that already contain cameras that would be perfect for thumbnails in project manager.
    Now when I check ‘Render Default scene view’ in the ‘Render Thumbnails Preferences’, It still renders the Top-Front-Right view which is default.
    Even though there is a camera in the scene that is active when I open the max file.
    Did I understand that checkbox wrong or is this a bug?
    Would it be possible to add “First Cam in Cam array” to the listbox in the options menu? Please also check out the Link below.

    Thanks
    -Robert

    Add this script as post-open script for changing default scene view

    if PostScriptInfo != undefined and pathConfig.appendPath maxFilePath maxFilename == PostScriptInfo.MaxFile and PostScriptInfo.BatchMode =="Render" and viewport.GetCamera() == undefined do (
    	local cam = cameras[1] 
    	if cam != undefined do
    		viewport.SetCamera cam
    )

    Are there any boxes that need to be checked for this to work?  I can’t seem to get it to work for some reason.  This script should just be a .ms file, correct?

    Yes – this is a .ms file.
    I can check your script. Please attach it here.

    I can’t seem to attach it directly to this response, so here’s a dropbox link for what I’m using.

    Thanks!  Love the product.

    All right.
    If you have a problem with changing a view to camera please generate a bug report.
