Drag and Drop a Camera onto the view to set the Camera to use for OpenGL view in Acrobat Reader.

Note: This will automatically do a rendering of your scene using the settings from your current Render Settings for the document. This may take some time if you have a complex rendering setup.

Render View Image

When enabled it will render a view of the Camera and use that as the background image of the 3D View. This image will be shown before the 3D view is loaded into the PDF page.

Use Preview Render

If enabled it will use a faster Preview rendering to create the render for the view, but only when editing in C4D. When you export out to a PDF it will use the settings from your Render Settings for the scene.


Include the rendered Alpha channel for the image.

Render Camera Preview

Pressing this button will render a view of what the camera sees and place the image in the background. This overrides the Background Image link from the Object Tab.

Clear camera Preview

This will clear the Preview from the 3D view, reverting back to using the Background Image or Fill color as set in the Object Tab.
