How can I extract the ViewPoint from a graphic once I have found a nice
orientation using RealTime3D or the simpler method recently discovered by
Jens-Peer Kuska? (Congratulations to Jens for finding this see [mg28524].)
In detail I want to do the following.
Use RealTime3D, or more probably Jens method, to make a graphic that can be
Use the mouse to rotate the 3D graphic until I get a nice view
Find out the ViewPoint corresponding to my nice view
Paste this ViewPoint back into the original graphic
Redraw the original graphic with my nice view and all the options available.
This would avoid the use of the 3D ViewPoint Selector which I find
difficult to use because I cannot imagine my graphic in the cube provided
there. By using NotebookCreate in a small variation of Jens method the
real time graphic is placed in a new notebook. This is getting similar to
the 3D ViewPoint Selector. Presumably, Wolfram will eventually put our
graphics into the 3D ViewPoint Selector so that this process can be automated.
Thanks in advance for your responses.
