I am using two viewports, one with a render display filter, one displaying solid for editing. I want the viewport of the render view to mimic the rotations of my view that I'm editing in. Is there a way to parent my views?


You can use a camera view. The perspective "camera" is not accessible.

  1. Create a camera.
  2. Set both views to that camera.
  3. In the editing viewport press N to open the properties panel, then check Lock Camera to View.

When you manipulate the view in the viewport, you will not exit the camera, but change its transformation.

    $\begingroup$ Thanks, for the work around. It works but the rendering border is a little annoying to look at $\endgroup$ – Mr Tom Dec 9 '18 at 22:51
