Is there some way to render exactly whats in the camera view in the 3D view? By that I mean just like a screenshot really, all paths, lamps, and cameras, just like things look in the camera view. The reason I can't just take a screenshot is that I need an animation and it would be too cumbersome to take 1000+ screenshots!

  • $\begingroup$ You mean render exactly what you see in Camera View in Object Mode and Solid viewport shading? If so, then you could do an OpenGL render by going to Render > OpenGL Image $\endgroup$ Oct 27, 2014 at 15:13

You can render using OpenGL, by going to Info > Header > Render > OpenGL Render Image:

Or by clicking on the icons in 3D view > Header:
