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!
You can render using OpenGL, by going to Info > Header > Render > OpenGL Render Image:
Or by clicking on the icons in 3D view > Header:
