Like RenderWindow but with specified resolution

There's no way to specify part of a view to render, a 'real' render with your set resolution that you can save? I believe in the Max version it's called cropping.

The command you are looking for is _renderinwindow

Thanks!

Hmm, first simple test I did seemed to do what I wanted, second didn't seem to. I want it to pay attention to the output resolution specified in Brazil, so that I can render out a fix for a small area of a 9K wide shot.

AFAIK, it's supposed to do what you want. If it's not doing it, it's probably yet another bug.

Hi Jim,

Another option would be to use NewFloatingViewport and set the aspect ratio in object properties. Then you can render to viewport size in settings with that one active. This will give you more control for re-renders vs the dragging of another window. 

Hi Brian,

But is RenderInWindow supposed to do what I want? It seems to only render at the size of the window I pick.

I don't believe it is supposed to use a set resolution. That's why I mentioned this alternate approach which I have used to control the re-render. If you use a saved view in the floating viewport as well, it can also help save time while tweaking. If the Max version is different in this respect, I am unaware. 

That's not really practical when you have to do a rendering bigger than your desktop.

Buy a 60" monitor? :)

Have you tried "RenderBlowUp"?

Speaking of render blowup... A couple years ago I'd asked that RenderBlowup would change its behavior. Currently it just outputs the tiny region fit to new window. But to be more practical, it should create an image in size of normal render, leaving the rendered region in correct position according to full image. Then have settings for a background color to fill remainder of image for easy positioning & masking in photochop...
Thx... j

Never heard of it, it doesn't auto-complete for me either. It does indeed seem to be what I want, what Jonah said about making it easier to "register" would be good.
