Render View

Component Index > Ladybug > 5 | Extra > Render View

Use this component to render Rhino views and save them to your hard drive. This component is fully-functional with both Rhino Render and V-Ray for Rhino. Other rendering plugins may still work but are not fully supported yet.
This component is particularly useful if you are trying to create animations of Grasshopper geometry and want to automate the capturing of views.

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
_fileName_fileNameThe file name that you would like the image to be saved as. Note that, for animations, you want to make sure that each saved images has a different filename otherwise the previous image will be overwritten by each successive image.Goo
folder_folder_The folder into which you would like to write the image file. This should be a complete file path to the folder. If no folder is provided, the images will be written to C:/Ladybug/Capturedviews/.Goo
viewNames_viewNames_The Rhino viewport name which you would like to render. Acceptable inputs include "Perspective", "Top", "Bottom", "Left", "Right", "Front", "Back" or any view name that you have already saved within the Rhino file (note that you do not need to input quotations). If no text is input here, the default will be an image of the active viewport (or the last viewport in which you navigated).Goo
imageWidth_imageWidth_The width of the image that you would like to render in pixels. If no value is provided here, the component will set the width to that of the active Rhino viewport on your screen.Goo
imageHeight_imageHeight_The height of the image that you would like to render in pixels. If no value is provided here, the component will set the height to that of the active Rhino viewport on your screen.Goo
keepAspectR_keepAspectR_Set to "True" to keep the aspect ratio of the viewport in the images that you save. By default, this is set to "False" if you have connected an imageHeight_ but will override this input to ensure correct aspect ratio if set to "True".Goo
saveAlpha_saveAlpha_Set to "True" to have an alpah image saved next to the RGB rendering and set to "False" to have only have the RGB image saved. The default is set to "False" to only save the RGB.Goo
_capture_captureSet to "True" to render the image and save it to your hard drive.Goo
