Default Okay this is pretty bad

Hello all,

I feel pretty lame for asking this but what is the best way to take wireframe images as jpegs. This is so I can post work for the Monthly competition...

In your render window Goto Render->Snaphot->(Select your view). Then after it renders, goto File->Save Image.

I think thats it.

Hope that helps

I usually hit the "Print Scrn" button on the keyboard. This takes a screen grab and saves it like a "copy" command. Then, I open Photoshop, Ctrl + N to make a new image, Ctrl + V to paste the screen grab into the Photoshop file. Crop and resize to my liking.

sorry, I thought he meant an *animated* wireframe. For that: Playblast or hardware render buffer.
