Default playblast

hey hey, is there anyway to make playblast look decent, it always looks crap and plays back the scene at some offset angle, never straight on like the camera. it would be nice as i am playing with dynamics and its a quick and easy way to see what the scene looks like

ps on a slightly(on not so slightly) unrelated topic, the reason a use playblast is because the dynamics get errors which really slow down the playback, but using playblast shows the dynamics as they should do over the whole scene. anyway to stop the errors from causing the slow playback? other than making the dynamics work right. lol

i think i solved the problem with playback, i was getting the error "nucleus evalution skipped, frame change to large" but i was playing back in real speed, changing the play back to play every frame seems to work just fine. still the playblast is looking crap though. lol

Yeah, with dynamics you need to set playback to every frame, otherwise it'll skip frames and mess up the sim.
