żIs there any plugin that will allow to transfer an object point of view (inside modeler) to a camera in layout?

Thankyou
Gus

It's not even possible to read Modeler's camera through LWSDK..

Just thinking out loud: Maybe do a screen capture in Modeler of the view you want; save that to a .jpg using Photoshop or whatever; use the front projection tools in Layout to get everything set up to match the screen cap. Haven't tried this, but it might work.

I was thinking the same thing. You could user Worley's Camera Match (I think that's what it's called) to set up the camera angle quickly.

I think this should do it: Make four points in the perspective view and move them to the four corners of the perspective view port. Make a copy of these points and, in a different view port, move them further away from the camera and then drag them to the corners again. Use the points for each corner in turn to make two point polygons. Select each polygon and scale it up with the mode set to Action Center Selection. Where the lines intersect is where the camera should be.
