Does anyone know how to save/export camera setting from one file and import it into another file?
This function is really helpful for me and for those who want to seperately organise 2d document and visualization document in 1 project.

Thanks

Camera setting, as in position, angle, sun set up etc: select the camera tool, settings dialogue, Path..., Display Options > make sure you show the cameras.

Now select the camera in floor plan, copy and paste to the other file.


If you mean render settings: Document > Creative Imaging > Photorendering Settings
Use the pull down menu for Scene and Select and Manage Scenes.

Save you scene and export it and import that using the same process in the other file.


If you mean 3D document settings and / or view settings. I don't think you can export those. You could set them up in your template for future projects.

ah, ok.
Thanks a lot. I just mean about having the same view angle from one archicad file to another. So, copying camera from floorplan is the solution.
