Set View

set_view sets viewing information for the current scene, including the rotation matrix, position, origin of rotation, clipping planes, and the orthoscopic flag.

This command is extremely useful for making movies. One may set up the scene to be rendered, then save the exact orientation, with respect to the camera, of the scene using, the Get_View command. The output from the Get_View command may then be used by the set_view command to restore the orientation of the scene.
