Hi rsodre,

First of all sorry for the delay.
And secondly sorry to bring you bad news, since picture viewer is not exposed in our API.
The only way to get a picture is to render yourself the current scene using BaseDocument.RenderDocument.

Cheers,
Maxime

Too bad :(
Many people are asking me to update SyphonC4D to send frames from the Picture Viewer.
Would be really nice!

Hey Maxime,

Kind of stealing the topic here but... Are there any plans to expose it in the API in the near future? The undocumented / unexposed API is the bane of existence for a lot developers I am talking with.

Thanks!
