Create Camera From View
Target camera whose
field of view matches an active Perspective viewport. At the same
time, it changes the viewport to a
Camera viewport for
the new camera object, and makes the new camera the current selection.
Alternatively, if the
scene already contains a camera and the camera is selected, then
Create Camera From View does not create a new camera from the view.
Instead, it simply matches the selected camera to the active, Perspective
viewport. This functionality was adopted from the Match Camera to
View command, which is now available only as an assignable main user
interface shortcut (see
NoteCreate Camera From

- Leaving the viewport active, on the Views
menu choose Create Camera From View or press Ctrl+C.
3ds Max creates a new camera, matching its
view to that of the Perspective viewport, and then switches the
Perspective viewport to a Camera viewport, showing the view from
the new camera.
