I've been interested in a long time in utilizing 3D modeling programs to create nice 2D graphics. I've heard that some of these programs can save a model to a 2D image nicely, but I'm wondering more about mass image-capturing with them at the moment.
Do any 3D modeling programs offer the ability to easily capture an image of a model from a specified angle and distance that you can just type in, or coordinates and direction? I'm looking for anything that can be used to rapidly take snapshots from any point of view, and preferably has an intuitive naming convension such as "name_37,13" as opposed to "image1", "image2" and so on, so that I don't have to rename them all after. I'm asking for a lot here, aren't I?
Also, if anyone can use such a program and wants a few bucks for doing it for me, that route works too. The graphics I want don't have to be anything professional-like, just half-decent, and unless the process is simple enough, probably just a single model.
