“get_view” returns and optionally prints out the current view information in a format which can be embedded into a command script and can be used in subsequent calls to “set_view”.
If a log file is currently open, get_view will not write the view matrix to the screen unless the “output” parameter is 2.
output = 0: output matrix to screen
output = 1: do not Output matrix to screen
output = 2: force output to screen even if log file is open
output = 3: return formatted string instead of a list
Contents of the view matrix:
The camera always looks down -Z with its +X left and its +Y down.
Therefore, in the default view, model +X is to the observer's right, +Y is upward, and +Z points toward the observer.
