When i export scene camera is very wide. When I open scene in studio, everything looks fine. Only thing I found ou which can correc camera is Film Back. I have to correctit to W=0.032. Then is camera same as in C4D. Do I something wrong, or is it a bug?

There's a previously-reported bug where the perspective will be off (i.e. film back is wrong) when the output resolution has a portrait aspect ratio - does this sound like the same thing you're seeing?

Maybe. But perspektive is wrong ragrdless of aspect ratio. I set resolution 1800x1200 and 1280x720. Perspective was wrong in both cases. I opened scene in studio corrected film back and persp was fine.

Do you use "write mxs" for export?

This seems to export the "Active View" and not the "Render View", which is very inconvenient for network use.

You're right - this is an oversight - I'll make sure it uses the Render View resolution when just writing MXS files in the future. About the original issue Spekoun, thanks - I was able to duplicate this on 1.8 CTP using your 1800x1200 example. I didn't dig out the old code to figure out why, but lots of things have been tweaked here since the release and it is working fine on my current code.

I am also experiencing problems with the camera when rendering with the new 1.8 plugin. I use a camera in portrait mode (21x30 cm 200 dpi). Attached is a test file I did that shows how much more cropped the rendered image is compared to the camera in the viewport. Same problem when using the new "render region"-tag. The selected region is much more cropped when rendered.

I am using Cinema R11 on Mac OSX. I am rendering directly from Cinema using the "Selected render view" (R).

Sitting also on Mac and Cinema R11 with 1.8 plugin. As "Tennet" says I have the same problem. This just gives me the problem when Im going to render an interior but good with reference points so i can zoom out to get the right/same perspective.

Also using the function "Selected render view"
