Hi,
Is it possible to crop while exporting jpg and png images using Ovito?
Thanks

Hi,

there is an auto-crop function that you could use after you rendered the active viewport, see attached screenshot. Is that what you mean?

Yes...exactly... its available for only a single image.
But it would be a great help if we can have this feature in Render Settings where it can be implemented in 'n' number of pictures.
Thanks

In that case, you could just edit the output image size in the Render Settings, see attached screenshot.
Also, note that you can change the camera view to "Preview Mode", when you click on the current viewport's caption in the top left corner (also marked in the screenshot).
This way you can get a preview of what your rendered image will look like and still zoom, turn or translate your structure until you have the desired viewing angle.

For the record, here's the documentation about rendering images. http://ovito.org/manual/usage.rendering.html
