For my Star Battle game i am going to use 3d models Print|Screen into .png
It would be easy if i just wanted top down view on it.
However that would be to easy ! <img src="smileys/smiley17.gif" border="0" align="middle" />
Instead i want the view to be slightly angled.
Here is my idea:
Take lots of Print|Screen .png's from diffrent sides of the 3D model, then change the animation to the current angle.
Because of different screen sizes etc. I will [Pin] invisible objects around the Ship and use their angles to determine the right Animation.

What do you think?
Would it require to much Download time?
How many angles do you think i need to make it look Smooth ?
