How can I save and restore the camera?

I’d like to restore the current view in skecthup to the way it was before my extension moved the camera around. I naively thought that this would work:

model = Sketchup.active_model
view = model.active_view
save_cam =
# do some stuff the changes the view = save_cam

But it does not restore the view. I find I have to save the individual values for the camera, like eye, target, up, fov, etc. What am I missing?

You are right, you need to save these values…

Excellent, thanks.

save_cam =,, cam.up, cam.perspective?, cam.fov)

works perfectly.
