The title says it all. I have objects selected and I'd like to render a frame from a different viewport (perspective then camera and so on) without unintentionally selecting an object or deselecting the ones I already have selected. I know I can click on the grey area in the title bar of each viewport but I need the keyboard shortcut for this.

I ran into this problem with Maya and it turned out to be as simple as hitting the spacebar while hovering the cursor over the viewport – not so in C4D-R13

Anyone?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks, but that brings the viewports to a single pane view. I need to stay in a four pane setup and switch between which is active.

Ah ... sorry. Not sure if this is what you're after (editor render or PV render?), but you don't have to make a viewport window active to render it's editor view. Just place the cursor in the view and hit Ctrl+R. That view will render even if another view is highlighted. No clicking required.

the hover the cursor and hit the spacebar works here (R13), it also swaps the tool but Option(Alt)-spacebar changes the widow focus without swapping tools. You can also Option(Alt)-click on the windows without selecting/deselecting objects
