Is it possible to save a custom Arnold RenderView Layout preset for startup?

Hey Folks,

I am working with MtoA 5.0.0 and when I start the Arnold RenderView I always get the basic window and I need to enable all the things I want to use (e.g. snapshot bar at the bottom, enable "show render tiles", enable "show debug shading icon and resizing the Arnold RenderView window).

Is there a way of saving custom presets and loading them, maybe even automatic on every startup (or like in the Render Settings where it lets you export and import specific presets for settings and AOVs)?

No, there's no presets.

You can set some options from a script:

arnoldRenderView -mode open
arnoldRenderView -opt "Show Render Tiles" "True";
arnoldRenderView -opt "Show Debug Shading icon" "True";


Show Render Tiles and Show Debug Shading icon are saved in your Maya user preferences, so it shouldn't be necessary to set them
