Declaration Section

#include <vtkActor.h>
#include <vtkCamera.h>
namespace
{
void SaveSceneToFile(std::string fileName,
                     vtkActor *actor,
                     vtkCamera *camera);
}

Implementation Section

                     vtkActor *actor,
                     vtkCamera *camera)
{
// Actor
//  Position, orientation, origin, scale, usrmatrix, usertransform
//Camera
//  FocalPoint, Position, ViewUp, ViewAngle, ClippingRange
  std::ofstream saveFile(fileName, std::ofstream::out);
  double vector[3];
  double scalar;

  camera->GetFocalPoint(vector);
  saveFile << "Camera:FocalPoint "
           << vector[0] << ", "
