Like the topic says, I'd like to be able to customize the view of the 3D view.

1) Switch off the GRID in 3D view.
2) Custom background color.

The reason is I can get much cleaner overlay quality when I make recordings if the grid is not activated. See the attached image.

I use two monitors for World Machine, one for the node setup and the other for a full screen preview of the terrain. I can have both monitors set up as picture in picture, where I'd key the background color of the 3D preview window. The grid disturbs how clean the image will be.

In some cases, such as having snow on the terrain, the white would aslo be keyed. If I could set up a custom background color, such as a bright magenta or something else absurd which there's absolutely no chance would appear in the terrain, I could get a clean key without the problem of parts of the terrain go missing in the PiP setup.
