I am manipulating 3D CAD models while using MATLAB's lighting features and need get the 2D projection at my given view angle with the current lighting and material properties.
I have been able to do this quickly and easily with getframe, but am limited to 8-bit data. I need at least 16-bit resolution for my application. Is there a way to trick MATLAB into giving me 16-bit data from the screen?
As background: my plotted model is displaying 16-bit color information and has 16-bit data in the object handle. I have tried using getframe, print, hardcopy, as well as import_fig from the file exchange.
