Rollout on Main Toolbar

I write this post in Scripts Wanted section:

There is two good scripts:

1. Render size presets
http://www.keyframesandcode.com/code/development/maxscript/render-size-p...

and

2. Change render engines:
http://www.scriptspot.com/3ds-max/scripts/change-render-engines

Both are very usable and interesting scripts but with some trouble. First appear on big long toolbar and occupy many of lacking space. Second is on floating window and sometimes is hard to find place where to put it. And rendering size presets of first script is more flexible and comfortable. I thought - maybe it is possible to do ONE mixed script for fast editing on Main Toolbar in compact rollout mode? Without any additional unnecessary settings. Something like there: http://i.imgur.com/5cd5eK7.jpg

Also will be nice to add

Also will be nice to add different render preset for some renderers.
You can add dropdown list for scene cameras to pick view for render
and one more d-list for the preset.
By the way, good job Oli [+1].
Cheers!

Hi Kimoratta and bariazy,

I have added as you suggested. The script will now add all available renderers to a drop down list and change to the one you select. as well as show whet the current active renderer is.

Yeah, try to add a droplist to identify which renders have installed on max and list them to choose, as barigazy said.
