Create / grab out Viewport into a new window

Hello,

I just want to create a viewport in a new window. So there are the original four viewports in 3dsmax (left, front, top, perspective), and i want to create a new window, and make an another viewport into the new window.

Is there solution to solve this viewport cloneing? It would be a really great thing, we can put this viewport into an other monitor, or separate from max.

Thanks answers in advance!

well you have a lot of events

well you have a lot of events for the imgTag and could probably cheat some interaction into live.
but
by scripting alone you can never make a fully intendant viewport, you'll always have to access one of the normal VPs change them, grab em, and represent it in yours.
you could zoom in/out, select/deselect objects, and that would be about it for interactivity. you cant check if the mouse is over the gimbal with rays to you couldnt even make simplest transformations

I have found this opportunity in Maya. Please check this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdwe3UP3PtQ

This is a full editable-separated viewport. Called "tear off viewport". This is what i need, but in 3dmsax...

This floating viewer is

This floating viewer is really cool! But unfortunately is not what i mean... I need a full editable separated viewport, which is not depends on other viewports... So i have to move objects in the separeted viewport, etc...

Or is it impossible? BrandonD said on the cgsociety forum an opportunity, "you can find a highly limited floating viewport easter egg in the MAX Finder utility.

That's separeted viewport is nice, but really highly limited.. You can rotate the viewport, and nothing else you can do..
