Tell a deeper story with your CAD data and discover how easy it is to create camera animations within SOLIDWORKS Visualize. This lesson focuses on how to create and manipulate keyframes using our unique Animation Ribbon, a 3D representation for how your camera moves throughout your scene. Create a simple camera flyby with Auto-Keyframing enabled. Adjust the speed of the animation and location of keyframes by directly manipulating the Animation Ribbon. Utilize two viewports to get as much control as possible over the final animation path. Available in Visualize Professional.

Learn how to create two types of interactive outputs, VR and Panoramic. Both of these render types create a set of images like an animation, but instead of stitching them into a movie, they are instead stitched together to create an interactive rendering accessible from an HTML link. Understand the important use cases for Visualize’s interactive outputs Learn how to set-up your scene for generating VR & Panoramic outputs. Tell a deeper story with your 3D data with interactive outputs. Available in Visualize Professional.
