Description

Description

Animations typically have a polished and time-intensive connotation. However, increases in computing power and program interoperability have begun to bend this notion. This class will focus on the benefits of quick animations—animations that help designers form, shape, understand, and present a design. We will explore the methods that are required to take Autodesk® Revit® software models and move them into Autodesk® 3ds Max® software in ways that allow designers to make active design decisions. We will show quick, functional animation workflows, covering a variety of topics, including solar glare, form, constructability, programming, scheduling, and more through animation. This class hopes to show that designers can effectively study and explain their designs through fast-production animations. We will show start-to-finish methods through case studies.

Target Audience
