Make a character move in a model

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I'm a design student and I was asked to imagine an area of a festival and make a 3D model of it.

I was wondering if there was anyway to make a video of a character moving in this space, to show it at the presentation.

Thanks!

Vectorworks will not do this sort of animation. We can render walk-through videos of of you design with static figures but this is about as close as you can get to what you want.

 

Potentially, if you have access to Vision and understand how to program lighting consoles you could use the DMX transform feature to move the figure around in Vision, but it would not be animated as such, just moving it in 3D space within a predefined movement range.

Reach out to them, OZcad is very responsive and perhaps there is a 2020 version, ie maybe the 2019 version will work. I love AnimationWorks, BUT if you're after something articulated, like a dancer AnimationWorks cannot create that type of movement. You could get an object to track through.

In addition to the suggestions above, you could also take a look at the third-party application Twinmotion, as it handles animated characters with relative ease.
