How do you present a technical design in a way that everyone can understand? Try PhotoView 360, which makes it possible to create photorealistic renderings and animations with SOLIDWORKS Professional and Premium editions. In this course, Gabriel Corbett shows you how to transform a SOLIDWORKS model into a fully rendered animation. Learn how to apply materials and textures (including transparency and reflectivity) to parts and assemblies, set up the environment with cameras and lights, and render a final realistic image. The last chapter shows how to animate your scene and output the final video to share with your coworkers or clients.
Okay, so the render has completed now. It ran overnight and now we're back to take a look to see what happened. I want to point out, before we get into the video and revealing it, how long it actually took to render out that animation. In this case here we had a 15 second video and we are running it at 15 frames per second. So we had 226 frames. We originally had the render quality set at better. However, those are going to take eight minutes per frame and at 226 frames it's actually going to take about 30 hours. We didn't have quite that much time. What we did was set the render quality setting at just good.
It was rendering our frame in under one minute and took us about four to seven hours depending on how long it took overnight. But anyways, the point is that the render's complete, so let's take a look at it. I'm going to come down here to the Exercise files. And we saved that to chapter seven in 7.2 and there it is. It's an avi file. Let's go ahead and double-click it. Let that open up. Give it one second to load and we can double-click on the header to scale the size. Alright, let's run it and see how it looks. (BLANK_AUDIO) Alright.
Looks great. At this point in time we can bring that same file into another video editing software if we want to do some overlays, if we want to do some color corrections, some other things like that. The file's ready to go. It's an avi file. You can bring it in and then we can prepare it to send it out to maybe YouTube or Vimeo, or some of the other video hosting sites, because keep in mind, these files are very large. If I close this file here, if I get information or properties, you can see this is a 465 megabyte file, so it's not something you just want to email to your friend or something like that.
It's going to be a large file so it's best to, you know, host that one some type of video hosting service like YouTube, for instance.
