Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up animation motion paths, part of AutoCAD: Rendering.
- This one's kinda neat.…We can draw a polyline, stick a camera on it,…and send it flying around the model.…So what we're going to do in this video is…we're going to set an Animation Motion Path.…That's simply, we are going to draw a polyline…and put a camera on it.…Then we're going to pick a point to aim the camera at.…Then we're going to let it roll down the tracks.…Of course, after that, we'll make a…movie file out of it once we're done.…So to get started, let's jump into AutoCAD…into our archway drawing.…I'd like to go to our floor plan…so let's go to our view cube and let's…orient ourselves down to our plan view.…
Now, the first thing I'm going to do…is I'm going to draw a polyline.…I'm going to type P-L and hit Enter.…I'm going to pick a point here,…I'm going to come straight through,…just like this.…Then I'll turn the corner here,…go straight through like that,…come up a little bit,…then maybe I'll come back over.…Now I'm going to hit Escape.…The next thing that I'm going to do…is put a point in here.…So type point, P-O-I-N-T, and hit Enter.…
