As we test different complex geometry options, it is useful to show how the form evolves through different parameters. In this video, learn how to create a function that exports rendered frames from Rhino, allowing us to quickly create animations that would otherwise take much longer to produce.
- [Instructor] So far in this course,…we have successfully created, analyzed,…and baked geometry into a Rhino document,…all by using Python.…Now let's push Python to automate a series of options…by baking out multiple renders,…then once we have rendered a series of options…based on view angles, let's stitch…them together to create an animation.…If you're following on from the last video,…not much has changed.…I've simply added planar surface…so we can see the shadows in our render.…We'll be using the standard Rhino renderer,…so let's change a few options.…
Go ahead and navigate to file,…properties, and then render.…In here let's change a few options…for our default render.…Let's change the solid color to black,…and we'll turn the ground plane off,…and use custom environment for reflections off,…then scroll down, and we wanna ensure…this studio is selected, and then down in the…wireframe options, we wanna render surface edges…and isocurves, and render dimensions and text.…
