Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Exporting the TimeLiner, part of Navisworks Essential Training.
…So, welcome to the movie business.…If you have clients who could never possibly open…Navisworks and push a play button, this feature's for you.…We can actually export this movie to a video file for…others to enjoy or to put it into a presentation if desired.…Since the movie's already created, there's no sense hiding it.…By clicking on the Export Animation…button, we'll go through some exporting settings.…Within the structural NWD model, go to your Simulate tab.…The very far right is the Export Animation button.…Click it.…
