Learn some of the most commonly used terminology in SOLIDWORKS: Animations and how to understand the animation timeline.
- [Instructor] Within my timeline, I'll be constantly…working with key points, key frames, and change parts.…A key point is an entity that corresponds to a defined…component position, property, or simulation statement.…These are indicated here by my blue diamond shapes.…A key frame on the other hand is the area between my key…points which defines the timeframe of the component…motion or property change.…Finally I have the change bars and these are my horizontal…bars connecting between my key points and they indicate…a change between my key points and have various colors…to help identify the component and the type of change.…
So for example, this legend here shows specific colors…corresponding to specific types of animation changes.…So as an example I can see my explode animation will be…shown with an orange time change button, I just jump…back to my animation here.…You can see that orange change bar so that should be…indicating an explode or a position change, and if I play…through, I can see wherever I'm hitting those orange…
