Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Basic animation, part of SketchUp 2013 Essential Training.
…Sketch up can also play and export animation.…Now it does this using the scenes function.…Now, we've used this before by creating, different views into our scene here.…So I can actually click between these tabs to get from, say, a perspective view to a…top view to a close up view of my scene. Now if I want I can create new ones.…I can go into Window…> Scenes, and we worked with this before, and…we can actually go from one scene to another.…
Now notice how all of these have this little…check box here and this says include in animation.…That's because we actually have an animation function…in sketch up, and it's really very simple.…It's just a way to go from scene to scene.…So, if I go into view, animation, we have an option here…to play the animation.…And what it does is it jumps to scene one, and then holds it for a while.…Goes to scene two, then goes to scene three.…And basically all it does is it steps through each of the scenes.…
Now, if we want, we can rearrange these scenes by moving them left or right.…
