    Walkthroughs

    My professors said that they would like to see a walk-through of my site where I start at the street and walk up to the building and then around the inside of the building

    What program should I do this is. I know Revit has the capability of doing this. I do not want to have to learn a new program for this single task.

    Any tips/tricks or tutorials on this would be fantastic.

    Walkthroughs in Revit work but they aren't as clean and refined as something that comes out of 3D Studio or a 3rd party rendering software. If you do create it in Revit the one big thing I would recommend is to export as JPG and combine the images in something else. Your render & processing time will be infinitely faster than trying to render directly to a video file.

    The other tip I would have is to refine the keyframes before exporting. When creating the walkthrough the camera will be looking forward and transition in strange ways. Open each keyframe and fine tune them using the steering wheel.

    Depending on how nice you want it all to look I have another option for you I used not to long ago and it is simple too do.

    - Get the tool / plugin Revizto (free)
    - Export your Revit model to Revizto
    - Use Revizto to make your model into a 'game' you can walk around in
    - Use a tool like FRAPS or OBS to record your 'game' (free)
    - Edit the video the way you want too.

    This does not look rendered of course, but basically uses the appearance of the realistic visual style, but it is quick and you can easily redo some parts of the video if needed.

    Alternatively, as you're a student, download and install a student copy of Navisworks... whilst that's ticking away in the background, setup a series of camera views in your Revit model (to create a storyboard) - dump the model into Navis and bunch the (newly placed) cameras into an animation.

    It won't look as pretty as the aforementioned Revizto/Max options - but the key benefit (I see) is that you'll have setup - and have at your future disposal - the key vantage/wayfinding (camera) points in your Revit model, that you could then render (singularly) to produce a storyboard-narrative for critique/pin-up/portfolio purposes.

    Hey Denis,

    I do think that will be Twinmotion which you are looking for. There is a fonctionnality named BIMmotion, which is a freem self-executable file (mono or stereoscopic) that includes your projects model and Twinmotion engine. You can walk through freely in 3D or on a pre-defined path, change perspective, follow an animation etc.

    You will just need to import your model in Twinmotion, then export a BIMmotion file.

    I agree with Snowy, Navis will do the job pretty easily, without having to spend too much time familiarizing yourself with other software. Not to mention you can get it for free.

    The optimum software for you use really depends on the level of detail and quality your professors expect.

    How can I edit the elevation of the camera and its focal point after the walkthrough spline has been created?

    You can edit the numbers in the camera properties or use the steering wheel.

    Try to use Lumion, this is a nice software to use in walkthrough...
