    Feels a bit like a roller coaster to be honest and your resolution at 480 is WAY to low in this day and age.

    Yep. Moves WAY too fast. Also, too much movement, even if its slower. If you need to pan this way and that to see different things, cut to a different animation path, and splice them to gether with a GENTLE fade here and there. I also wouldnt have the path plow through the entourage people.

    Sorry, you get a welcome first!

    Now to the advice...

    If you can up the resolution, even to boggo-720, without crippling your bake times then that'd be nice.
    (let's be fair Robin, the opening splash in the vid. suggests our OP is a uni. student) - if you've nothing of the sort already, look into virtualdub for (free) post-processing - it's got tons of addins to handle frame doubling, dithering, etc...

    I'll second Aaron's critique - but won't repeat it - instead get yourself onto Ronen Bekerman - 3D Architectural Visualization & Rendering Blog and watch how some of the visual pro's "shoot" their videos - using cinematography devices (stills, pans, dollies, DOF, etc) to tell stories of the scenes - rather than rehash the hackneyed ubiquitous "walkthrough-on-rails" attempts by (most) architects.

    Oh and simply because I've not posted it anywhere in at least a month...

    Oh I guess I forgot to welcome you on the forum too, so Welcome!

    A uni. student indeed I guess, but that does not make a 480 resolution any better. That said I have never made any animation in my life, so just commenting on what I see.

    Way better than I can do on a first try in 3dsMax. Good job. Find some good walkthroughs and copy them to learn. Like they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. It also will spawn new ideas for you to take things down your own path.

    FWIW, there is a lot of specialty software available now that specializes in this and does so very easily and effectively.

    Is that all CG?! (didn't have audio on...) It's spectacular if it is.

    Yup. There are segments towards the end that deliberately "expose" where/how it's not camera work. More here: Customer Success Story :: Silestone and The Third and The Seventh projects & here Alex Roman interview: The Third & The Seventh, From Bits To The Lens book

    I think the thing that can be somewhat criticized is that it changes direction way too fast, but I believe it's an issue of revit itself. Quite tricky adjusting cameras direction.

    Also, is very good to combine different speeds along the presentation, so is less monotonous. Sometimes, look to one side and another while you are walking is good because provides less sense of claustrophobia. Just think that when you are walking in a straight line some people may want to look to the sides to see what's there (to see if there's someone else for example). Weird but I like it.
