Engineering Design Graphics with Autodesk® Inventor® [Book]
Rendering an animation outputs the animation according to the settings you specify in the render dialog box. There are three tabs in the dialog box that provide settings based on the selections you make on the General tab. We recommend using the Preview Render option to confirm the camera shows the animation in the way you want. Before you render an animation, must make sure that no productions are active.
In the browser, expand the production folder and if a production is active, it will have a check mark next to it, right-click and deactivate it. Active productions take precedence over active animations at render time. Specify rendering settings for an animation.
On the ribbon, click Render tab Render panel Render Animation. On the Output tab specify whether to render all or part of the animation. You may choose to render the animation in reverse. Provide the output file name and type.
Use Preview render to quickly see the results. Preview render uses the scene or Environment lighting from the modeling environment instead of Studio lighting. Entire Animation Specifies the start and end times for the entire animation. To use the Measure command or choose from most recently used values, click the arrow on the input box and select from the menu. You can adjust any value in the input box.
Specified Time Range Specifies the start and end times for a segment of the animation. Start time must be less than or equal to end time. To choose from most recently used values, click the arrow on the input box and select from the menu. The specified time range is expressed by seconds as a default. Reverse When selected, the animation records in reverse, from the end time to the start time.
The time edit controls display the appropriate reversal. You can specify video output or image output which results in each frame being output as an image. You would compile these in a third-party editor to produce the animation.
Video Format Specifies the video format. Image Sequence Format Specifies the image sequence format. Render videos of your product, animating lights and cameras.
Attention: When rendering, productions have precedence over animations. To render an animation, and not a production, deactivate any active production. Right-click the production and select Activate to deactivate it. Note: When rendering an animation, not a production, you can only record one camera at a time. If you want to use multiple cameras when rendering the animation you must use Video Producer or other video editing software.
Note: Preview Render records the animation using model scene elements such as lighting, shadows, and reflection. Parent topic: Model Animation in Studio.

I will now repeat the steps of activating the Tweak command, placing the UCS, and moving the part. To save time you can enter the distance, then click the next part that you want to move instead of pressing Enter or selecting the checkmark.
Selecting the next part will replace the UCS without exiting the command. I will repeat these steps till the exploded scene is set up the way I want. Working with Trails Trails are the visible representation of the tweak paths, and will display whether using the move or rotate options.
The trails are generated at the time the tweak action is recorded and can be visible immediately. There will be times that a trail will not be located where you would like it to be. The trails are located by the center of gravity of a part. There is an option to add and remove trails within the mini-toolbar next to the All Components icon.
In this example, I added a trail to the back of the part. Once added, I moved the part the direction at the desired distance.
I then selected the Remove Trail icon and selected the magenta trail that I wanted removed, as shown below. Inventor IPN now has the ability to create an animation where both the camera and the parts are in motion simultaneously.
This is one feature I have wanted Autodesk to add for a very long time! To place a camera, adjust your graphics window to the needed location, position the playhead at the point where you want the camera position to occur in the timeline and select Capture Camera from the ribbon or the right click wheel.
If you do not like the default position of a camera at the start of the animation, move the playhead to the beginning and select capture camera. You will not see a camera position populate to the storyboard when a camera is set at 0 seconds.
When you initially place a camera, the timeline will show a duration on 2. Alias Design. Alias SpeedForm. Alias Surface. ArtCAM renewal only. AutoCAD co. AutoCAD Architecture. AutoCAD Electrical. AutoCAD for Mac co. AutoCAD Mechanical. Autodesk Build. Autodesk Docs.

In the Animation Timeline, drag the slider to the position where you want to end the first action. In the browser, or in the graphics area, select the components to animate. On the ribbon, click Render tab Animate panel Components.
In the Animate Components dialog box, click the triad button to define the direction of the transformation. In the 3D Move or Rotate dialog box, you can specify the transform amount or drag the component to an approximate distance or rotation.
Note: Use the triad arrow tip for distance and the arrow shaft for rotation. Note: If necessary, switch off the visibility of iAssembly excluded components in the assembly environment to avoid their visibility in a Studio rendering. Note: Use Animate Components to implement a model turntable, where the model rotates in front of a stationary camera. It requires that you place your top-level assembly in a wrapper assembly so you can animate the top-level assembly in Studio.
Use Animate Camera to implement a turntable effect as a function of a camera, where the camera rotates around a stationary model. Animate Fade Control the visibility of a component during a given time frame. In the Animation Timeline, move the slider to the time position where you want the fade action to end.
On the ribbon, click Render tab Animate panel Fade. In the Animate Fade dialog box, the current value is used for start, and you specify the end value and define the time.
Click OK. Animate Constraints Animate linear or angular values for one or more constraints. Constraints that were previously animated are stored in the Animation favorites folder. In the Animate Constraint dialog box, enter a value for the end of the action.
If appropriate, render the animation, specifying the light style, scene style, and camera to use. Fast Action alternative method: Move the timeline slider.
Double-click a constraint. In the Constraint edit control dialog box, enter a new constraint value. Tip: Define angle constraints as Directed if there is component flipping during interactive playback or in a rendered animation.
To specify one constraint, you can select it in the graphics area and click Constraints in the Animate panel of the Render tab. To specify multiple constraints, you must select the constraints in the browser, and then right-click and select Animate Constraints. Animate Parameters Animate the values of one or more user parameters.
On the ribbon, click Render tab Manage panel Parameter Favorites and mark any parameters you want to animate as favorites. They are added to the Animation Favorites folder. Drag the slider to the position where you want to end the first action. In the browser, click the Animation Favorites folder to expand it. In the Animate Parameters dialog box, enter a value for the end time. If desired, render the animation, specifying the light style, scene style, and camera to use.
Expand the Animation Favorites folder, and double-click a parameter node. It creates an action for the parameter, from the last action, and displays the current parameter value. In the Parameter edit control dialog box, enter a new constraint value, and then click the check mark to accept the input. Animate Camera.
