Animation Workbench

The animation workbench in SimLab Composer offers multiple tools that facilitate animating objects and cameras in the 3D scene. They provide a way to create videos and movies as well as Walkthroughs.

Object Menu

Functions in this menu assist the user in creating common object animation quickly and efficiently.


Object Animation Group

Capture Keyframe

Creates a keyframe at the location in the timeline, for the selected object. If no object is selected a message will appear indicating the need to select one. 


Show/Hide Object Animation 

Selecting a 3D object at any frame other than zero and clicking Hide from the Object Animation group, will add a keyframe at that location and the object will be hidden there. Another keyframe will be added at frame zero, with the object shown. Using these two functions hide/show animations can be created easily.
