This is a related question to a thread I started the other day:-
out looking in 360 image, lumenRT? - Visualization Forum - Visualization - Bentley Communities
I have created a target oriented camera, and am able to rotate the camera around the object by degrees. I'm testing rotating the camera by 5 degrees and creating a saved view. Is there away [coding?/ vba script?] to automate this process, as manually rotating the camera 5 degrees > creating a saved view > then rotating the camera 5 degrees again> save view etc..... is very time consuming.
at 5 degress this give 72 images for a complete 360 revolution around the object [at a given elevation] these can be imported into a program which creates an html user controlable animation.
I can increase the elevation and do another 72 images revolution to allow the user to rotate above as well as around the model.
So, manually moving the camera by degrees and creating saved views is time consuming and I'd like to move this process to the computer to do for me - is this possible, or has anyone got any bright ideas??
You should be able to do this using the animator in Microstation, you can setup a circular path and use the number of frames the camera takes to move the length of the path to determine the number of degrees moved.
I think Myles is wanting to do this within LumenRT - animating a camera in Microstation won't work as LumenRT currently can't import camera animation paths.
