We often make videos of the construction process (phases and such, with a week counter) for presentations. Right now we either create them in Navisworks or outsource them to professional animators. We are looking to bring this internally, but we are not sure what software to pursue. The ones in discussion so far have been 3DS MAX and Modo. We are looking for something that integrates well with Revit, and were just curious if anyone had any input (pros/cons) of what to use.

Thanks! Any input is appreciated.

I use 3Ds Max. I can easily link my Revit model in and then manipulate the different parts in 3DS.

Navisworks is probably your best bet if you want it fast and inhouse. We use this all the time esp for the timeliner. Assuming you have Manage, you should be able to apply materials and render it out as you run through time. I have only experimented but you should be able to set the scripter and animator up too and navigate around while the timeliner plays...

My friends and I thought of a great idea for short films. We have everything ready except for an animation program. We have everywhere and downloaded a bunch of free ones that were to complicated and professional. We are not old enough to program one or go to college, so we wanted to know which free downloadable animation software is the best for 2D animation. Thanks for your help!
