One of my team members did a post awhile back about using animation inside studio with Inventor Pro Simulation. Not every company has a version of Pro so I want to show how you can have animation inside the studio environment using positional representations. This is only one way of adding animation into your studio environment.
Inventor 2009 now allows any positional representations to be communicated to Inventor’s Studio environment. This allows you to create an animation of a design transitioning from one assembly position to another.
One of the new options in Inventor2009 is the addition of depth of field settings in the Studio environment.
From the Inventor New Features Workshop:
Camera depth of field has been added. It helps when compositing images and photos. It also adds more of a photographic element to the realistic renders you generate. With the depth of field controls you can:
Use focus limits and specify the near and far positions of focus planes.
Use the f-Stop option and specify the stop value and focus plane position.
Link the focus plane to the camera target.
Use the linked focus plane option in conjunction with an animated camera target to get a moving focus effect.
