Create Fly-Through

Access this dialog box from Document > Creative Imaging > Create Fly-Through.
The Create Fly-Through command will only be active if you have at least one Preset Parallel Projection or an animation path with at least two Cameras.
Source: Use the controls below to specify source window parameters.
Click 3D Window to use the 3D Window as the image source and preview window.
Note: To select wireframe, hidden line or shaded images, use the View > 3D View Options sub-menu.
Click PhotoRendering Window to use the PhotoRendering Window as the image source and preview window.
Note: Use this option to save photorealistic bitmapped images.
Click Preset Parallel Projections to create animated transitions between parallel projections.
Note: This option is not available if fewer than two pre-set projections are defined.
Click Perspective from Camera Path to create a fly-through animation along the current Perspective Path. The name of the current Perspective Path is shown below.
Note: This option is not available if fewer than two cameras are defined.
Click Keyframes only to image key frames without any in-between frames.
Click With inbetween frames to image in-between frames as well.
Click All Frames to image all animation frames in the current Path.
Click Frames from to specify a range of animation frames (first and last) for imaging from the current Path.
Note: The numbers shown by default are the first and last frames in the entire animation.
Rebuild Model for Each Frame: If you check this option, ARCHICAD rebuilds the project after each frame and creates a new view from the rebuilt model.
Note: This option lets you create additional animation effects, provided that your project contains any Library Parts whose appearance changes with every frame. This can be achieved if the Library Part parameter is set to change along with the frame number.
Result: Use the controls below to specify the format of the Fly-Through process.
Use the first pop-up field to select a file format for the images saved to the hard disk.
Remove Redundant Lines: Check this box to remove overlapping lines from the saved image(s).
Frame rate: Enter a frame rate value here.
Show: Click this button to process the Fly-Through and preview the images without saving them to the hard disk. You can save the resulting animation afterwards by clicking Save.
Hint: To preview only a short sequence of frames, adjust the Frames from radio button option to preview a short sequence of frames.
