Autodesk Inventor - Presenting your design with still images and animation

The Autodesk Inventor Presenting Designs with Image and Animation Tools course teaches you tools that can be used to enhance how designs are presented. You begin in the modelling environment, learning how to customize visual styles, include reflections and shadows in a display, set up and control lighting, and assign material appearances. The guide also discusses the Presentation and Inventor Studio environments. The Presentation environment enables you to create snapshot views (still images) and animations to help document an assembly and show how parts relate to each other (exploded drawing views). Inventor Studio is an alternate tool that can also be used to create realistic renderings or animations.

Autodesk Inventor Presenting Designs & Animation

  • Enhance the appearance of surfaces and edges of a model by assigning visual styles, ray tracing, reflections, shadows, and a ground plane.
  • Customise and assign lighting styles to control the number, colour, and intensity of light sources in a model. 
  • Manipulate the visual appearance of a material using the in-canvas appearance and texture tools.
  • Create, assign, and edit existing appearances in the model using the Appearance Browser. 
  • Understand how presentation files can be used to document an assembly model.
  • Create a presentation file with animations or Snapshot views.
  • Publish a presentation file to create images and videos. 
  • Render a realistic image of a model that has had appearance, lighting, and camera customizations.
  • Create a realistic animation of a model by applying parameters, constraints, and actions.
  • Create a composite video by combining camera shots, animations, and transitions using the Video Producer.
  • Create a custom environment for use when rendering models.
