I am trying to create an animation in Creo 2.0. To start with I am just trying to create a simple orbit animation and to do this have created four views at 90 degree rotation points and set them equally spaced time intervals. I want the view to sping smoothly so have turned Animation Interpolation on.
The problem is, Creo moves the view vertically and unpredictably for no apparent reason so it is not in the frame, as shown in the attached WS1000-2500.mpg. You can see the difference between the actual views with the "WS1000-2500 No Interpolation.mpg" file also attached.
Is this just another example of PTC's inabilities to write proper software, or does anyone have any idea what is going on and how I can sort it out?
Many thanks for any help,
Hi, if you want to create a simple orbit animation it is not necessary create views.
You can create animation around axis - spin your model/assembly around axis
Thanks for the suggestion. Making the model spin is fine for the example I demonstrated, but my next step is to render the animation and if I spin the model, the reflections and shadows will mean it is clear the model is spinning, and not the camera.
I know that it is not problem - you can really easy Lock Room to your object >> in Room editor select Room locked to Studio
Thanks once again for the suggestion. Once I have got the orbit sorted, I do need the assembly to move relative to the room. I appreciate I could create a seperate hidden part as the grounded part, and move the assembly relative to this part, but it is only a work around to what appears to be a significant failing in the functionallity of the software. Do you (or anyone at PTC) know what the source of the problem is?
I am "only" ProE and Creo user (I have a lot of experiences as application engineer for PTC software), and I use the functionality from this software
If you have any idea for improving Creo - you can create new Idea: http://communities.ptc.com/community/creo?view=idea
Thanks for your help so far Vladimir, it is apprecaited. I will post a message again here if I get any further with the problem.
All the best.
