Came across an excellent series of posts over at Revit Detail.
If you go to this post, you can download quite a number of these videos for offline use.
After overcoming some issues with the exporting of walkthroughs using 64 bit, I was able to export the following animation. It is a considerably long shaded walkthrough animation of a Theatre Project we are currently working on.
Here is a visualisation we recently completed in Revit 2010 64 bit.
Update: check out this page for the 64-bit Xvid codec
I encountered a problem today related to walkthrough creation in Revit 2010 64 bit with Vista 64 bit. I was exporting a large walkthrough to uncompressed AVI format, and the file size would reach 4.00 GB (4,294,967,296 bytes), and then corruption of the AVI would result. It appears that a 4 GB limit was being imposed at some point in the walkthrough creation process.
Therefore, I tried to use an encoding format. When using Revit 32 bit, I recall that I had a number of options in the Video Compression ‘codec’ dialog when exporting a walkthrough. However, in Revit 64 bit, I only had a couple of basic options (Microsoft Video 1, Intel IYUV Codec, Full Frames (uncompressed)).
After some searching, and trialling a few different ideas, I found that I could access some decent codecs in this box after installing Shark007’s 64 bit components (link below).
In addition to the above, it is recommended that you install Shark007’s 32 bit Codec Pack (link below):
Vista Codec Package 5.5.3 Final
After installing both of the above and restarting Revit (you may also need to restart Windows), I was intermittently able to access an additional filter in the dialog called ‘ffdshow’ – clicking ‘Configure’ opened up a whole range of encoding formats for use!However, there appear to be a few problems:
Given the above limitations, my solution at this point is:
After spending quite a few hours trying to make this work in a satisfactory and simple manner, I decided to contact our reseller and lodge a support call. I will let you know if I learn anything helpful.During this investigation, I tried a few things without success. They may be of interest to you (see links below).
Okay, I may be WAY behind everyone else, but I didn’t know about the Autodesk Youtube Channel until today!
It appears that I may have been stuck in some kind of inanimate stasis for the last, well, I don’t know how long.
In any case, if you too were confined in the 1950’s jazz holodeck program while the Bynars stole your spaceship, head on over to:
