Thanks to all for reply.
I want do animation through SW but i am not getting things. how i will get it in SW.Can you help me out of this problem.
Do you mean automation OR animation.
Animation is possible but would take a good amount of time.
Not sure what kind of automation though you're talking about.
Animating that in SolidWorks would be a good test of the nerves. It's a task better suited to 3DStudioMax, or perhaps Download - blender.org - Home of the Blender project - Free and Open 3D Creation Software
I would have to agree with Bjorn. While it is possible to animate something like this in Solidworks you're not going to get actual video quality out of a CAD program. Even in an animation specific program getting the look of a real video as in your example is going to take animation experience.
You will need to model each 'jewel' as a part. You may could just model one and pattern it in the assembly, but the animation example you provided has many different shapes. You'll want to model a ceiling plane. Simple rectangle with many holes in a grid. You may want to model the string, this only needs to be one length, as anything the goes above the ceiling plane will not be seen. Apply the correct material / appearance to each part.
Now you need to create an assembly. place the ceiling plane first, the line your jewels up with the holes, you may want to add some refernce geometry to the parts to do this effectively. You'll want to restrict the x and y movement and create distance mate for the z movement.
Get all your lighting set up.
Once you have them all in place you can create a motion study. ensure auto key is on. Move the time slider along to where you want then adjust the distance mates to their new position. Move time slider again, new distance for each jewel, repeat.
There will likely be some trial and error. Keep the frustration under control.
