Here are the questions I would like answered:
Besides Animator, what software packages do you use to animate large assemblies?
What do you use to create environments?

I am looking to get information from people who create animations using SW models. I work for an engineering firm that designs equipment that can sometimes be several kilometers long. (I am aware of maximum design area limitation in SW so all of my work would be to scale.) I have gone through the SW MotionManager 2008 book, but it mostly deals with small assemblies and parts. I need to animate large scenes. They do not need to be too detailed, but the animations need to have some realism.

There are three examples of what I would like to do on this pages: Click here.
