Hi everyone


I have a major pain with creating  a walk through on a large assembly. I have tried doing it is SolidWorks but although it works, the result is not acceptable. the quality of the AVI file is bad. the animation is very jerky and the images seems to be compressed. in general the AVI is not fit for use when you are trying to convince a customer to invest in your design.  


The animation is a walk though of a big plant the SolidWorks assembly contains about 10 000 components.  I have tried other methods as well.

I have tried saving the animation as BMP files and then building the animation is Camtasia. the problem is that camtasia only allows 10 frames per second. ti odes however improve the image quality with the BMP files rather than writing it straight to a AVI.


I have also tried using 3DVia.



Does anyone have experience with this kind of animations and which software is recommended?
