I have tried to animate my model in motion studies but i am not getting the good results. the background is not coming good. i made it plain white though and also increase number of frames. also video is far wider than the length. pl. help.
animation or motion?
can you post what options you are using for output?
i believe there is a post on here about exactly this question and that the answers are:
1. output raw and then encode
2. output screenshots and then put them together
check for anna wood, i believe it was her posting.
The best is to render them series of pictures using PhotoView 360render. Then using windows movie maker join them all into a video
I do this with most of my animations.
You listed two specific problems but haven't shown us a sample, so it is hard to tell what you are doing.
If your background "not coming good" means that you were trying a gradient background but it appeared banded in the output, then don't use the Microsoft Video 1 CODEC as it only encodes 256 colors. This is most noticable in gradient areas. In other areas, you will wind up with subtle color shift. If your were questioning something else, then you need to be more specific.
The video aspect ratio is set in the dialog box when you go to record the animation. Whatever ratio you choose, the vertical dimension should be what you see on your screen and the width will be whatever is required to achieve the aspect ratio you set. If you are doing anything other than "quick and dirty" animations, you should be using a camera instead of a viewpoint as you can set the aspect ratio for the camera and have it hold constant in the output. Carmeras are also immune to visual blooming caused by changing bounding boxes in the model.
I don't know what you changed your framerate to, but 24 fps is the standard movie framerate and works well for most applications. Going above this is rarely needed except in certain situation wherre parts change direction in short time intervals. Remember, the higher the framerate, the larger the output file.
It is all in the book "Creating Animations using SolidWorks", published by SolidWorks.
