Questions & Answers

[Q] What is the quality of the results I can expect to achieve using this animation plug-in? I just want to do client presentations, I'm not wanting to do television broadcast quality.

[A] Perfect. The RealCAD animation tools are ideal for generating presentation videos that you will replay on your PC but are not of the quality you would expect from software designed to create TV commercials.

[Q] How realistic is the result I can get?

[A] The level of realism is governed by the way you set up your materials' the lighting and the render settings you choose to use. The maximum level of reality is limited by the built in raytrace rendering of RealCAD.


[Q] How fast is the recording of my animation going to be? Is it something I have to leave for hours to finish?

[A] If you animate in wire-frame or quick-shade mode then the animation time is really fast, but if you select raytrace rendering or hidden line and your model or scene is complex and the screen resolution is set high you will find this will affect the animation creation time considerably.

System Requirements

Requires RealCAD Pro and as fast a CPU as you can afford. 

If you can render your model or scene in the desired mode in less than 30 seconds then animation is just viable with your hardware considering that you will be rendering your scene at about 24 frames per second. Therefore it would take 12 minutes to produce 1 second of animation.
