This lecture will cover the process of creating striking videos designed to communicate complex infrastructure projects within a Building Information Modeling (BIM) pipeline. You will discover how products from Autodesk, Inc., can enable you to deliver detailed technical information to both engineers and non-technical audiences involved in a project. Helicopter video shooting, tracking, and 3D replacement have become essential exercises for achieving this purpose in transportation infrastructure projects such as airports, freeways, and elevated-train systems. We will follow some of these videos from beginning to end, covering topics that include: preproduction tips for shooting video from a helicopter and tracking with the MatchMover application; integration of tracking points and camera in a 3ds Max software environment; BIM pipeline integration with 3ds Max software and Revit software; rigging and animating transport in 3ds Max software; rendering management in the Backburner application; and optimized compositing.
