An in-place massing model was created using CAD backgrounds.
Walls were added in the area of interest using 'Wall by Face'.
Doors, windows, decks, and railings - salvaged from other projects - were added in the focus area only.
Topography placed in the courtyard area, with various materials placed by sub-region, using a landscape background as the template.
A 'fly-in' animation sequence was created by manipulating camera path key frames in a section view.
A 'fly around' animation sequence was created using 3D lines as a template for the path. Key frames were added to smooth out the camera motion.
The two animation sequences were aligned by placing the views on a sheet in wire-frame mode. All camera adjustments were made using the 'Look' feature on the Revit Steering Wheel. The two sequences were then combined with titles and effects using Windows Movie Maker.
