Creating Interactive 3D PDFs with Acrobat 3D and the Right Hemisphere PDF Publishing Module

Steps 30-35


  1. Repeat steps 22 -- 28 to create keyframe animations for different objects such as the bolts animating up from bottom of assembly for Step 2 -- Sequence.

Bolts added.

  1. Change the current Sequence to Step 3 -- Sequence by Left Click > Small Arrow > Select > Sequences > Select > Step 3 -- Sequence.
  2. Step 3 -- Sequence will be a little different from the previous two sequences in that the keyframe animation will move along two different axis' over a 1 second period. Instead of moving the Time/Frame Slider to 1 second place the Slider at .5 seconds and Select > Edit Keyframes Tool from the CAD Tools toolbar to activate the record mode.

Time line.

  1. Select the object/objects that you want to animate. Then mouse over the 3D object X,Y,Z axis handles until the object axis that you want to animate turns yellow. Click > Drag object/objects along axis using Move tool to object position at .5 second.

Sequence 3.

  1. Move the Time/Frame Slider to 1 second.
  2. With the object/objects still selected mouse over a different X,Y,Z axis handle that you want to animate turns yellow. Click > Drag object/objects along axis using Move tool to object/objects end position at 1 second. This will create a keyframe animation of an object moving down and across over a 1 second period.

Sequence 3: part across time one.
