Q - question

Populating architectural visualizations and animations with Populate in 3ds Max 2014.

A - answer One of new features in Autodesk 3ds Max 2014 is the function Populate (originally "Project Geppetto"). It allows to automatically generate animated, realistic groups of people and add life-like features to your architectural visualizations and animations.

Populate offers two main functions - "Create Flow" for walking pro kráèející characters (pavements, corridors, halls, passages) and "Idle Area" for loitering groups of people. Both functions offer automatic creation of animated 3D people with realistic behaviour.

Video-tip with the procedure of creating idling groups on the terrace of the sample project directly imported to 3ds Max Design 2014 from Revit 2014 (the rac_basic_sample_project.rvt file) can be found in the CAD Video section - see:
