An overview of videos in Twinmotion.

On this page

You can use Twinmotion to create videos that provide curated animated walkthroughs of your 3D models and scenes. You can export them directly to your computer, or share them with your colleagues and clients by adding them to Local or Cloud Presentations.

Videos can be saved in a standard format, or saved in 3D, 360°, or 360° 3D mode. Standard videos and videos in 3D mode can be exported in the preset 2K or 4K display resolutions, or in the custom format of your choice (maximum 64K, up to 61440 x 61440). 360° and 360° 3D videos can be exported in 2K, 4K, or 8K display resolutions.

Using the Phasing tool, you can show the evolution and all the phases of a construction project from start to finish in your videos. You can also show the different stages of a project over a period of time by creating Scene States and applying them to parts and keyframes. Using phasing and scene states, you can create accurate visual depictions of the status of a project at specific points in time.

Parts and Keyframes

Videos in Twinmotion are created using parts and keyframes. When you start creating a video, Twinmotion automatically creates one part that contains one keyframe.

A part corresponds to the beginning and end of an animated sequence in a video. A keyframe corresponds to a particular point of view in the scene.

As you continue to create a video, you select new points of views in the Viewport and add a new keyframe for each point of view. When the video is played, the camera moves seamlessly between each point of view (or keyframe) to create an animated version of the scene.

Videos can contain one part only, or several parts. If you create a video that contains several parts, you can drag and drop them to reorganize their playing order.

The video below shows an example of a video that contains two parts: the first part shows the exterior of the Lakehouse retreat demo scene, and the second part shows the interior.
