Robert McNeel Bongo
Animation for Designers
Bongo brings professional animation into
Rhino 3.0, using familiar keyframe
tools found in most high-end animation packages.
Professional animation tools
Animate moving, scaling, and rotating Rhino objects without
exporting. Objects and viewport animations are editable in the Rhino window
using simple drag and drop. Modify your objects and motion data without
losing valuable time changing between programs.
Easily preview your animations inside Rhino, in real time, in any shading
mode by scrubbing the timeline or playing the animation. Then render straight
to an animation file using any Rhino renderer including wireframe, openGL,
render preview, render, TreeFrog, Flamingo, and Penguin.
Bongo is also great for demonstrating moving objects using real-time playback
in the Rhino viewports - just drag the timeline around to show a client
how your design works.
