How To Make an Interior Phasing Animation

Phasing animation is a technique used in interior showcases to visually demonstrate the various stages of a design project. It involves creating animated transitions that show how space transforms from one state to another, helping designers effectively communicate their design concepts and highlight specific design elements.

With offline rendering tools, it might be a hard nut to crack because designers can only imagine how a phasing animation will look before outputting one. Yet with D5 Render, a real-time rendering engine, you can preview the animation and make adjustments anytime.

Utilize Keyframe for phasing animation

A keyframe is a specific point in time used in animation and video production to mark the start or end of an animated movement or change, allowing animators to create smooth and complex animations.

Take this carpet as an example.

End keyframe: If we want the carpet to drop down from the ceiling, first add a keyframe when it's still on the ground. This refers to its end position.

Start keyframe: Then, move it up by changing the z coordinate. Add another keyframe before the end one on the timeline, representing the start position of the carpet.

You only need to rotate the book a bit at the start keyframe.
