Animating Container Terminals for lazy people

Jonatan Bijl

Sunday 29 October Salon 30

Animating a container terminal is a lot of work. Cranes, Trucks, container movers, more than 100 moving equipment in view. It is a lot easier when you work at a company that does logistic simulations for container terminals. But still, how do we do it? In this workshop I share our approach, problems we ran into, the solutions we came up with, in the following areas:

  • Importing simulation data
  • Equipment rigs
  • Steering and turning wheels
  • Writing plugins
  • Simple renderfarm
