About animating scene properties
In ArcScene, you can create an animation that changes ArcScene properties. The animation you create is contained within a scene track.
Reasons to create a scene track include the following:
- To view a scene as it progresses through one day by gradually changing the background applied to a scene from blue to black (day to night) using multiple keyframes, and setting the azimuth and altitude (inclination) to values representing the sun position at multiple times throughout the day
- To exaggerate the terrain in a scene
To create the scene track, you create the keyframes it will contain. Keyframes are the most fundamental elements of an animation. A series of keyframes is assembled into a track. Create a keyframe to make a snapshot of the properties of the object or objects to which the track is bound. If the object is the scene, create keyframes to make snapshots of scene properties, such as the scene background color, as it changes through the animation.
