I’m looking to do animated view fly-over/walk throughs (and perhaps some object animation) for urban-scale models, and I would like some advice as to what is a more appropriate tool for the job. The urban models would be generated using Esri CityEngine and consist of streets, sidewalks and buildings with all of the relevant details. I may also want to animate the movement of vehicles and pedestrians included in the model. I would export the model to an appropriate file, then import into Rhino/Blender for animating.
I currently own Rhino 6 and Flamingo nxt 5 and initially I considered Bongo for creating animated views rendered with Flamingo or Rhino Cycles, however it appears Blender may also work. I don’t have experience with either Bongo or Blender, so any advice on which tool might best fit my use-case would be very much appreciated.
