With 3DVIA there are two main approaches to creating your document; creating views or creating animations. But you aren’t restricted to one or the other, both can contribute towards the production of the other.
After creating several views, these can be translated over to keys within the animation timeline. Simply drag and drop the view thumbnail onto the timeline at the correct time frame.
This also creates a marker which can allow events on actors or collaborative actors to play from a marker or a marker sequence (from one marker to another).
Hint: You can also work in the complete opposite direction, dragging the time bar on the timeline and capturing a view will also work to create views from an animation.
