Twinmotion is a real-time visualization tool for the AEC and product design world that enables photo-realistic renders for a variety of platforms. In this course, multidisciplinary designer Jonathan Racek shows you the workflow between Twinmotion and Revit. Jonathan explains how Twinmotion can improve your workflow, then shows you how to get started with the Gizmo, the Scenegraph, and the Library. He steps through how to sync your Revit file and add materials and furniture in Twinmotion. Jonathan covers environments, including tools you can use to add vegetation, then goes into weather functions, nighttime renders, and more. He concludes with useful information on how to export your images and animations and how to share your work with the Presenter tool.

- Jonathan Racek Senior Lecturer at Indiana University; Program Director, Comprehensive Design; Founder/Creative Director, Play360;
Jonathan Racek is a multidisciplinary designer and a professor at Indiana University Bloomington.
Jonathan’s research is concerned with the design and creation of systems of production where the design/products/architecture/new systems emerge. This research is articulated through the high-tech—parametric modeling, digital fabrication, alternative visualization methods—and the low-tech, including participatory design in a developing world context.
He has worked with Play360, a nonprofit that trains organizations to build low-cost educational resources throughout the developing world. He has performed such training in Peru, the Philippines, Zanzibar, Guatemala, Thailand, Haiti, Guatemala, and Kenya (where he helped build one of the only playgrounds in the largest slum in Africa).
Before joining the faculty at Indiana University, Prof. Racek was the founder of STEW, a furniture/architectural firm, for over nine years. Their work has been exhibited in Los Angeles, New York, Milan, Melbourne, Beijing, and Dubai and has been featured in such publications as the New York Times, TIME magazine, and over 30 other domestic and international magazines.
In 2001, he received a design award from the American Institute of Architecture, Los Angeles chapter. He received his LEED AP certification in 2009. In 2012, he was named one of “40 Under 40” in the AEC (architecture, engineering, and construction) industry, as determined by Building Design+Construction magazine.
He has recently been working with virtual reality systems, specifically the Oculus Rift and its implications in architectural prototyping and visualization, educational exhibits, and historical preservation.
