Publish Video

Whilst sharing an interactive 3D cadasio project online is a great way to show your CAD assembly and service instructions, a big request from our users was to be able to save a video out of your project. In this update, we are pleased to release the ability to do just that. Not only are you able to quickly save out a video file of all your steps playing though, you can also choose to manually record. This means you are in control and can click though at your own pace, and better yet, you can choose to record your computer microphone giving you the ability to voiceover your video as you step though!

For more information read our blog regarding publishing animations.

Publish from within the Designer

To compliment the new ability to publish videos, you can now easily publish images as well as publish your project online from within the Designer. Previously you had to go to the Dashboard to do this, so this should speed up your workflow.

Transparent Background

When doing a quick capture you can now choose to output an image with a transparent background.

We have also added a new project option to save all step images with transparent background. Open the main menu and you will find it under the Misc tab. Dont forget you can update all your step images in a single click from within the Steps Manager.

If you are going to embed your projects, then we have a new option that will make the background of the embedded project transparent. This ensures that it blends into your own webpage easily, keeping your website theme.
