This presentation is a tutorial on AutoView, an AutoMod extension package that recreates model animation according to a user-defined script. AutoView allows users to restart animation and move back and forth in time and 3-D space. Animation is created using text files generated from an AutoMod simulation model. By creating a user-defined camera description file, animation can take place that allows for panning from one view to another, as well as for attaching the camera to a simulated load or vehicle and traveling with that entity during portions of the animation. The animation is provided at an enhanced response time because it does not have the logical and statistical processes of AutoMod (which can slow animation). This tutorial demonstrates several animation scripts previously constructed with AutoView, discusses the creation of AutoView files from AutoMod, and describes the development of a camera description file
