When you export a Walkthrough (File>Export>Images and Animation), the Visual
Style drop down list in the export dialog has an entry for Rendering.
Choose it there, and your walkthrough will render as it is exported either
to an AVI or to a series of JPGs you can post-edit in a video editing

I am trying to render a walkthrough that I have set up in my project and I
can not figure out how to get the rendering started.
It's worth mentioning that with Revit 2011, there is no longer a 4 CPU core limit on processors when rendering, so if you have a dual quad core machine, you can now create rendered walkthroughs in Revit.
Interior scenes with lots of artificial lighting will still take a long time due to Mental Ray calculating the raytracing.
Exterior scenes should render failrly quickly--you just need a computer with multiple processors and fast clock speed.
That said, it is still better to animate and render in 3dsMax, for high-quality visualizations, with its better camera control,
lighting and material editing, etc.
We use both methods; just depends on the scope, budget, schedule and end result you need.
