IM 2013.

Is there a way to create a camera path as an offset from the road centre?

I am looking for the same function as provided in C3D's Drive command.

Hi Kevin,


This is not something that works in AIM today but we're considering addressing this in a future release.

Hi Thendyz,


With AIM 2013 r2 and InfraWorks 2014 (just released), we moved away from Showmotion to a new feature, called a Storyboard.  The Storyboard feature can import point data to define the path.  The help topic for this can be found here:
