About working with animations in 3D

Animations in three-dimension (3D) - using Globe or Scene - allow you to visualize and analyze your geographic data in a dynamic fashion. In Globe, you can use the animation objects to create the following:
  • A globe camera animation track to animate the globe camera for creating flybys or visualizing the globe from different perspectives.
  • A layer animation track by altering layer properties such as transparency and visibility.
  • A time animation track, which alters the time of the globe display.
The globe camera, layer, and time animation tracks can be played individually or together to create dynamic visual effects.
For more information about animations, see What is an animation?.
