Please see the following description and link below for details:
The hidden power of animation in form•Z 7
The animation features in form•Z go far beyond basic fly through of your model. form•Z’s parametric animation gives the power to create stunning dynamic presentations of a design. The form•Z animation features can be used to as a whole new way to explore and develop new 3D forms. Join us for this exciting webinar as we demonstrate the power and ease of the form•Z animation features.
You will experience:
How to animate objects, lights, materials, cameras, sun position, and more.
Easy techniques for creating and editing walk-through / fly-by camera animations.
How to quickly create sun studies of a design.
How to use parametric animation to produce dynamic presentations of a design.
Learn how animation modeling can be used to extend the modeling capabilities of any tool.
Discover how time can be used to interpolate shape and form
Experience the ease and power of graphical control over
animation tracks, velocity etc.
And much more...
This webinar will be followed by a question and answer session.
A replay will be available a few days following the webinar.
Thursday, November 15, 2012 1:00pm-2:00pm EST (18:00-19:00 GMT)
The previous webinar for the Valencia Opera House is now also available on-demand in case you missed the live presentation:
We hope you enjoy these valuable resources!

@Matthew: I believe I found the answer to my last question...it is essentially the Transform Macro tool. I want to copy, rotate, scale at the same time (and/or add deformation tools on top of that). Derivative objects - similar, yet different from the source. Very similar to applying a Bulge, Twist, and Taper at the same time in the webinar, except you are producing also copies in different locations as you transform. Perhaps I will contact support at some point to see how I can animate the process, which might allow for a lot more control over the options than the Transform Macro tool. Essentially this could be a way of working in parametric design in "real time." Parametric modeling "live" without coding scripts or using a Grasshopper like input interface.
Here is one example at what I was getting at:
you make a wall
you add some objects that will become openings
you copy, rotate, scale the objects using the Transform Macro tool (very cool tool)
you boolean cut your objects
perhaps producing something like this:
obviously this is a very advanced, complex version of the idea, but it illustrates the idea (a Zaha Hadid building)
