RPC Animation


Animating RPC objects in Bongo 2


Rhino 5 supports RPCs and some of them can be animated. With the help of Bongo 2 you can now animate the animated RPCs inside Rhino 5.


Note – Renderers supporting the technology at the moment:

  • Brazil for Rhino
  • RhinoRender


In order to make it work you need an Animated RPC figure from Archvision.

For more information about the RPCs, please see the manufacturers website:



To add the Bongo animation data to the RPC you need to type in the following command: RpcSetAnimationFrame


How exactly do I do this?

  1. Use the command RPC to insert the RPC figure into Rhino.
  2. Place the RPC in the start location.
  3. Activate Animate button on the Timeline, select the RPC and move the RPC to the position where you want the animation to end.
  4. Use the command “RPCSetAnimationFrame” to set the last keyframe for where the animation should stop.
  5. Select the RPC, and under the Properties Tab in Rhino there is an icon for RPC-properties. In the RPC-properties you can set the height for the RPC and make it cast shadows.
  6. Render using Rhino Render or Brazil.
  7. Use the BongoRenderAnimation command to make the video.
