This paper discusses walkthrough as an advanced application of the object-oriented animation database system MOVE, which is developed so as to make producing computer animation easier. Since MOVE offers computer animation facilities as well as data management facilities in encapsulated form, users can use them without knowing the details. We introduce a graphics model in MOVE. Using this, we produced a walkthrough animation in our university and evaluated the system.
