3d animation of E+ results

I would like to make a video showing an animation of the building in which I can see the temperature variation through timesteps. What is the best software to visualize the results in Energyplus in a 3D model? It seems Euclid could do that but it's not available for the last versions of Sketchup and E+.

OpenStudio has a measure called "View Data" which produces a 3D model that you can interact with and allows visualizing output variables. An example can be found in this video:

You could do a record of your screen while you play with it. But better, yet, you can share the HTML file and associated json file, and anyone can open it in a browser and play with it even if they don't have OpenStudio installed.

The measure is available via the BCL.
