CSI Revit (Part III): Recreating a "crime"

We've discussed how to read journals, and how to use them to track down problems. Journals can also be used to recreate and create. Complex journal files built over a full working session perhaps don't work so well, but journal files created for specific purpose can be useful. For instance, Ken Stowe from Autodesk has in the past created journal files that can be used to sequence a Revit model using multiple phases to generate still frames of a Revit model being assembled.
