    Another of the Morris chair. This time with a bit more light and a tiny bit of post Podium processing.

    Thanks for the compliments, guys.

    As a side note, a rendering application like this does require some good housekeeping habits when working in SU. Be sure to keep track of which faces are out when you're drawing. Don't apply your textures until you've finished and know that you have no exposed back faces.

    Gosh Dave,
    I really don’t quite know what to say… flashback to Michael Creighton’s Rising Sun.

    Seriously though, I am really impressed with that rendering. Your investment in time has certainly paid off, and that you are so willing to guide and tutor others in learning SketchUp is commendable.

    Thanks,
    Frank

    Pretty impressive output. Not impressed by the 'windwos only' part though. Given the almost completely UI free nature of such a program it's very hard to see any good reason to exclude Macs.
    Smile. It worries the other guy.

    I noticed this little gotcha when I was playing with it earlier.

    I also found that it renders things "pretty dark". I wonder if the "real" application offers more control. Example below...apparently the front of the two vanities are really "back faces". Who knew??

    It really did a nice job on the "stock" SU components in the piece, such as the windows. This rendering thing is pretty kewel when you want to really visualize how something looks.

    Tim, I wouldn't be surprised if a Mac version is released one of these days. The fellow who is doing the development has plenty on his plate without adding multiple platforms right away. I'd bet once he gets the little bugs worked out, a Mac version will be next.

    Jim, you can add as many lights as you need to make the scene brighter. If I get time on Wednesday I'll try to post an overview of how I do the lighting for rendering with either Podium or Kerkythea.

    Jim -

    Dave gave me a great tip that has helped immensely. Change the "Face Back color" within Sketchup. Go to Window / Model Info / Color and Change Face Back to a bright color that is distinguishable. I chose orange, for example. Then save these changes in a template and you have settings for when you startup Sketchup for drawing and keeping faces oriented properly.

    Once set, I can quickly reverse or orient faces so orange is to the back or inside of an object.

    I agree with all - Dave is the master of SU. Anxious to learn more from him on the rendering tools.

    Neil
