SketchUp Newsletter - Render Plus Systems - August 2012 - View Online
It's the end of August, time for children to go back to school. And, since you never too old to learn, we thought we would share a couple things which will teach you how to create better SketchUp renderings. One is a rendering tip, addressing a common question, the other is a Webinar on how to Create Better Renderings for Client Presentations.
Common Rendering Questions
Speckled Lines at Edges
This month in the Render Plus Forum an IRender Nxt user posted a question about a common problem—in his rendering he was getting whitte speckled lines around the edges of walls and the ceiling.
After examining his model, we discovered he had walls made of a single face, rather than thick walls, with dimension. Single face walls can work but they often leak light through the corners where two walls meet.
Webinar - Creating Better Renderings for Client Presentations
Webinar Creating Better Renderings for Client Presentations
Wednesday, September 5th, 11AM PDT
What it's About The webinar will teach you how to use SketchUp and IRender nXt to produce photorealistic renderings from 3D designs. Learn the work flow for creating a full set of interior and exterior, daytime and night-time renderings of 3D designs for client presentations. We will start with basic rendering settings and lights, then move on to advanced concepts such as using lighting channels to balance light sources and create dynamic, well-lit scenes.
The webinar is free and will last about about 1 hour, including the Q & A session.
Who Should Attend The Webinar will be geared to beginning users, particularly architects and builders, who want to design with SketchUp and create photorealistic renderings for better client presentations.
