The new, fast, Batch Extractor, extracts your SketchUp Geometry directly inside of the IRender Batch window, rather than inside SketchUp using Ruby.
Extract Time Improvements
Our tests have shown that the Batch Extractor is 5, 10 or even 20 times faster for extracting the geometry than our old Ruby extractor. (The bigger the model, the more improvement you will see.)
Improved Extraction Times Only
Your rendering times, (after extraction), will be the same.
Still, the Batch Extractor can greatly improve the time spent before the rendering passes start.
Also, the Batch Extractor displays the progress bar properly, (without freezing), which has been a problem with the "inside SketchUp" extractor.
After downloading the latest version of our SketchUp Renderer, bring up the Render Setup Tab, and check "Use external extractor"
