Photo realistic emulation in the rendering processes with Sketchup

Sketchup Plugin

Mike Ernst, the most recognized urban planner and designer, has conducted an advanced course on sketchup which focuses on superior photo realistic emulation in the rendering processes. In the introduction, we'll cover prerequisites for the course as well as the course objectives.

By undergoing this course the sketchup professional can learn how to produce a more photorealistic rendering of a SketchUp model with a free third-party renderer known as Kerkythea. Kerkythea generates more realistic lighting and shading than just exporting directly from SketchUp. The sketchup professionals can also learn how to include additional components to the rendered model in Adobe Photoshop.
