Animation extension



What is the easiest and simplest way to set up cameras and create an animation in skethcup that can be exported to a mp4/mov/etc file type? I’ve tried advanced camera tools but get horrible clipping issues. If anyone has a free one, that would be great, a paid one is fine too. Please and thank you!


the easiest way is to use Scenes and the Orbit Tool to frame each view…



Thank you John, I don’t know how I didn’t know about scenes prior. Appreciate the help!


Combine scenes with proper use of layers and you can animate things moving, too.


Keyframe Animation from

worked well for me when I wanted to animate components moving.

Not free, but not expensive.


You should have a look at Fredos new animator plugin too.
