I have my students create views of their project (under views on the right). Is there a way to download the views in form or an mp4 or another video format?
In SketchUp, this means you want to save an imagefile of the current view (or a video file from a sequence of animated scenes).
In SketchUp for Web, you find this in the File menu (the third item in the top left, with a folder icon ), under Export → Direct Download → PNG. Videos cannot yet be generated from the web version, but you could use a screen recorder or download SketchUp Make (unfortunately incompatible with everything but Windows and macOS).
