I’ve modeled up a couch & used a file from the Sketchup Warehouse for the cushions (because I’m not very good/don’t have time to model that myself!). In my Sketchup file, those cushions look lovely, with great gentle shading that looks fairly realistic:
Sadly, when I actually export the 2D graphic to PDF (so I can render in Photoshop), the shadows go all tessellated!
I’m wanting to use the Sketchup shadows for these cushions & just tweak the colour/texture in Photoshop, but with these tessellated shadows I can’t get it to look any good… Any tips on how I can export it & keep the good shadows? Ideally I’d like to still export it by going File->Export->2D Graphic->PDF as that keeps sizing consistent & the file is nice & big for me to edit nicely… I’ve tried exporting using Layout, but I’ve found this tends to make the image too low of a resolution to edit nicely…
Thanks in advance for any help!!
