Hi there! I’m trying to find a way to get renders of visible parts of object entities in a scene. For example, i have two balls in an image, and i would like to get a render of what is visible from both.
Example image of scene:
Photoshoped out front ball:
The background and the front ball has to be transparent for the usage i’m trying to create.
I know this is possible and easy to do in photoshop/paint.net afterwards, but the plan is to automate this in ruby and do it with numerous objects to make a object builder of sorts. Is there a clever way to do this in sketchup?
I have managed a similar result by simply hiding all but the desired entity and rendering the image once per entity in the scene, but there is then a problem with overlap between objects which are both in front and behind each other.
So far i’ve experimented with SU Podium and V-Ray with not to much luck.
Seems to be very similar to what is asked and solved in Blender in this post:
But i find no such discussion for Sketchup
