Outputting 3-D building tour videos


#1

HI - total Sketchup newby here. I have a client who has supplied me some skp files which he would like me to use to create a virtual tour of the buildings and output it as a video file (probably .avi) what tutorials can I watch/read to find out how to do this?

You have all the time in the world to learn to use SketchUp,… but not time enough (in the short term,) to be sure that your client is pleased.

My best advice (this go 'round,) is hire someone experiencedat making fly-thru animations, and make sure the client is pleased. In this way you can see what is capable with SketchUp, plugins and external tools.

Feel free to post a RFQ in the Commercial and Collaborative Work category.

Thanks - but that doesn’t really answer my question.
