Render your Sketchup Model in Blender

I’ve been playing around with the camera settings and angles. The problem I’ve been having is that when I go to render, the image I get is often only a 1/4 of the actual model.

I am discovering “compositing” tools in Blender. The principle is to calculate an image, then to choose the “compositing” workspace. It’s post-production but based on a nodal system (components, functions linked by wires), and it sounds great.

love your buildings. love the tip.
