first time posting here so apologies if i get some things wrong.
i have been using sketchup on and off for about 4 years at a very basic level. i am currently using Stetchup Make version 17.2.2555.
i tried to download Keyframe Animation 2 by Regular Polygon as all the youtube videos i’ve found on animation either use this which seems to do what im after according to the video below, or section planes (which i can do, but is not “complex” enough for the people wanting an animation from me).
this is what im led to believe can be done with keyframe animation 2.
i’ve never used extensions before. so, my questions:
when i try to install, i get the message: “the extension will have the ability to access the filesystem on your computer. do not grant access to this lightly, be sure you trust the author”.
is this common with all sketchup extensions wanting to access the computers filesystem? i’ve never had an alert like that before on any other game or software i use. if it is common, if this isn’t too stupid a question, what “filesystem” on my computer is it trying to access?
is there any other extension which does the same as Keyframe Animation 2, preferably free if possible, as i use sketchup so infrequently that i dont know what would be worth investing in long term. the basic program is usually enough to wow most middle management who dont know anything about computers.
also, on a separate note, i would like to add my disquiet for sketchup now being cloud based as sketchup free now appears to be, which is why i have stayed with the older Make 17.
many thanks for any help, and apologies for coming across stupid!
