Twilight is a very popular and inexpensive third-party renderer for SketchUp. This course shows how to create highly realistic 3D architectural drawings (including interior/exterior elements) with the lights, materials, camera, and render options in Twilight. Author Brian Bradley explains the importance of reflectance in materials, and shows how to manage and save rendering presets, how to correct for perspective, tone, and exposure in the camera, and how to create a variety of material types. The final chapter covers rendering your complete arch-viz scene for a couple types of output, including animation and composites.
If you are a Premium member of the lynda.com online training library, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this SketchUp rendering course. The exercise files are in the Exercise Files folder, which I've placed on my desktop; you can of course store it wherever you like. There are files for most movies. They reside in subfolders named according to the chapters. It is not necessary for you to use these files; you can use files of you own in place of them if you like. If you are a Monthly or Annual subscriber to lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files, but you can follow along using files containing your own work.
