The summer sun is starting to shine, but it's a month of interior rendering on the SU Podium forums. This month we've featured two different takes on the kitchen & great room theme from Gary Petrovski and Paul M. Olson, and a new pair of bedroom renders by Dmitry Paukov.
The Gallery Forum is a fantastic place to find inspiration, receive critique, and learn new tips and tricks to perfect your Podium Renders. Click here to browse the Gallery Forum.
Attention, AIA 2015 convention attendees!
SU Podium will be at the AIA Expo 2015, May 14-16 in Atlanta. If you're attending the convention this week, please look for us at booth 3574 (booth name: SU Podium)—we'll be directly across from the SketchUp Pro booth. We hope to see you in Atlanta!
We are working on a Panorama feature which will be included in the next update of SU Podium Version 2.5 Plus (V2.5.1).
The Podium panorama feature will render a photo-realistic, spherical panorama image that will allow you to add interactivity to your SU Podium renders. When you open the image, you will be able to rotate your camera spherically in 360 degrees around the position of the camera. The image is output as an .html file that can be opened in any browser (or shared over email, hosted online, etc.)
See it in action: The best way to understand the feature is by looking at some samples on the Panorama beta gallery page, or click the image above (note, this is a fairly large file and may take several seconds to load).
The Panorama feature is included in the V2.5.2 update, which is free for all users that have already upgraded to SU Podium V2.5 Plus.
SU Podium V2.5 Plus is still available in the Cadalog webstore for only $19.95.
If you haven't ugraded to V2.5 Plus, but want to take advantage of the increased processing speed and forthcoming Panorama feature, you can purchase the upgrade here:
To complement the huge batch of 3D plants that were added last month, we've just uploaded 40 new desert plants. These are 2D image planes, perfect for use in the mid-ground or background sections of your image. These render very quickly and use alpha transparency for to produce realistic shadows.
