Podium Server is a stand-alone implementation of the Podium render-manager that can be used to render Podium .scripts on a computer without a full SketchUp / Podium installation.
Podium Server / OOPR can be installed on a second computer to be used for rendering alongside your primary workstation so that you can continue working while your images are rendering.

GenerateAll - GenerateAll is a free plugin that can generate a Podium render script for every scene in a SketchUp model.
GenerateAll is an easy way to automatically generate a Podium .Script file for every scene in your SketchUp model. Script files can then be sent to a separate computer for rendering, or rendered at a later time from the Podium Render manager (OOPR).
The GenerateAll plugin provides the same workflow advantages as our RenderAll plugin, to users who are used to using the Generate Script tool to render images on a second computer.
