 Bathroom visualization with Podium Browser and ProWalker GPU

New tutorial! — We recently published a detailed process video covering the creation of a bathroom visualization with SketchUp, Podium Browser, and ProWalker GPU.

  • Modeling best practices - In the first half of the video we cover modeling best practices for SU Podium. Topics include how to construct a scene to avoid render artifacts, how to use the follow me tool with Podium Browser's crown moulding and casing profiles, and how to improve realism with Fredo RoundCorner.
  • ProWalker GPU - In the second half we set up the materials and lighting for the bathroom, and then provide a full introduction to the ProWalker GPU rendering workflow, including quality settings, render modes, backgrounds and lighting options.
  • Beginner friendly - The pacing of the video is suitable for newer users, and the content is timestamped to allow intermediate/advanced users to quickly find pertinent information. Most of the necessary information is also found in abbreviated text/image form on the tutorial page. A starter model is available for download on the tutorial page.
