SketchUp 2021 - Progress updates on compatibily

 SU Podium V2.6 is NOT yet compatible with SketchUp 2021

SU Podium V2.6 for SketchUp 2021 is currently our top priority. There were changes to the Ruby API in SketchUp 2021, so it will take some time to update the software and test the new version. We will release an update compatible with SketchUp 2021 as soon as possible, but most likely not before the first week of December.

  ProWalker GPU V1.2.5 will be released for SketchUp 2021 after we finish updating Podium.

Beta available - ProWalker V1.2.5 will include support for NVIDIA 30xx Ampere GPUs. If you already have an Ampere card and would like to try the beta, you can find it here.

Please note that this is not yet an official release. Ampere support for earlier SketchUp versions will follow later.

  Podium Browser 2020 standalone - The Podium Brower 2020 standalone plugin does work in SketchUp 2021 for licensed Podium Browser standalone users.

 Tutorial - Control sun/shadow softness by editing the preset

This video demonstrates a simple trick to soften the sun's shadows and sunspots by editing a single parameter in the render preset.

Since this trick only requires the user to edit a single number, it is a very straitforward introduction to preset editing. If you've ever wanted to experiment with render settings that aren't visible in the user interface, this would be a great place to start!
