01. SU Podium V2.6 Quick Start - Overview

Video 01 in the Quick Start sequence

This is the first video in the SU Podium getting started series, and is the ideal starting point for beginners to rendering in SketchUp with SU Podium. We recommend beginners follow the videos roughly in the order presented in the sidebar, however longer videos are timestamped so that you can find specific information if needed.

Note: These videos are labeled V2.6, but are fully relevant to anyone using V2.5, or even an earlier version of V2. The major change from V2.5 to V2.5 was the addition of HDR image-based lighting, so that video could be skipped for V2.5 users.
