SketchUp Level 3 - Rendering Photorealistic Models for Architecture and Interior Design Course Outline

This 2-day class lets you bring your basic Sketchup models to`life with Enscape and Twin Motion. These are two of the leading programs for realistic lighting (rendering) in architecture and interior design. We teach this class in a 2-day format to`provide time to`allow for questions, review as well as additional hands-on practice. During class, the instructor will demontrate both Enscape and Twin Motion. Students will get hands-on practice with Twin Motion. ONLC Sketchup level 1 course OR an advanced understanding of Sketchup is recommended for this`class.

Who Should Attend
This is for individuals who already have a functional background in SketchUp and who are ready to take photorealism to the next level in the SketchUp models.

Hardware Platform
All of our SketchUp courses are taught on the Windows platform. However, because SketchUp on the Mac is`very similar to`the PC implementation, we welcome Mac users. Mac users have been able to take our SketchUp training without issues.

Note: we recommend that individuals taking our class from their home or office connect to the "student" computer using a PCn A Mac can be used to connect to the "meeting" component of the class. To see the minor differences between SketchUp on the PC`and Mac, please review this`video prior to your training: Mac SketchUp vsn Windows SketchUp

Individuals should have taken our SketchUp Level 1: Essentials course or have similar experience prior to taking this class.
