KERKYTHEA TUTORIALS PDF

One feature that is missing in SketchUp, though, is photo-realistic rendering. Look at this post for an overview , I suggest you take a look at the freeware Kerkythea. For completeness, it should be mentioned that there are also the free renderers with export plugins Indigo and POVRAY , but I currently prefer Kerkythea due to its great user interface, fast and great results as well as multiprocessor support. Kerkythea installs as a separate program and SketchUp models are converted to its XML-based scene description language with a very seamless exporter plug-in a Ruby-plugin. The rendering engine then provides various rendering methods such as ray tracing, photon mapping, path tracing, BiPT, MLT and also presets for clay and ambient occlusion renderings.

Kerkythea is simple to get started with, but has sophisticated settings to produce very professional final outcomes. The Plugin can be found under Integration along with easy install instructions If used correctly, Kerkythea can be quick.

However, as you fine tune the rendering settings, add more lights, soften the shadows, give the material textures and bumpmaps, you will quickly find out that the rendering times exponentially grow. I will most often do the bare minimum, to get my rendering times down, then put more effort in post processing. However, there are times when spending the extra effort to add nice textures and lights outweigh the time it takes to post process in photoshop. Things that extend rendering times: Multiple lights.

Adding more lights slows the rendering time. Lights that are made up of many surfaces, such as a sphere, make it even worse. Lots of geometry. This one is obvious, but using a lot of trees or just really big models will really increase rendering times. Deleting part of the model so that only objects in view remain is something I do a lot. Complex textures. Textures with a lot of reflection or shininess really slow things down. Use these textures sparingly. Soft shadows. Choosing the right preset makes a big difference.

Metropolis Light Transport looks the best, but can take days to render.
