A new video has been released showing Thea for SketchUp and Laubwerk Player in action!

We have been working closely with the Laubwerk Team and we would like to thank them for an excellent cooperation!

Here is the video:

I think it is good that you can use this plugin now also for Thea, however, I find the offered trees as very expensive. It would be nice if you could get as a Thea users a discount. :oops:

They are expensive, but have you seen the amount of variations each tree can handle?

Download the free kit and try it. The free kit alone fills a lot of my needs with trees already and I'm sure that, having the right project, I will definetelly consider the other kits.

You can do this animation only with scene transitions... no plugin needed.

The best thing is to render as images. When you use an animation software you feed it the first frame and it will auto load the rest. There are a lot of alternatives. I recommend Fredo's Animator plugin and MSphysics for animations with Sketchup and Thea compatibility. I wouldn't recommend any plugin for this kind of animation though. SU native scene transitions are easier.

For the video, we used Fredo's Animator. It was mentioned at the credits of the video.
