Description

Podium is a photo rendering program that you can utilize to create beautiful photo-realistic images.  Podium is an inexpensive, easy-to-learn program that works within your SketchUp interface. 

Since Podium runs within SketchUp, its somewhat intuitive to learn.  It has a simple interface and versatile presets to speed up your learning curve.

However, you still need a basic understanding of the various settings in Podium.  We’ll talk about light and material properties and how to accurately define them.  We’ll discuss using sunlight, artificial light, and pre-made light fixtures most efficiently.  I’ll show you the Podium browser and how to utilize this resource most effectively.  And I’ll help you determine the best output settings to efficiently move from base renderings to your final project.   We’ll then work through a series of projects to understand how to use all this knowledge to make the best workflow to quickly create beautiful renderings.  And finally, we’ll talk about Post-processing and where to find more resources.

Podium provides a free trial version to work through this class and determine if it’s the right software for you.  Check out their website for more examples of images created with the program.


Who is the target audience?
  • Designers, Architects, or anyone interested in creating renderings for a variety of purposes.

Nationally Certified SketchUp Instructor

I want to make SketchUp accessible to everyone. Whether you love technology or have spent your career hand-drawing, my goal is to teach you in a way that simplifies SketchUp's powerful tools and lets you quickly add SketchUp to your workflow.

I was a presenter at the last National SketchUp conference. My SketchUp Classes are nationally certified by the NKBA and ASID for CEU credits. I have taught hundreds of students in my live classes so I know the questions and problems that are likely to come up and have included them in this course. I hope this eliminates many of the frustrations that come with an online class.

In addition, my business, See3D utilizes SketchUp daily to create architectural models and renderings for architects, design firms, real estate agencies, as well as creating plans for homeowners.
