I'm assuming he probably wanted to know how to add trees and shrubs and stuff like that, but since he never came back, I guess we will never know. :unsure:

Typically, when creating a still image like this, I would render my model from the same angle as the photo and then composite the final image in Photoshop. It's much faster and easier to do it this way than building the whole thing in 3D. This video is a good example: https://vimeo.com/91315595

 

But, if you're going to be doing an animated fly through, or if you need the ability to rotate around and see everything from different views, you will need to build the whole thing in 3D. I don't do much in Sketchup, so I can't really help you with this, but maybe f700es will have some suggestions.

Hi Cad64

 

Awesome video!!

I'm going to study about it.

 

Thanks for the tip.

The billboard itself is pretty easy as it is just a cylinder, some rectangles and some gussets/flanges at the bottom. The grass and trees will be a problem and should be handled with a 3rd party rendering engine. Vue Esprit would be a good solution for this imho.

I'll 2nd that recommendation. I have Vue Complete and it is designed specifically for environments. You can import your .dae file directly into Vue and bypass Sketchup completely.
