Tutorial 05: SketchUp VRay Animation part 2

Welcome to the second part of the tutorial. In this tutorial, I would like to share to you how to "stitch" or merge the rendered frames into one.

We are going to use Adobe After Effects for this. If you haven't seen the first part, check it out here

Part 02: Stitching the frames.

Check part 1 here.

Tutorial 04: SketchUp VRay Animation part 1

In this tutorial, I am going to share how to do a walk-through animation in SketchUp rendered in VRay. This is the first part of the tutorial.

PART I: Setting up 

First, we must determine how long our walk-through is. In this example, we set it at 5 seconds. Since I have two scenes, it will take 5 seconds for the camera to move from scene 1 to scene 2. It's very important to change the SCENE DELAY to zero.
