more integral links with sketchup

I think that Kerkythea is great, i've used it now for a couple of renders and got some amazing results; better and more straight forward than anything else i've encountered.

One thing which would be very good is the possibility to use it either inside sketchup (as a plug-in) or allow some kind of reference update into Kerkythea so that you can carry on adapting the model in sketchup and have it render in Kerkythea. On a number of occasions i have had to start from scratch with a model set up in kerkythea because i needed to make a small change to the model back in sketchup.

Apart from that, as i've said, it's great. (oh...also maybe a better interface to save the global illumination cache....sorry)

You can make changes in SketchUp and re-merge them to Kerkythea. You'll find some discussion abotu how to do it in Kim's 'Beginner Starting Guide' thread - the main conversation starts on the second page.

Things to watch out for are to make sure that you separate material names in SU. KT works in materials not in components.

That said, decide which element needs to be changed. Edit it in SU, then export to KT - giving it a new file name and say 'No' to the Open in KT dialogue.

In KT open your old model in KT, select File | Merge and browse to the file you just saved. Set the merge options and merge the changed element.

It takes a little bit of practice to get the settings working OK, then it works well.

:welcome:
(but as you mention, the 'interface' for doing this is not self-evident)

and please study !

I join to this wish. A whole KT interface in SketchUp would be great. Actually I've tried KT for a couple of renders, too. It was for the company I work in, and they won't use it for it involves to much work from SU to render. And it's worse if you have to do a trial-and-error (or trial-and-boss-says-no-change-this-and-that) workflow, because going back to sketchup, make changes, then redo all you render settings or export and merge can be a way too massive work on some models.

Actually it would be a great help to handle KT materials inside SketchUp. I mean that's what su2kt seems to be meant for, but it looks like it just doesn't work... or do you have to import materials for every new model?
