This book contains step-by-step projects that show how to create creative and compelling set models in SketchUp 2017. Geared toward film and stage design students and industry professionals, the chapters teach best practices and efficient design techniques, and progress into advanced workflows.
After getting started with exploring various types of set models, you’ll then create your own: a TV news set, a studio set, and a film location set. You’ll learn about finding and creating props and dressing, using textures and materials, camera tools, and theater design. Along the way you’ll get to know many SketchUp extensions that are essential to the entertainment design industry. You’ll use LayOut for storyboarding and construction documents, explore rendering options, and learn about how 3D printed SketchUp models are enhancing model presentation.
