SU Podium v2.5 Plus for SketchUp by Cadalog

More geometry, more textures, more speed:

With significantly increased speed and an exciting new Panorama feature for presenting interactive, 360 degree VRs, Cadalog, Inc has released SU Podium v2.5 Plus for SketchUp.

After months of development, SU Podium v2.5 Plus implements a shift from Ruby to C++, meaning the plugin can now process SketchUp models and communicate with the photon mapping/ raytracing engine up to 20 times faster than in previous versions.
Models with significantly more geometry, textures, and materials, will produce far less impact on render-times. In tests, Podium v2.5 Plus was able to export a model to its rendering engine, with 760,000 faces and 145 materials in only 43 seconds. Older versions of SU Podium required over 12 minutes to complete the same task.
360 degree Podium Panoramas:
v2.5 Plus also has an eye toward client presentations with the introduction of Podium Panoramas. The new feature allows users to render a 360 degree panorama of any SketchUp scene, which can be converted to an interactive presentation from directly within SU Podium.
Panorama presentations can be sent directly to clients or embedded on a web page, and lets your client control a camera to “look around” the design as if they are standing in the space. Panoramas convey far more information in a single render than ever before, and retain the beautiful lighting and photo-realism you’ve come to expect from a Podium render.
This link shows an example of SU Podium’s Panoramas using Sphere Cast’s VR hosting site (in beta). You can also generate the Panorama directly from SU Podium’s image editor.
The SU Podium v2.5 Plus upgrade is available to existing Podium users for $29.95 in the Cadalog webstore, and $198 for new users.

SU Podium v2.5 has both 32 bit and 64 bit versions for Windows 7/ 8 and Mac OS-X. It requires SketchUp 2015 or 2014. Thirty day trial versions can be download from here.
