iClone & Google 3D Basecamp 2010

Reallusion iClone and Google SketchUp join forces for the 2010 Google 3D Basecamp in Boulder, Colorado.  Google hosts 3D Basecamp every two years to bring the SketchUp community together for a couple of days of unconferencing where attendees determine the agenda and showcase the best of the best from the SketchUp elite creators. 

Google SketchUp users enhance their 3D models with iClone real-time rendering creativity using instant trees and grass, quick actor creation and advanced lighting, HDR visual effects, easy camera work and overall scene animation.  SketchUp users turn to iClone as a post-modeling animation and visualization tool for the same reason they choose SketchUp as a modeling tool.  SketchUp greatly simplifies the modeling process and iClone does the same for animation and visualization polish.

 Google invited 150+ SketchUp users from around the world to bring their skills and experiences to Google’s Boulder HQ and convene for the launch of Google SketchUp 8, fireside talks with SketchUp visionaries and presentations from, “Friends of SketchUp,” which is where Reallusion was asked to join in the fun.  iClone has been an extension of Google’s SketchUp since Reallusion introduce the Google SketchUp SKP and Google 3D Warehouse compatibility through 3DXchange.  

Reallusion’s John Martin, II and James Martin attended and presented the iClone and SketchUp pipeline including SketchUp visualization in Stereoscopic 3D through Reallusion’s Authentic 3D powered by iClone.

The SketchUp community congregates at where you can find amazing artists, architects, set designers and more folks showcasing their work, helping each other and welcoming newbies to the world of Google SketchUp.
