Got an idea to improve SketchUp?

Panoramic Image Exports

I'd like to see SU export cylindrical and spherical panoramic images for use as backgrounds in SU and external renderers.

It is possible to export normal images as
backgrounds now but I never do that because the quality is allways better when I do it as postprocess in PS. It may be however usefull as a reflection on glass and so.

Not much use in external renderers, but I've had good luck using the watermark feature to place backgrounds, skies, etc inside the model and than export the whole scene. Take the extra step out of doing it in photoshop, and you also get nicer edges, transparencies, shadows than having to cut out the background in photoshop to put in a background or sky.

Depending on the background though, it can somewhat limit the scene shots.
