Hello Fredo, is there a possibility of using twilight render when making a video instead of vray?
thanks, great job.

Yes, that is an option. I am not on my laptop right now so I can generate a screenshot.

You can add Twiligt Render to the section where you generate the video.

Again, sorry I cannot give you a screenshot.

Hello Animators,

I am doing a lot of animations for a project in construction.

Slowly I am understanding the tool better and better.

In a small project I am working on right know I have something that made me very happy, but I don't understand when it happens.

I copied a group which is animated. When I copied this file just next to it and play the animation both elements move. Which is great for enhanced workflow.

But when I copy another element that is also animated, it doesn't copy the animation. See pictures.

I tried everything but can't find the difference in the files or settings. Can somebody pleas tell me when it copies the animation and when not. I would love to copy with the same animation!

Thanks in advance!

Difficult to tell ithout having the model.

Be careful however with groups (versus Components). A freshly copied group behaves as a component, until you enter it. Then the group becomes unique.

Anyway, I am not sure you can copy an animation by copying a group. If this works, then it is by accident or unless you activate the Kinematics 'All instances', but hich orks for components only.

If you installed Twilight and it is a compatible version, it should automatically appear in the list of Rendering software in Animator.

Can you run Twilight in Sketchup (independently of Animator)?

Can you give me the version of Twilight.

Hi All,

Ref: macOS Sonoma 14.2.1 (23C71)


After Mac (Studio) update along with macOS Sonoma 14.2.1 I can’t seem to get FFmpeg to load, to create videos within Animator. Would rather record inside SU than using screen record etc. Would appreciate any help/ideas? > Love this pLugin.

Many Thanks,

Jerry

There may be a new version of FFmpeg compatible with Sonoma, as this upgrade of MacOS is causing several problems in many software, including Sketchup. Did you download and install a recent version, marked compatible?

I'll check on my side when I have time, although I did not upgrade to Sonoma.

I think I downloaded the latest version not 100% certain and not sure if it was Sonoma friendly? Doing several presentations (using Animator) at the moment and getting by with Screen Recording - so no rush. Many thanks!
