Today, the latest version of UNDET for SketchUp has just come out with new features and the possibility of using it in the latest version of SketchUp (v.2019).
The main novelties are two mainly, on the one hand the option to create SketchUp scenes in which the point cloud is included and by extension the possibility of exporting the animation including this cloud and the second one is to be able to use UNDET in the last SketchUp version (and apparently quite stable).
To be able to use scenes with the included cloud of points you must first create the scene in SketchUp and then press the add scene button of UNDET, this is the only requirement, the other icons of the new toolbar are used to remove scene from undet , export animation and visualize the animation within SketchUp (play).
When exporting the animation we will open a window in which we can define the number of frames per second (up to 30) and the quality with a remarkable surprise because it allows up to 4K.
From there the program only export images in png format that we must then mount in video editing program or similar to obtain the final video, you can see an example of an animation created with undet for SketchUp in the following video.
Another of the novelties is the possibility of sending the image created with cloud of points included to LayOut which can be more than positive when it comes to layout information for presentation of works at a professional level.
Although it must also be said that the export only generates a .layout file that includes an image and not the model with the included point cloud which would be really positive, it is true that we can directly export the views with the included cloud from SketchUp but it's nothing we couldn't do with a normal export from SketchUp itself. No doubt the next step will be to include the point cloud in the SketchUp model within LayOut.
There are also corrections of problems found in previous versions and some minor developments such as the one that allows you to hide, show or isolate a specific scan by right-clicking on the UNDET option.
Good news and, above all, the appearance that certain instability problems present in the previous version have finally been solved, for example when checking the remaining license days.
