SketchUp is a popular 3D web app for creating quick 3D models (which apparently isn't owned by Google anymore). Sketchup is good for quick 3D without getting too far in the weeds with the nitty gritty of working in a full 3D environment. Once in a while, I'll get a SketchUp model for a project that someone started, and that I need to build on, or I'll find a 3D asset online to use that isn't in .c4d, but has a SketchUp option. Now in Cinema 4D R17, you can easily import SketchUp models with all of the geometry and texture goodness. Learn how to do it in the video above!
There are so many new features in Cinema 4D R17, I put together several more videos taking a deeper look at new features. Check out these additional topics for more coverage of Cinema 4D R17!
