SketchUp plug-in 3D PDF Exporter does not see the PNG files?

Postby energysnake » Tue Oct 04, 2011 11:55 am

Hello!

This is my first post on your forum and I welcome warmly OK I go to the heart of the matter.
The company where I work purchased your SketchUp 3D PDF Exporter
I am currently working in Sketchup 8, the plug does not show PNG files after exporting to PDF.
Is there any update or some way to be visible when you export a PNG elements
I really depend on that because this format has a transparent background which gives a great effect for the imposition of subtitles and logos in sketchup and what would it look cool when you export.

Very please answer or perhaps you have a way to solve this problem.
Can create a logo in another format, but must have a transparent background.
How will you can also send us an example of what to do

I joined a sample file.

Yours

The plugin exports textures but not not stand alone images unattached to any geometries.
The easy work around is to attach the PNG as texture for a small rectangle plane.

We will look into adding support for this in the next release.

Hi,

I can merge the texture of the logo, but the dimming of color textures also darkens the logo which introduces spurious terms of visual appearance: /

When you can expect some updates with support for PNG, JPEG?

Did you try to set the base color to be White
