How to Use Affinity Photo for Post Processing SketchUp architectural models?

Recommended Posts

SketchUp now has a series of "Learn" videos which can be accessed directly from within their apps.


There is a very large SketchUp user-base of architects.  SketchUp models can be export to bitmap based files; specific rendering styles can be used saved in SketchUp to individual scenes (pages) each of which, in turn, can be exported.  The Learn videos describe the process of post processing the exported files in PhotoShop. 

I have talked with architects at a recent SketchUp conference (Base Camp 2019) who are self employed or belong to a very small firm.  They have limited resources and prefer not to rely upon Adobe products.  They could very well be interested AffintyPhoto for doing their post processing tasks.

 I am not a PhotoShop user, but I assume  everything shown in the Learn videos can be done in AfffinityPhoto. 

I was wondering if the SketchUp Learn videos could be looked at by the folks at Affinty and  an AffinityPhoto video be created  which would show how AffinityPhoto could be used instead ... and perhaps be easier to use?


Regards,  John

From what I've seen of the videos I'd say all of the work shown in the video's can be done in Affinity Photo.
