I use a faint line overlay when using Podium to render, but in Walker GPU the view seems to be slightly different than that in SketchUp's. I've tried matching the resolutions exactly but the view of always different and lines won't match up correctly. Am I missing something? I'd really like to be able to add some line detail, especially in cabinetry where I rely on this as opposed to modeling in fine details.

Yeah because the shape/size of the ProWalker window is arbitrary I could see how there might be issues.

I haven't tried this, but I think you should be able to use Eneroth's viewport resize plugin to force the SketchUp viewport into exactly the same aspect ratio as your ProWalker viewport.  It has to be done in this order, because I don't think Eneroth's plugin can target the ProWalker viewport:

1. Save a SketchUp scene
1. Because the ProWalker sync button is only works in one direction I think it's important for you Prowalker camera to be derived from a saved SketchUp scene. (Meaning: don't move the camera once ProWalker is open)
2. Do a quick still render to determine the exact resolution of you ProWalker viewport.
3. Use Eneroth viewport resize to force the SketchUp viewport to that exact resolution.
4. Press the camera sync button in ProWalker -- just to make sure they are still lined up.  Render your final / full quality image at whatever resolution you need, just don't change the aspect ratio.
5. Export your line overlay from SketchUp -- you can scale up the resolution in export options to get cleaner anti-aliasing, and again just make sure you don't change the aspect ratio.

Will try this when I get a chance.

Yep, seems to work!  Let me know if you need any clarification on the steps.  Will make a page for this when I can.

Sorry Tim, I’m not particularly expert with ProWalker.

I do have it and I do use it, but the vast majority of my work, and my time - is spent on the Mac, and there isn’t a version for OS X.

Justin is the PW expert. :)
