Thank's for the answer. I will try it out to see if it works with my set up.

Hello,

Sad to find out that my SU Podium render does not work with Skatter's enabling of parametric spread of vegetation inside of sketchup.  Grass is an extremely important aspect for the work that I do [architecture/ landscape design] and i'm sure for alot of designers as well.  The potentials of what Skatter brings to the table will definitely enable me to shorten the production time/ processing for my visualization projects especially post production work in Photoshop. I've been using SU Podium for about 3 years now and am a big fan because of the simplicity combined with the quality output of the renders as well as the number of contents within the podium browser.  I hope Podium will continue to develop and enable Skatter for use on Podium's rendering platform.  An announcement for when Podium will be compatible with Skatter would be great.  Thanks!

We know about this, it currently works but we need to support instancing to fully benefit. This is indeed coming in Podium 3. The timescale is likely to be several months unfortunately.

Skatter works fine, it's just the instancing that isn't implemented yet. Podium 2.6 is still in beta, so don't hold your breath for Podium 3.0.

However, it should work really well with ProWalker.

No, and I would not really recommend trying to use Skatter with real geo.  Even if you're careful about organizing layers and creating proxy objects, SketchUp performance still gets nightmarish.  IMO.

I am trying to find best way to make heavier proxy components ( for furniture , lamps,planters etc) appear at render only.
Layer panel plugin seems to do that. But, is that reliable enough? Sketchucation page says in footnote that some users file has got corrupted...so files should be backed up.( Which may be little difficult for iterative modelling and rendering process)
Anyone working with same may kindly advise please ?

Layers Panel does seem to work with my installation on Mac.

You can build your own Proxy components and turn them on with layers.
