My designer and I rotated the texture on a surface from a horizontal grain to a vertical which reads fine in the SketchUp model, but when rendering the texture reverts to the horizontal orientation.
I was not able to find anything on FAQ or tutorials to help with this...

sometimes podium reads the wrong face of the surface.
The best option to avoid this is to place the texture on both face's. For your problem now just reverse face's on the face's that are wrong and set them right on both side's.

Something that can cause disparities between texture direction in the viewport and render is if you accidentally painted on the group/component instead of the actual SketchUp faces without realizing it. The odd thing is that exploding the group and repainting the faces doesn't always seem to work. I think Podium must read direction information from the material
One solution that seems to work reliably is to right click the face that isn't cooperating and choose "Make Unique Texture." After doing that Podium should correctly render the texture as it is seen in the viewport. As a rule of thumb, make sure you are always painting materials directly onto the SketchUp face and not the group/component. __________________ What's New in SU Podium? What's New in Podium Browser?

Yeah happened to me, it was a reversed face with the texture applied on the group, So I exploded the group, check for reversed faces and paint the corrected faces with the texture, make group again and voila

I have inadvertently applied texture to a group on occasion and fought the resulting texture direction. __________________ pmo
