Hey there

Hope yo find it useful.

Hi Ian,

Having problems installing these plugins on Mac. Care to expand as to how? I have tried dropping them into the PLugins folder with the application, and also adding throught Preference/Extensions, but no joy.

Ah forget that, renaming the .zips as .rbz, then adding through Preferences/Extensions worked :thumbsup:

Correction. It worked for the LWCamera export but not for the lwo-005 plugin.

many thanks ian for that fantastic tutorial, i learned a lot, did not know to use sketchup for cameramatching, perfect :)

Update for installing the lwo-export:
Unzip the .zip and place the files (without the licence and readme) and place these files into Applications Support/Google Sketchup/Plugins.
You may have to create the Plugins folder.
open Sketchup Goto preferences/Extensions, the plugin should be visible to tick.

Thanks. Great tutorial. Would be very helpful if you could post a link to that Sketchup Camera plugin. A search of the forums produces a thousand results or nothing relevant. Maybe I'm doing it wrong. Thanks!
