Materials and Textures
Colors are directly converted into Prospect, and textures up to 100MB are supported in Prospect. All standard image types are supported as well, including JPG and PNG. Other material libraries (such as V-Ray, Maxwell, or Podium) are not currently supported. Read about settings here.
All SketchUp layers can be enabled or disabled in Prospect at any point in real-time. Toggling on/off layers in Prospect is an excellent way to showcase different design options, highlight different material combinations, or walk through several layouts. By default, Prospect will maintain the layer visibility of your last saved scene. Read about layers here.
The sun location in Prospect is taken from the SketchUp file geolocation. Learn more about geolocation from SketchUp's website here.
Any billboard or face-me components in SketchUp will also maintain this behavior in VR.
