CLF Camera Recorder

This extensions records the navigating of a model and turns each frame into a scene to be made into a movie from within SketchUp, exports it out as a series of images to be turned into a movie using quicktime or any other capable video editor.

It is installed in Plugins > Chris Fullmer Tools > Camera Recorder.  Start recording and navigate the model.  Then stop recording.  Clear the recording if you desire.  Or export the animation into scenes, or into an existing folder.  Supports jpg and png file types.


First of all CLF Camera Recorder is the best widget or plugin I have ever seen in my life. It is most efficient plugin now a days. just like Messages for Boyfriends, Stupid but Funny Jokes, Breakup status in English and Information about William Shakespeare website are best in their field. If you have any dificulty about using of this plugin go to youtube and search about CLF Camera Recorder hundreds of videos you will get about it.

Works as described. Is it possible to write a script which will move the camera and record the scene? Its my first day using sketchup and any help would be greatly appreciated!

Cant figure out where my video is saved to. I would like to know. Also, when I tried to replay the video, it kept cutting between parts (start: small square. 3 seconds later: Complex house). I would like these problems to be addressed, so I can show my fellow workmates the things I can do through a video, so I don't have to do much

Hi Greg, if you access the Extension warehouse from inside of SU 2013, then you just have to click the "Install" button on this page and it will install itself for you.
