Once you have finished installing Boost Cloud, you will need to log into the app using your log in details. To open Boost Cloud folder, right click on Boost Cloud Icon on system tray and select “Open Folder “ Boost Cloud “”. Within this folder, there will be a sub-folder with the name “Project_Files:” This is where you should put the source files you wish to be rendered. Your files can be archived or native application scenes.




Step 2 (Packaging Scene Files)

The only supported format for automated SketchUp job is .vrscene file.


How to Export VRScene File?

To render still frame jobs, you need to export a VRScene file for each view (Sketch up Scene).

Open V-ray “File Path Editor”:
Here are 3 different colors of assets so we want to make sure all assets are visible to V-ray and can be exported properly: Firstly enable “Overwrite files” then SELECT ALL THE ASSETS IN THE LIST and press “Re-path and Archive” button and then create a new folder where you want to locate collected maps.
All the assets have turned to green now, this means V-ray can find path for all the maps.
Now it’s time to export VRScene file in the same folder.
Finally you should make a ZIP or RAR file from all the assets + main VRScene file.

Step 3 (Submission):

The first thing you need to do is to log in to your user panel. Then, select Sketchup render farm(automate farm)submission and choose your version of Sketchup – this should be based on your file settings.

The following essential submission inputs below are required. You should endeavor to fill them out carefully according to your rendering demands. The advanced option gives you more control and management over the submission process.
