Site Insertion

Hi all.

Currently testing Cheetah wanting so much to love it (which I do) but...

I haven't been able to reasonably efficiently insert an architectural 3D model (imported from SketchUp) into a site photo. Basically, I'm looking for a methodology that will compete with Art*lantis site insertion tool.

Anyone have any ideas? I'd be interested to know what others are doing.

I'm not sure how Art*lantis does the site insert, but I use a free utility called setAlphaValue to make my SketchUp window transparent and overlay that on the image of the site which is open in a Photoshop window. Adjust, rotate etc. till it matches the the images perspective.

There's no reason why that wouldn't work with Cheetah.

Well, setAlpha Value works pretty well for a workaround.

Thanks again Jake.

I wonder though, whether a specific solution wouldn't be a worthwhile addition to the Cheetah toolset (as I think it would in any 3D package). I'm pretty sure that it would be a welcome addition by a significant number of users. In fact, it would positively be a highly sellable feature.
