seaGrass mock-up video

Google is really incredible.

I decided to mock up one of the towers in SketchUp this morning to get some spacing I needed for the spring supports.  Easy enough with a little reading.

But I thought, why not use the model to see what it would look like in Nevada?  I geolocated the model to the Black Rock desert to get the right ground texture.  Then I duplicated the towers to get a sample arrangement.  Then I found a model of burningman someone built a few years ago.  Then I animated a fly through.  Then I published it to YouTube.

In total about an hour’s worth of work.  All with free software and very little training.  Geez.

So it’s a starting place for the fundraising video…
