I just wanted to share my newest technique/tool I've managed to get real 3d data from google earth (or maps if you will...) into sketchup, and thereby into Enscape. This is extremely usefull for site models and birds eye renders, as it allows us to get correct, detailed 3d models of the surroundings MUCH quicker than building it all yourself.
It has taken a LOT of trial and error to get to work, but when it does, it looks awesome
The process is quite complicated, and requires a bunch of different software, but once you have learned the process it can be done quite quickly.
Here is a short screen capture video showing the different stages it goes through (without details on how to actually do it):
Let me know if you want the details on how to achieve this
