Hello everyone! After seeing _InsertBetterNameHere_'s world thread I decided to create a simple tutorial on how to export Sketchup creations into Unity. This video is roughly eight minutes long but features almost everything you need to know from exporting Sketchup type models to setting up a scene and lightmapping it. There's no audio at the moment, but most of the video is self explanatory. Below is a list of topics the video covers:
 
- Exporting Sketchup models with proper material assignments and two sided faces
- Setting a light flare in Unity
- Setting a skybox in Unity
- Adjusting ambient light and fog color
- Lightmapping (AO, lightmap resolution, soft shadows, calculating lightmap UVs)
 
The video is available in HD quality (720p) for anyone who likes watching in full screen.

Thanks! All these people tried to make tutorials but your video will help many.
Although you should have used Quicktime X. Only available on OSX Snow Leopard. Or Jing...
AND ANOTHER THIN TO REMEMBER, once the .fbx is imported in Unity, change the settings of scale 1; the deafault is 0.001

I don't have Quicktime X and the regular Quicktime has horrible recording quality as does Jing.
