SketchUp importer on steroids

Convert various 3D formats to SketchUp files, with powerful features such as automated render-ready materials and proxiesgeometry simplification, as well as essential options like scalingunit conversionaxes/origin transformations and much more.

Automated render-ready materials

Automatically convert render-ready materials or tweak them with just a few clicks.

Transmutr extracts as much data as possible from the source file to automatically create render-ready materials. This saves you from tedious manual work to recreate materials that were already made in the source software (3dsmax, etc).
Of course, you can easily edit and tweak the materials by adding maps or adjusting the main values.

Automated proxies

With a single click, Transmutr can generate proxies for V-Ray, Thea and Enscape.

For the placeholder, you can choose between various options, like Bounding Box, Face Skipping, Simplified Geometry, Billboard, etc.

Geometry simplification

Simplify high-poly objects with millions of faces down to a few thousands or hundreds.

As SketchUp cannot handle very high-poly objects, Transmutr can drastically reduce the number of faces, while preserving the overall shape of the original object.
You can fine-tune the simplification level to get exactly the result you want.

Direct link with Quixel Megascans Bridge

With a couple of clicks, you can send Megascans assets from Quixel Bridge to SketchUp.

Transmutr will make sure everything is converted correctly, you will get all the materials settings set up in the Megascans asset, down to the perfect amount of reflection or displacement.

Adjust units, scale and axes

Scale the model, adjust the origin or change the Up Axis with just a couple clicks.

Clean model hierarchy

Transmutr keeps the model hierarchy, while simplifying it to avoid redundent nesting.

Transmutr supports instancing, and will generate components in this case. Otherwise, it will generate groups.

Simplify existing SketchUp objects

You can edit an existing component or group directly from within SketchUp, for instance if you want to simplify its geometry.

With the Studio version, convert hundreds of files at once by combining Material Automations and the Command-Line Interface

Material Automations

Studio only - Automations are user-defined rules that allow you to automatically and instantly edit multiple materials at once. Learn more

Command-Line Interface

Studio only - The Command-Line Interface is a very powerful tool that allows users to easily process large sets of models. Learn more

All render engines can benefit from Transmutr!

Transmutr generates render-ready materials and proxies for V-Ray, Thea and Enscape. But if you use another render engine, you can still take advantage of Transmutr's clean files, geometry simplification, direct link with Megascans, etc!

As of today, Transmutr can import SKP, FBX, OBJ, 3DS, DAE, and STL. We plan to add new formats in upcoming releases.
- An Artist license can be installed on two computers. For example, a laptop and a desktop workstation.
- A Studio license can be any number of seats, either as node-locked or floating license. Contact us.
No, you need a Transmutr Studio license to be allowed to sell the files generated by Transmutr. Including but not limited to: *.skp files, *.vrmesh files and *.mesh.thea files.

There are two exceptions in which case you are allowed to sell the files generated by Transmutr Artist:
- The files are created as a commission, and you sell them to the commissioner only
- You sell them through our upcoming marketplace

Why, you ask?
Because we feel it's fair that if you are a content creator for whom Transmutr is an actual production tool, you pay extra compared to a 3D artist who uses Transmutr just to add a few objects to a render, for example.
Separating these two types of licenses allows us to offer an inexpensive Artist License.
