KITS collaborator Tutorials
The first resource we want to recommend is the many tutorials that we have on The KITS collaborator Knowledge Center. Here you will find tutorials for pretty much any feature of The KITS collaborator. You will find tutorials broken down into several categories to make things easier to find. From getting started with KITS collaborator, to account management, to rendering and exporting, we’ve got you covered.
These tutorials are written out in step-by-step instructions with screenshots directly in The KITS collaborator that highlight the tools and features and how to navigate the user interface. You can search the many tutorials here and even get recommendations on what tutorial you may be looking for.
We highly recommend that this be the first place you visit as these tutorials cover a wide range of topics and are generally a quick read if you are coming in with a specific question and want to find an answer quickly.
The KITS collaborator YouTube Playlists
If you are a visual learner we recommend checking out the several playlists we have available on the KiSP YouTube channel for The KITS collaborator. We have a playlist for both iPad and Windows users that each has 10+ videos on how to get started with The KITS collaborator and get acquainted with the features. Both feature imagery and video are recorded directly in the software so you can see exactly how to use all the available features.
We recommend following along inside The KITS collaborator so that you can get a feel for using the software as you learn from the video tutorial. There are also video tutorials for features included in The KITS collaborator XRPro edition that show you how to access and use the AR and VR features included in that edition.
We have a lot more video content available for you in our KITS Webinar Wednesday archives. Every so often we will hold a Webinar Wednesday where we have a webinar on a requested topic or feature, or showcase a newly added feature. When these are scheduled we do post about them on our socials and share them with KITS users. However, we do have a large archive of previous webinars available online that can be watched on demand.
Similar to our tutorials and YouTube channel, these webinars are broken up into series and categories that you can explore to learn more about The KITS collaborator. We have a general FAQ series that may explore questions that you may have about The KITS collaborator. We also have a series on the rendering features and how you can improve your renderings and start selling visually.
