LightUp for SketchUp

SketchUp Tutorial

LightUp for SketchUp facilitates the sketchup users to transform any sketchup scenes to the next level by inserting realistic, realtime lighting to the sketchup models. The sketchup users can put elegant reflected light, area lights, point lights, sunlight as well as soft shadows, subtle heading etc.

After giving lighting effect, the sketchup users can explore their lit models in realtime and produce stills having high resolution (9000x5000) and stunning movies with sketchup scenes. The sketchup users can also make a walkthrough of their model.
