Lumion 3D the ideal SketchUp render solution
How do is work : The models export complete with all used materials from SketchUp to Lumion. In Lumion we can add just the imported materials so control bumpiness and/or reflection to make them more realistic, or we can update the SketchUp materials with the provided Lumion materials. In case changes need to be made to the model, you just reexport the model from SketchUp and we can use the reload function in Lumion, and this retains all materials settings.
Once the model is fine we can dress the scene with the objects from the Lumion object libraries. Then we just need to set the lighting, sky and shadow settings and we are ready to generate images and start recording a movie sequence.
