Lights - lighting up exteriors and interior 1. Over 30,000 licenses have been sold. Using these render ready light fixtures can greatly reduce the time involved in setting up the SketchUp model for interior lighting. This is a powerful feature that lets you hide the light source but creates an evenly distributed light. Although the user does not have to be aware of what technology is being used, it's important to note that you can obtain high quality images with realistic reflection and lights, quickly. Sun light is another source of natural light. This provides hundreds of render ready light fixtures that have artificial lights embedded in them and are ready to render.
The user interface is simple and does not require advanced knowledge of rendering techniques. You can see the light group in SketchUp's outliner. Spot Lights Spot lights are a type of omni light but allow you to control the direction of the light and light fall off area. The sun's brightness and exposure can be controlled by a number of variables easily including SketchUp shadows time of day and year. Reflections, refractions, bump maps and other advanced properties can be applied to a specific SketchUp materials. For a summary of V2 Plus features in addition to the new items in V2. Although the user does not have to be aware of what technology is being used, it's important to note that you can obtain high quality images with realistic reflection and lighting, quickly.
What is processing scenes and why should I care? Sun light is only on when SketchUp Shadows are on. Sky light is an ambient light source applied evenly to the entire SketchUp background sky. In larger models, you will notice even more speed gains. When sun light is on, you can use to create a realistic sky background with atmospheric qualities such as turbidity. . When rendered these properties bring the model to life by reflecting light and the environment. To insert an omni light or point light, click on the point light icon in the tool bar and drag an omni light into the model.
Using this option can save you a lot of time in applying good reflection, blur, refraction or bump properties to materials if you are using SketchUp standard materials. You can use standard SketchUp materials as well higher resolution textures from a variety of libraries as well as Podium Browser content. The user interface is simply and does not require advanced knowledge of rendering techniques. Please read more detail about Spot Lights and the Podium Light System here. . .
