LightUp for SketchUp

Starting in 2008, the motivation for LightUp grew out of the desire to bring together the fast workflow of Google SketchUp, with cutting-edge realtime lighting technology. With all this working within the SketchUp Window with familiar SketchUp Tools. The key focus is fast workflow, simple to use, high quality realtime lighting.

Today, LightUp is used widely in:

  • Interior design / Set design
  • Movie pre-production and production
  • Video game asset creation
  • Solar analysis

The main developer of LightUp is Adam Billyard who has been involved in 3D graphics for over 25 years. Prior to starting LightUp, Adam was co-founder of Criterion Software which revolutionized aspects of the video games industry production process. He has been involved in video game development for many years - his first published game was with Atari in 1983.

LightUp is developed in Brighton, UK which is on the sunny south coast of England - no really, we do get some sun!

SketchUp has never looked so good

LightUp is the fastest and simplest SketchUp renderer on the market.

Thousands of professionals, from one-person architecture practices to movie-makers at Pixar, choose the LightUp plugin for SketchUp to instantly illuminate their models and show their work in the best possible light.

Welcome to true real-time rendering

Welcome to true real-time rendering

LightUp is the only SketchUp renderer that uses object-based rendering. This means you get stunningly accurate and beautiful results instantly inside the SketchUp window.

The speed of LightUp makes it perfect for the way designers work. You can tweak and iterate your models and immediately see results. There's no waiting around for minutes or hours as with old-fashioned ray-tracing renderers.

Move the camera around your model and watch everything render perfectly in real time.

Create fly-through movies and export a file that can be played by your clients in their web browser.

Whether you're working on product visualisations, architectural designs or immersive 3D experiences, LightUp gives you speed, quality and simplicity in a single SketchUp extension.

Realtime walkthroughs

LightUp gives the ability to have realtime walkthrough and flythough of your fully lit model, all running inside the SketchUp window. Simply place light sources in your Sketchup model switch to Touring mode and you can explore how your model looks from any angle. Change the time of year / time of day to perform shadow analysis using the advanced Rayleigh sunlight model.
Add a 3D backdrop in the form of a Skybox or HDR Panorama images to situate your model in a realistic surrounding. Use SketchUp Scenes tabs to author a scripted navigation around your model or take manual control and walk around your model to get a realistic sense of how your lighting works.
Simple Dynamic Components are supported in Touring mode, so for example doors can open automatically as you approach to give a seamless navigation.

High quality Results

While Touring your model, you can create instant High Resolution Stills from the current viewpoint so you can iterate quicky through a whole range of ideas. Resolution of Stills is only limited by available memory - presets for common 300dpi page sizes are available as well as standard 1920x1080, 3840x2160 sizes. All of these can optionally produce the accompanying floating point depth maps to allow further post processing.
As well as anti-aliased still images, LightUp can create AVI Movies of your model in a fraction of the time of traditional rendering packages right up to 1280x720 HD format. Advanced features such as motion blur are supported for a natural look.
Instant one-click exporting of Panoramas in a variety of layouts is also supported and can be used as Skyboxes within subsequent LightUp models or used to produce Quicktime VR files to share with others.
Exporting your lit Sketchup model is supported using Autodesk FBX files which can then be imported into other Applications that support multi-layer materials. A one-click export/import workflow is supported for the popular Unity game authoring system.

Light Sources

Adding light sources to your model is quick and simple and requires just placing a SketchUp Component at the position you want a light source and editing its lighting properties. Entering a Lumen value for your light source gets you started in seconds. Adding an IES luminaire definition file (available online from most manufacturers), allows you to evaluate lighting using real fittings. IES Type A, B and C light types are supported in LightUp making it ideal for both interior and exterior lighting design. Tools for orienting/targetting entire groups of lights make light rigging super quick as does the ability of LightUp to filter all light sources through any gobo or indeed any non-opaque materials the light passes through.
Naturally, Area lights are supported with controls for both Lux (Lumen/square meter) as well as spread angle.The Rayleigh sunlight model provided by LightUp can be tweaked both in terms of Power and Turbidy to get the look you want as well simply being disabled. A powerful feature of LightUp is Image based Lighting which will use you backdrop as a global light source to illuminate your model. This technique ensures you have lighting that is complex and yet naturally blends with the backdrop.

Lux/Insolation Analysis

A powerful feature of LightUp is to produce pseudo colored models showing the distribution of light within your model. These models can be explored in Touring mode as normal and allow a deep exploration of the analysis results. Lux Analysis shows the distribution of direct local light in your model and provides a realtime lightmeter to take spot Lux measurements. Insolation Analysis takes account of the Geo-Location of your model as well as the current time of year, to produce a daily Kwh/m2/day visualization. As with Lux Analysis, a light meter gives spot results for the surface being hovered over but in addition a tracked value for the surface to aid Solar Energy analysis.
