Lighting using Shaderlight for SketchUp

Shaderlight uses physically based lighting features to give your visualisation the edge. The videos below give you an overview of the different lighting options available in Shaderlight and Shaderlight Pro as well as how to use them to achieve photorealistic results.

Please note: In our last release we changed the name of the lighting mode in the settings menu; 'Direct illumination' is equivalent to previous versions 'Exterior' while 'Global Illumination' is equivalent to previous versions 'Interior (GI) '(the standing for global illumination). We renamed the options in response to improved global illumination that is now suitable for both interior and exterior use.
