Best Lighting add on for stage lighting

Hi does anyone know a good lighting rendering programme for adding stage effect lighting to a set. Want theatrical lighting but ideally with the option of everyday lighting for when doing exhibition stands.


There are options for adding lights directly in SketchUp. You should look at the various rendering applications. some of them install as extensions and many are stand alone applications. As to what is best, there is no answer. You need to try them out and see which one suits your needs.

These questions have been asked already.
Use the magnifying glass icon (upper right) to search the forum.
Example try the terms: “best renderer”

There is a difference with renderers. If you look at LightUp it does real time rendering, but it also can take any kind of light specification you like, and in the end can export images that show the light map for a scene.

This video gives an idea of how LightUp can work with existing lighting specifications:
