Listing of available Rendering Extensions for SketchUp

This should be titled a partial listing; there are other SU compatible renderers available that do not appear on this list (some are identified earlier in this thread).


#4

SketchUp plugins/extensions only, standalone products are neither mentioned in this post nor relevant.


#5

Check against what comes up:
http://extensions.sketchup.com/en/search/site/render


#6

Some external renderers like ArtLantis can also open SketchUp files on their own, without the need to install exporter plugins into SU. That might be a third category.

Anssi


#7

‘Mitsuba’ is missing from this list…


#8

There’s this list too https://sites.google.com/site/sketchupsage/resources#TOC-Renderers


#9

Thea and Indigo can also render right inside Sketchup. You also missed Octane in that category.


#10

Blender and Rhino only


#11

done already.

#12

difficult to evaluate and maintain and probably a lots of, at least if not limiting to pure rendering apps only.


#13

[quote=“jiminybillybob, post:9, topic:11797, full:true”]Thea and Indigo can also render right inside Sketchup. You also missed Octane in that category.

Octane added, Thea moved.

according to their documentation SkIndigo cannot render inside SU.


#14

LuxRender is missing from the list. It installs as a standalone renderer but runs within SU. It is free and performs well.


#16

iRender nXt IS compatible with 2015…http://www.renderplus.com/wp2/wk/SketchUp_2015.htm


#17

@sketch3d_de

[Mitsuba SketchUp Extension…][1]

#18

iRender nXt updated, LuxRender/Mitsuba exporters added.


#19

AIR 14 has a SketchUp extension.


#20

• ‘AmbientOcclusion’ extension added
• Compatibility property removed (would need recurrent maintenance)


#21

Corona Renderer for SketchUp is also in alpha stage: https://corona-renderer.com/forum/index.php/board,34.0.html
You may consider to add that as well (It renders inside SU).
They hired couple of people just for SU earlier this month, so i’m expecting some faster progress in near future.
