There are some apps that seem to speeding time rendering for 3d max like , vray embree, vray quick_ render and solidrocks , i wonder if they work for sketchup too?
Fast render depends on the hardware, and there are many possibilities. For home or snall scale use look for GPU based software rather then CPU. An Example of this would be Thea for SketchUp or Octane.
Vray has GPU rendering but only for 3ds Max and not SketchUp.
Vray does do gpu / hybrid on SketchUp.
Oh really, is that a new feature?
Um, I’ve only been using it since 3.6.02 but it was there in 3.4 I think. It also uses the Intel Embree extensions
