Virtual reality and rendering


I am using sketch up pro/ twilight render/ vr sketch with oculus 2.

My question is… would there be a way of viewing a rendered image in vr?

When I use vrsketch direct with sketchup it looks fantastic and really 3d. However, it has that cartoon unrendered look that sketch up has. Things like lights dont work unless rendered too.

Look forward to any advice or experiences that can be shared!

Hi @speakerneedlebag,

This is Aris from the SketchUp team.

I see that you have a SketchUp Pro subscription which gives you access to Trimble Connect AND Trimble Connect Visualizer. You can find more information about how to install and use Trimble Connect Visualizer in this great video by @Speaker.

Trimble Connect Visualizer offers some basic photorealistic rendering and it also supports Desktop VR, which means that you can directly push your model in Oculus Quest 2 via Oculus Link and SteamVR.

However, you should know that Trimble Connect Visualizer does not support geometry authoring (like VR SKetch) or artificial lighting. There are other applications in the market that natively support one-click photorealistic VR viewing along with support for artificial lighting such as Enscape, Lumion, Twinmotion, D5, and more.

I hope the above helps.
