Introducing our New SketchUp Rendering Extension: IRender SU

We are excited to announce the launch of our new SketchUp rendering extension, IRender SU. Give it a try today! Download a 30 day free trial. Check out the IRender SU videos on YouTube and read our IRender SU Case Study.

What's different? There are some significant improvements over IRender nXt including:

  • More Lights: IRender SU can handle a large number of lights, and these will start rendering immediately.
  • Unlimited Lighting Channels: IRender SU has unlimited lighting channels, which can be very useful especially for interiors (Note that the more you create/use channels the larger the rendering overhead (memory use)).
  • Faster: While all of our renderers use your computer’s CPU, the IRender SU engine loads and renders faster than IRender nXt/ArielVision. We are also using a denoiser, which speeds up image convergence.
  • High Resolution: The ability to do higher resolution images is much more feasible now than with IRender nXt/ArielVision.
  • Productivity. With IRender SU, you are more likely to be able to do other work on your computer with a rendering is in process.

If you have a license to one of our other extensions, contact us via the Render Plus Support Email if you are interested in switching to IRender SU. IRender SU is available as a subscription license only (monthly, quarterly, annual).
