Has been using Kerkythea for two years, Im using lighup for a month, still learning and has been a good experience, It´s allready my primary presentation program now and I hope to start using it more often as a desing tool.

Here are some videos, I don´t know how to embed them in the forum, if anyone can help.

These are fantastic! the lighting is really well done. I've not got anywhere near this level yet especially for interiors. I wonder, could you post what your lighting settings where? i'm finding my interiors very dark with dark areas yours look well lit everywhere.
what animation where you using? flightpath? I've not expolored yet with animation plugins although recording and flying the camera yourself is always fun. editing afterwards helps cut out the crap bits when you fly into a wall.
great stuff

The animation it´s done with the standard sketchup scenes, just been careful. For the lighting for interiors i use the Screen with AO option, you have to first render using ambient occlusion, the value of Blend will control how much it will affect the Direct Sources Render.

Using 0.5 in ambient occlusion.

in direct Sources render, be sure to check Screen with AO

Now using 1 in Blend

You can try to use other types of blend. Most of this I learn here:
