This is a project I've been working on for a few weeks now. The house will have stunning ocean views and will be located on the Great Ocean Road on the south coast of Victoria in Australia. The original building was modelled in Revit by the architect, but it came to me without any materials, topography or furniture and it took considerable time in Sketchup to get it 'Lumion ready'.

Modelling software: Sketchup Pro.
Computer: CPU i7 - 4790 3.6 GHz,16 GB RAM.
Graphics: Gigabyte GTX 980 Ti, 6 GB.

I realized recently that I forgot to use Speedray reflections for this project.

Here is a comparison. Notice all the extra detail reflected in the glass splash-back. The kettle reflections are much better. Also, the ceilings aren't as bright and the chair legs show much better detail.

Hi DerekW

Yes. Speedray certainly adds improved reflections on all of those sorts of surfaces. And sink and taps too. Thanks for the comparison.  :)

.. the ceilings aren't as bright ...
Speedray should affect reflections, but not the darkness of the ceiling.  Did you use HyperLight, and at the same value, for both of them?

Ah yes, you are quite right Peter. I used a small amount of hyperlight (25%) in the first image.

I have attached a new image for better comparison.
