I thought I would whip up a quick sample of how to potentially get the cove lighting effect that you are looking to do. I assigned an emissive quality to one of the textures imported from SketchUp to give it an overall "glow". I then added some effects: Global Illumination, Lens Flare, Vignette, Depth of Field, Shadow Customization, etc. The renderings took under 10 seconds after I applied the effects. The effect may not be perfect but it gives you an idea of what can be done. I am sure that some of the more advanced Lumion Pros in this forum could get a better result but this should help you determine if you should purchase a license or not. Obviously I suggest you do. You will not regret having this amazing tool in your arsenal!
