And with the preprocess it will not allow realtime changes...
That's correct, but then again, who lets their client touch a work in progress model?
The idea is to get a massing model, send to client who can walk around it see the lighting, details and approve. It's a Sketchup only tool at this point (I'm not sure if there are plans for integration into other modeling apps)
There are three presentation options, draft, preview and final. Draft is very fast to process and it would generally be used as an intial visualisation tool, preview is great for lighting and reflections then final is the longer process that could be used as a presentation solution.
