Here is the latest batch of renderings we produced at Tiltpixel. These were all modelled in SketchUp and even rendered in SketchUp using Chaos Groups V-ray for SketchUp plugin.
We were quite impressed with how much we could push v-ray inside SU. It's the same old rendering engine, and even supports proxies and vray-RT. For objects that were high poly, we relied on using .vrmesh files. It has everything else in it from render elements and vray 2 sided material to distributed rendering.
