Edit: Developer sorted out all problem, it seems that my video card wasnt configured correctly. Advice for anybody having strange behaviour: see that all video related settings are as should be.

I leave the original remarks so you can see what problems could have this easy solution to

Opinion after using the plugin after a few weeks: its all fine.

((((((((((((Very dissapointed, actually doesnt work at all.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t8V6pPHMSEo - had to start a paypal negotiation.

Crashing - ok, a few wouldt be a problem. But the clip show that fundamental functions dont work.
My model is a tiny house, nothing over complicated.

rendered video is completely without all the lighing effects, and very very dark compared to on screen representation.

I have installed quite a few sketchup extensions - but nearly all of them are turned off.

I am willing to return in say half a year once the product improves.

Regards, Zoltan )))))))))))

Yes, we had a configuration issue earlier. Please login, go to Downloads and press the Re-Download button.

It worked this time. Thanks!

I have just purchased the Perpetual Macintoch Lightup V5 for sketch up. I have followed all of the steps below...numerous times

1. Launch SketchUp 2017
2. Open menu Window->Extension Manager
3. Click on Install Extensions...
4. Select the LightUp .rbz file.

When the .rbz file is selected, nothing happens. What is mean to happen? I can't get this to work and I need this working NOW!

Please let me know what is going wrong, otherwise I request a full refund.

Not sure what happened, but this morning it began to work! Maybe you had to give it 24 hrs??

Thanks!

I had the same problem. It seems that it takes a long time to download before it will install.

I downloaded the retail version of this plug in, but despite the fact the money was debited from my account, the downloaded file wasn't operable using the Windows Extension Manager.

Not impressed.

I owe a big thank you to LightUp! I had an important presentation to a client today, Monday morning. I decided to download LightUp Software on a Saturday evening and had problems because I hadn't deleted the demo version first. LightUp answered all my questions on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning. They resolved them. I presented to the client this morning. The client loved the design and presentation. We have the contract. The contract is worth 200 times the annual cost of the LightUp software. If you're reading this and wondering about getting LightUp....get it!

The LightUp download is a .rbz file (SketchUp Extension). You need to launch SketchUp, open the Extension Manager and choose "Install.." to load the LightUp extension.

I know I need to launch SketchUp, open the Extension Manager and choose "Install, but when I select the 6Mb .rbz file nothing happens, and the free Demo version I downloaded yesterday no longer works either.

Please could you either sort this out or issue a refund.

Thanks

Hi Adam,
I am a MAC user, but somehow I downloaded and paid for the windows version of Light up
Is there a way to download the mac version without having to pay for it again?

Thanks
Chris

All sorted. Login and your account has been updated.

Nope. Once it finally rendered the window it added its own background in place of the one I had, then popped up two windows I couldn't remove to see the final effect. I could see the edges moving when I manipulated the angle but the windows were stuck there. Pass.

How to use EULUMDAT files in the LightUp? Possible?

Hi

LightUp currently supports reading IES files only.

Adam has been using SketchUp since version 4 when he was working in the video games biz at Criterion. LightUp grew out of the desire to marry video game realtime graphics with the great usability of SketchUp.
