I just found SketchFX, and it looks like what I have been looking for. Very simple interface with stunning results. I have a few questions, though, before I decide to purchase.
Is there a limit to the SketchUp model size? Some of my models stop at 57% processing. I have found that it appears to run slowly on my system, even with incredibly small models. I am running SketchUp Pro 2016 on a 64-bit Windows 10 machine with dual core processor and 8 gigs of RAM. Would increased RAM help, or is this just how the system works?
