Interior by Pikadili89

By combining the rendering speed and quality of Indigo with a high quality plugin for SketchUp, you can create great images so good that your friends and clients won't be able to tell if it's a photo or computer generated.

Key Features

Photorealism, supercharged

Indigo's easy to use material models make developing realistic materials a breeze. Add displacement maps to bring your surfaces to life with incredible detail.

Combined with unbiased, physically based GPU and CPU rendering and realistic camera apertures, you're ensured stunning image quality with low render times.


Use the built-in Indigo Scattering to quickly and efficiently make detailed vegetation. Choose from multiple included presets, or make your own.

Indigo for Sketchup also supports the popular plugin Skatter, which lets you use brushes and advanced parameters for scattering your plants and other geometry, all while using very little memory.

Light Layers

Material Database

The built in browser lets you download, use and edit over 600 realistic materials

Creative lighting

Area and mesh lights, Sun & Sky, HDRI and IES light sources at your disposal.

Section planes

Use section planes to get an inside view of buildings and constructions.
The great lighting system of Indigo does the magic more or less automatically when you use a physically correct environment
