liamrashotteYeah, is v-ray any good?
i've never used it for sketch up just for rhino. but from what i've used of it its very good if you know what your doing and have the time/ enough cpu to learn and play around with it. its professional software.
A lot of people i know have had large success with podium, key shot and cinema 4d. also if your not using vray on 3ds max it will be buggy and not as polished.
A bit of Photoshop will go a long way as well.
hope that helps.
