    This is something I had left aside for some time (it supported Revit 2016 and I had 2018).
    The last couple versions support up to Revit 2018 which I just found out.

    Info (and trials) at: https://light-up.co.uk/revit
    It might be difficult to get much on their Revit version so here's a blurb:

    LightUp enables realtime rendering inside Autodesk Revit and can export ultra high resolution Stills in seconds. Walk or fly around your models, edit materials instantly, take spot light level measurements and export Stills directly into your Revit project.

    Features include:

    Revit IES light sources
    Revit materials
    Physical Sky
    Realtime shadows integrated with Revit Sun
    Realtime lightmeter measurements (including insolation)
    Entourage from ArchVision
    Ambient Occlusion
    Section Planes
    Export to iPad / Android tablet

    There's a minor upgrade to v5.6.8 but not worth the cracking effort.
    Then again, two out of the three improvements would be important to me. Hmm. Food for thought.

    Change log:

    - reduced memory usage
    - improved rendering performance
    - better scaling of text
