What is ArchiKlip? 

ArchiKlip is a web app for SketchUp that uses the power of cloud-rendering to automatically render and animate scenes in photorealistic detail, then export as mp4 video.

☁️ How does it work?

Using artificial intelligence (AI), ArchiKlip takes pre-set scenes from SketchUp then uses our cloud-rendering engine to analyze textures, quickly classify them into millions of predefined photoreal texture categories. 

These categories are then assigned to materials inside the model and rendered in real-time—this means the entire SketchUp animation is rendered in photorealistic detail with incredible fidelity in minutes.

➡️ ArchiKlip is fully automated. There is nothing to learn and nothing to code. Just drag and drop your .skp file!

🎞 How do I create a photorealistic fly-through video of my SketchUp? 

  1. Set up scenes for your animation in SketchUp 
  2.  Drag & drop the .skp file into the ArchiKlip web app 
  3. Wait for ArchiKlip to analyze the file, this may take several minutes
  4. Verify and accept the price quote for your video export
  5. Wait for the download link to arrive in your email inbox
  6. Download your mp4 video!

🤔 Will I know how much my film costs before I export? 

ArchiKlip analyzes your SketchUp file and lets you know how much your film will cost before you export and pay. 

You will need to verify and confirm payment before exporting. 


🍿 Can I preview my video?

Yes! Before exporting the video you can preview a version playing at a lower frame rate and without sound. 

ArchiKlip is fully automated so it is important to use quality textures in the original SketchUp model for the best possible results.

📁 Which file formats are supported by ArchiKlip? 

A‍rchiKlip currently supports SketchUp files. 


🔻Can I use ArchiKlip with Revit?

Yes, but first you will need to convert the file using the rvt2skp plugin (it's FREE with an active ArchiKlip account). 

Once you have converted your .rvt to .skp, you will need to review it, change colors to textures, then set up scenes before dropping the file into ArchiKlip.
