Well, I hate to post images since I'm not a professional designer and the owner of Cadalog, Inc. so y'all tend to not criticize but simply ignore.  But had to post three versions of the same model, same camera perspective but using SU Podium V2.6 Beta, HDRI background and comparing with ProWalker in ID mode and in PR mode. The HDRI background comes from HDRI Haven.  Lake House -Nats-PB-PW2-NIGHT-pdm.png  So, I must admit it but in this case, SU Podium V2.6 seems to have the best result.  Artificial lighting (both point lights and LEM in the interior) just have more color.  The metal on the cars look better.  But.....
Lake House -Nats-PB-PW-NIGHTID3.png  This is ProWalker 1.1.7 using ID mode - 300 samples with Denoise on.  The one thing ID mode does not support is LEMs.  So I had insert a set of Light Fixtures to get more illumination in the interior.  The big advantage....very fast and ofcourse, moving around the scene.  Slightly different position for the HDRI because unlike V2.6, you can not rotate the HDRI, relative to the camera (yet).  Also, just left the physical sky lighting at 1.  Could have increased the brightness.
Lake House -Nats-PB-PW-NIGHT-PR1000-4.png  This ProWalker using PR mode.  Obviously the LEM is illuminating and a bit bright.  The nice thing about ProWalker is I can change the light power of LEMs and point lights globally, in real time.  Samples are 1000....probably over kill.  Could have got away with sampling of 500.

Original modeling was done by Nat.  I simply added living room assemblies, LFs in the interior, and added cars and trees.  Everything except the house is from PB.

Here is ProWalker video version of the above images.  To work around flickering point lights in the recessed lights in the roof, I had to use 60 FPS

You are quite right, there is a tendency to ignore...But I really like these short videos. It is simple, to the point and helps to convey the atmosphere of the project. From a professionnal standpoint, I cannot imagine any client not being impressed by it and that is one of the main goal I think.
