Would be great to get a realtime preview of the model with its light settings. It is so time consuming to wait 2.5 min and more for a testrender in lowest solution. would be great for next release. I compare it with render(in) at the moment. Ok, supodium still is better, but this fast preview in render(in) is really fantastic.

The preview would have to be a non-raytracing preview similar to Podium Walker's photo-realistic mode.  I think Render In uses ambient occulusion for their preview. I could be wrong but that would explain why it's so fast.  But the end result would be a lot different from the preview.
There's a couple of ideas we are tossing around.
1. If you try out Podium Walker (free beta), you can get  photo-realistic rendering with Podium lights. It's real time.  You have to setup the lights in SketchUp with Podium and then save the SU file and then import it into PW.  But my point being, at some point down the road, PW will work inside SketchUp so you could do quick previews to see how the lights worked.
2. In the very near future, SU Podium caching so second time rendering of the same scene will be much faster.
3. The almost near future, there should be a much faster way of processing the scene which often is the most time consuming portion of the rendering.
