During this lock-down I have been learning how to use a few software programs suitable for my major. Generally we tend to use softwares for three-dimensional modeling, and two-dimensional drawings. Namely rhinoceros, autodesk autocad, and autodesk revit. Now I have started using rendering softwares, namely lumion and twinmotion. Both softwares have one thing in common. They both have a gaming interface. Which means you can use them as if you were playing a computer game, using the same keys as you would in a game.
The advantage of learning this software is, it helps increase employment chances. More architectural and engineering firms are sorting after render specialists, and even visual effects companies as well. If you have seen a lot of movies in the past decade, you realise that more movies are relying on visual effects to achieve great scenes. I have been learning through youtube tutorials, and tutorials offered by the Arch Tech department, which is very helpful. The good thing is that both softwares are free for students in the United States. So, if you are interested in learning any rendering program that is very easy to use, I recommend getting any of these two softwares.
