Radiosity might help, but depends on the size of your scene. Since Revit/Accurender lacks any kind of "global illumination" I usually place a few "studio lights" in my scene to cast additional light up toward the ceiling and other objects that are too grey. You can find the "studio lights" under lighting in the Revit library. They are essentially "orbs" of light not tied to a real light fixture. Place them at the mid point between your floor and ceiling for the best effect and not too close to walls or other objects so as not to get hot spots in your rendering. HTH Tom

There is a setting in the materials editor for self luminance, adjust this approx 0.100.

Wow, this works? I suppose I've had the same problem with grey ceilings myself - adding studio lights is just so tedious!

Actually, just check the "glow" box in you Gyp Board material, and they will be whiter. But, in actuality, look at the ceiling where you sit at currently...it's a shade of gray, isn't it? Mine is....
