Lumion 4.0

lumion-graph-215x300 Lumion 4.0The concept of architectural rendering entered a new dimension when Lumion was introduced in 2010. Professionals in the AEC industry have, since then, realised that in-depth 3D knowledge is no longer essential in order to create gripping visualisation videos and images in no time at all. The result, a quarter of the world’s top 100 architect firms now use Lumion as an irreplaceable tool for 3D presentations. With the launch of Lumion version 4.0, 3D rendering is taken to a whole new level of superior quality, familiar usability and immense speed.

New functionality now enables you to complete presentations with text-functionality that allows you to embed copy in scenes. The new ability to highlight significant areas in various scenes is easier than ever without making use of a video editor. Easily add descriptions, introductions and credits with configurable titles in a range of fonts with a versatile library of visual effects.

Add realistic grass with just the click of a button. Easily create life-like movement as you adjust the weather conditions to make the grass move naturally. Add a dash of colour with patches of flowers to make the scenes look sought-after and create an environment that complements your design. The “colour to vegetation” option allows for simple seasonal adjustment along with significant detailed effects: falling leaves effect can naturally enhance the beauty of an autumn landscape. Included features like the sun study, lens flares, fountains and amended lifelike oceans improve the creation of the perfect environment to showcase your building in a more professional way than ever before.
