    Wow; that looks almost cinematic, and welcome to the forum.
    I have some questions as your two posts almost look like an ad for Lumion !

    1. What is your hardware setup ?
    2. What were your rendering times like ?
    3. What is the critical piece of hardware for Lumion: RAM ? Graphics Card ? or Processor ?
    4. Do you import everthing from revit or do you pare the model down ?
    5. How so you find the transfer / import into Lumion ?
    6. Is there a link function as with max, if the revit file continues to be worked on can you re-import it without doing all modification work again ?

    Thanks, Kamran.

    1. What is your hardware setup ? -AMD quad core, 4gb memory, ASUS m2n-e, 300gb SSD, nvidia gtx 6 series (My PC is old)
    2. What were your rendering times like ?- Rendering in Lumion is only 5-10 minutes or less.

    3. What is the critical piece of hardware for Lumion: RAM ? Graphics Card ? or Processor ? - GPU

    4. Do you import everthing from revit or do you pare the model down ? From 3d view export all to Collada (Lumion have a free add-in in revit to export 3d to collada file - .dae)

    5. How so you find the transfer / import into Lumion ? Very convenient - they have add-in for revit (like twinmotion)

    6. Is there a link function as with max, if the revit file continues to be worked on can you re-import it without doing all modification work again ? - Yes you can reload the model in one click and you don't have to re-map all the materials (just export the revise model the same filename)


    You can try Twinmotion too it works the same as Lumion but they more options and you make model internally.
    Thanks!

    LOL! You can try twinmotion too. I will post my twinmotion work when I'm done with my project.

    I've messed with Lumion a little (not the latest release, the prior one). It's pretty neat. It takes some getting used to, though. You don't actually "render". You set up a live scene, apply materials, put in trees and cars and whatever. Then, for your "rendering" you take a snap shot of the scene.

    You can even have birds hanging out on your chimney. If nothing else, it's a fun program to play around in.

    My scenes always looks a little cartoonish. How did you get around that? Also, on one house I did in Revit and linked into Lumion, the walls all looked like tilted walls. It had a weird vanishing point thing going on. I never could figure out why it did that or how to fix it short of starting over. Have you seen anything like that happen?

    It is a live scene but you still render. The snap shot that you took is not the actual render you are getting.
    If you save an image that's rendering. It's pretty much like a typical render engine - setting up your materials, sun, etc. and then render.
    You will see the quality differences between your snap shot and you final render..

    AAhhhh, so I was doing it wrong. But, when you take a snap shot, it lets you choose the quality and the image type. Is that not the same thing? It's been a while since I used it, so I'm going off memory here.

    Is the latest version way nicer than the previous?
