    Lumion 9 looking luscious

    Hard on the heels of Enscape 2.4 comes Lumion 9.

    There is something about Lumion renders and the only word I can think of that describes them is 'luscious'

    Cool stuff and UI improvements - the trailer goes on about how quick it all is, which is true, but I think the 'look' it imparts to a project render is what it's all about:

    The Surface Studio is gorgeous, but one struggles to believe the content on show was produced on one, not even with the full-fat spec'd 4GB 980M.

    I always liked Lumion as I could build my topography there on a larger scale vs a site model.

    Oh, is that what that was about - the hardware requirements of Lumion are pretty serious - maybe some firms have been complaining about it?

    "Revit Pure" has done a quick comparision of the different renderers for Revit (before the latest version of enscape with the additional assets etc)

    Must say, I agree with his summaries

    A problem I find with both Enscape and Lumion renders is to cut out the sky or background areas and insert site images within Photoshop.

    3dsMax allows this with an automatically produced Alpha channel mask which is pixel perfect at the edges whereas the two above leave very crude edges when the layers or coloured areas they supply to create such masks are used in Photoshop. It may be a Photoshop problem or it may be anti-aliasing in the actual renders - I've not got to the bottom of it but it's certainly a lot of trouble compared to renders produced in 3dsMax.

    /Later:

    I notice for whatever reason this seems to be working much better in Photoshop 2019/Lumion 9 - crisper edges in Sky Alpha out of Lumion - maybe it is just setting the Skylight 2 to Ultra
