What You Will Learn
Lumion uses real-time 3D technology to provide immediate visualizations and create images in a fraction of a second without the long hours of rendering. With an outstanding collection of high-quality plants, trees, cars, buildings, people, and materials, any complex and challenging task can be handled easily by Lumion.
This is a practical guide featuring time-saving techniques along with established production tips for efficiency and swiftness in producing professional architectural visualizations in Lumion. The initial chapters provide a solid foundation by covering the solutions for typical problems when modeling for Lumion and how to create realistic and proficient terrains. You will also learn the best techniques to create believable materials and populate the 3D world with Lumion's models. Special chapters are reserved not only to improve the lighting and reflections in Lumion, but also to take the best from Lumion's effects. Finally, you will create powerful animations to bring life to any walk-through visualizations and export them as a movie or still images.
