October 17, 2013 -- The introduction of Lumion® in 2010 changed the concept of architectural rendering. Since then AEC professionals have experienced for themselves why 3D expertise is no longer needed to create compelling visualization videos. It’s no wonder 25 of the World’s top 100 architect firms are now using Lumion as an indispensable tool for their 3D renders.
Version 4.0 of Lumion® takes things to a whole new level and yet builds on its well-known usability, quality and world-beating speed.
The new text functionality turns videos and real-time fly-throughs into complete presentations - without the need for a video editor. Text can now be embedded in scenes to point out areas of interest while configurable titles make introductions and credits come to life, using a range of typefaces and stunning visual effects.
Beautiful looking grass can now be added with a click of a mouse. It sways in the wind, can be dotted with flowers and adds a much sought-after, natural feel to scenes. Grass this easy, is not available anywhere else. Continuing the nature theme, it is now possible to add colour to vegetation and when applied together with the falling leaves effect, creates a wonderful atmospheric Autumn landscape.
Other features include a sun study effect, more materials like marble and linoleum, and improved lens flares, fountains and an even more realistic ocean. The enormous model library, delivered free with the commercial licenses has been expanded with almost 300 new or improved people, plants, trees, animated aircraft, houses, cars, boats and many other models, all of which are available with Lumion Pro 4.0.
Lumion 4.0 will be available in November via regional authorized resellers or via www.lumion3d.com.
Customers who buy Lumion 3 after the 1st of October get a free upgrade from version 3 to version 4.
