Lumion produces images and video for visualisation. Rapidly. High quality output, suitable for client presentation, produced in minutes not hours, and in hours not days. Lumion provides a productive, highly focused realtime 3D environment for the creation of visualisation scenes rapidly. A simple import and update workflow is used to bring content through to Lumion. The Lumion real-time 3D environment is where a user completes the building of the scene, such as adding in terrain, sky and weather settings, scene objects, lighting, and other 3D content. Scenes can then be rapidly rendered to still image, or video animation to create high quality visualisation content.
Users can also provide direct presentation in realtime to clients. This is a truly fantastic tool for rapid visualisation and ease of workflow. This tool can fit into a visualisation pipeline/workflow to provide time savings and quality output. Lumion is already proving an invaluable time saver and hit with a growing number of architects and others in visualisation. It is being successfully used to provide more cost effective visualisation content to clients.
With the 3D rendering software Lumion, it has never been easier to create architectural visualizations of your 3D models. Simply add water, trees, people, cars and amazing weather effects, and render awesome videos in minutes. Or present the scene to your client as a real-time 3D fly-through. Faster and easier than ever before.
