LUMION 7.3: RELEASE NOTES

COMPATIBILITY
  • Please note that scenes and models saved in 7.3 are not backwards compatible with earlier versions.

NEW FEATURES

IMPORTING & EXPORTING
  • New Lumion® Plug-In for Revit® 2.0 update with LiveSync technology. This function establishes a live link between Revit and Lumion, so that model & material changes in Revit are transferred to a preview version of the model in Lumion in real-time. Full exports of Revit models now also include textures and colours from more Revit material types than ever before.
MOVIE/PHOTO MODE
  • Print/Poster image renderings: .JPG format has now been added as an additional option in the 'Save File' dialogue window. This format is now also the default format instead of .BMP format.

CHANGES & RESOLVED ERRORS

PANORAMA MODE
  • VR Panorama: The correct resolution text is now displayed while rendering.
BUILD MODE
  • Foliage is now clipped as expected by the Clip Plane.
  • OpenStreetMap: Objects placed on top of the OpenStreetMap model now snap to the surface as expected.
MOVIE/PHOTO MODE
  • Reflection effect: 3D Grass is now reflected correctly in planar reflections.
  • Rain effect: Artifacts are no longer visible in certain user-submitted scenes.
MOVIE MODE
  • Reflection effect: 3D Grass no longer flickers in planar reflections in a user-submitted scene.
  • Animate Spotlight Colors effect: It is now possible to animate AreaLights & OmniLights again.
  • Youtube tab: New 'Unlisted' setting. 'Unlisted' means your video will not come up in search results or on your channel either. Only those who know the link can view it, and you can share the link with anyone, even with those who do not have a YouTube account.
  • Mass Move effect: The wheels of Transport models now spin correctly when cars are turning in animations.
  • Hyperlight: A glitch that caused some sub-frames to go black in a user-submitted scene has now been fixed.
  • Shadow effect: Sun shadows no longer flicker in user-submitted scenes.
  • Lumion Educational Pro no longer runs out of memory while rendering movies.
  • Global Illumination effect: This effect is no longer disabled when you add an Animate Spotlight Colors effect.
  • NormalMap output: Static 3D silhouette people/animals are now rendered correctly.
PHOTO MODE
  • BMP, DDS and TGA images can now be saved correctly.
MATERIAL EDITOR
  • Standard material: Imported colours from SketchUp are no longer reset to white when you assign a Standard material to the model.
IMPORTING & EXPORTING
  • Revit: Using the mouse scroll wheel inside the Revit window during export no longer interrupts the process prematurely.
  • Revit: The help link in the Revit To Lumion Bridge user interface now works as expected.
  • Revit: A texture is now oriented correctly in a user-submitted scene.
MISCELLANEOUS
  • 'Office building' demo scene: The windows are now single-sided so that more glass layers can be seen through the inside of the building.
  • 'Lighting' demo scene: Unused effects in Photo mode have now been removed.
