PC USERS WITH ATI/AMD CARDS: MISSING SHADOWS
If you are a PC user with an ATI/AMD card and there are no shadows from cars or trees in Lumion, you need to update your graphics card driver software:

http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx


MAC USERS WITH ATI/AMD CARDS: MISSING SHADOWS
This problem is caused by too old graphics card drivers in certain Mac computers with ATI/AMD graphics cards. You should only follow this procedure if you have an Mac and certain object types such as trees and cars don't cast shadows in Lumion:

1) Exit Lumion

2) Go here to find out which version of Windows you have (32- or 64-bit):
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/827218

3) Download the attached iMac_Shadows_WinXX-bit.zip file that matches your version of Windows (32- or 64-bit).

4) Unzip the zip file.

5) Overwrite the following file in your Lumion installation folder:
    Lumion\Channels\89E051CA-4273-4EB9-89C8-5FD0CDA1B026.dll
IMPORTANT: Please do not send private messages and emails to members of staff - unless we specifically ask you to send us sensitive information, for example License Keys.

3.0.1 CHANGES & IMPROVEMENTS

BLEACH: The Bleach effect is now available in 3.0.1.

(2D) CLOUDS: Press U in Photo or Movie mode to temporarily see (2D) clouds in render quality in 3.0.1. This also works while you are adjusting the cloud sliders but just bear in mind that it does make Lumion slower while you're pressing the U key.

FOCAL LENGTH: In 3.0.1, this has been integrated in the Handheld camera effect as a slider that can be animated.

SINGLE IMAGES: In Movie mode there is a new Single tab in the Save Movie/Create movie from clip menus. This lets you render single images and export custom map types too (including Print and Poster resolutions).

CLIP TYPE -> IMAGE: It is now possible to apply effects to this clip type.

NAVIGATION: In 3.0.1 the navigation has been made a little easier:
  • Shift + AWSDQE -> Double speed
  • Spacebar + AWSDQE -> Super speed (even faster than the current top speed in 3.0)

HORIZON CLOUDS: The Far clouds effect from Lumion 2 has been be re-instated as a new effect called Horizon Clouds in 3.0.1. The shading of these clouds has also been improved so they match the other new cloud types.


BUGFIXES

32-BIT BUGS: It is possible to render MP4 videos and image sequences again in 3.0.1.

SHADOW RANGE: The Shadow range has increased to the same value as in Lumion 2.5 (slider range 0-2 instead of 0-1).

CLIP BAR: The damping has been reduced in order to make it easier to navigate in movies with many clips.

3D WALKING PEOPLE: The walking speed has been fixed in 3.0.1.

CTRL + RELOAD (NEW FILE BUTTON): This button has been moved so it is no longer obscured behind other buttons.
