You are free to create what you want. 1 nov is the deadline. We will use the video for promotion on our website. So if your movie shows something really amazing created with Lumion and it is something people will watch that will score high points for us.

Hi LUMION staff

Thanks for such a magnific program.

About this mp4 movie competition, is there any problem if we use animated objects from other 3D programs.

I am an student, so I only have got the demo version, could I participate with a video with the watermark on it? How long should it last?

again thanks for this great tool.

Hello,

Are we allowed to post-process the video? Like being edited in After Effects?

Or should the video be originally came from Lumion without any post-processing?

Thats' not a problem, you're welcome to import animated objects (the best format is FBX). Just bear in mind that animation is currently only an experimental feature in Lumion - it will later become part of a more advanced Animation plug-in - so at the moment, imported animations just loop for ever.

Could I participate with a video with the watermark on it? How long should it last?

The watermark is not a problem. The duration is up to you :)

Yup, that's fine.

If you mean participate with more than one video, yes, that's no problem.

If you mean participate with other types of media, no, we only accept entries in .MP4 format.

Hi
You say " The movie should be in 1280x720p and saved in MP4 format"
I have some movies already uploaded to YouTube, unfortunately they are 1080p format, is this a problem?
They could be streamed at 720p just by choosing that option in YouTube.
Unfortunately I cant render them again as some of the source files went with my last computer, I cant really take the YouTube movie files and render them again as 720p as I think this would increase greatly the compression artefacts.

1080 is fine too but you'll need to be able to provide an mp4 file
