This City is a combination of 14 yrs worth of contracted projects designed and detailed through We Think 3D LLC, and miscellaneous buildings from Google 3D Warehouse. Many of the building are actually completed, some are under construction, and some made it through CD phase and Bid, but got shelved due to the political arena and budget issues in 2008. All projects are in the State of Louisiana. The City of Lake Charles, Louisiana and Sulphur, Louisiana.
Many of the key buildings were already modeled. The City was only worked on during nights and weekends since i had a full-time day job, and took almost 9 month to complete.

The city started in Lumion 5.5 and ended with Lumion 6.3, just 4 day after 6.5 was released.
City began in sketchup pro as one big city that sized at 1.6GB. My laptop could not handle the file in Lumion very good, so I broke it up into about 12 different quadrants and managed them with the Layers.
The animations were created in 3 separate moves and put together with TrakAxPC.

1st part (the city rise from water)=20 hours
2nd part (walk through city)=96 hours
3rd part (drone city flythru)=502 hours

Frame rates range from 180sec - 218sec per frame

Waaawwww... Incredible work and very nice movie well rendered! 
That's incredible that you've rendered ic on a Laptop... even if it's an Alien.
How did you make so smooth camera moves for the drone view? Any tips or advice for us Lumion users?

Congrats!

I've never had a problem with smoothness as long as it was exported at 30fps. The "City Imagined" was exported at 1080, five stars, and 30fps. The one thing that really helped the drone fly-through was the "handheld camera" effect and the use of "Tilt." Other than that, Lumion did the rest.

That was flipping huge!

Great job - that is one large model with so much detail - all the stripping on the road, the animated cars and people... the beach, fire department... the list goes on and on!!

Congratulations!!!

Very cool idea for a portfolio! The planning for the "imagined city" alone is staggering to think about. All the time and effort involved really shows in the end product.
