Island of Bermuda's New Waterfront Proposal

This is a graphical representation of an architectural firms vision for the Hamilton Waterfront in Bermuda. It was done by Connor Burns at Bermuda Renderings using Revit and Lumion Pro 3.2 and while the Revit was done over months, the Lumion portion was all crammed into that last little while (started with Lumion Free then just went straight to Lumion Pro once I knew I wanted it), which makes this my first real Lumion project.

The frames render anywhere between 16 seconds and 65 seconds depending on reflective surfaces on a GTX680, and the 8:35 video took pretty much a lifetime to render out with my hardware crashing constantly, but it got done.

Here it is:

Its a shame planar reflections don't reflect the ocean   :-\ I would suggest going back and pulling up the base of the pier that you see in the reflection of the ocean. You did a good job of hiding it the best you could, but seeing the very tall sides of the pier are the last thing to hiding that unfortunate reflection. After that, I doubt anyone would ever notice.

You also did a great job with the entourage! We don't have a huge library yet, and you made good use of the characters for the most part without it looking like the same people over and over and over.

My biggest recommendation would be to remove some of the scenes. It just seems like you are repeating stuff. I think there are at least 3 different scenes just looking into the amphitheater. Why not trim that down to one really powerful one?

I think you should focus more on the key areas that you label within the video. The ancillary spaces (like parking lots) can be glanced over, shown in just an overall aerial rather than closeup detailed scenes.

Keep up the good work! Consider modeling your company logo and importing it into Lumion to create animated intro/outro clips. Not only is it a more immersive way to display your company, but allows you to toy with some of the settings your hardware couldn't afford for this project, like volume clouds, global illumination, etc...

Hi CBurns

Great to see the project come to fruition, and also that you were able to finally get all the frames rendered after your earlier difficulties.

I gather then that due to timeframes it was not possible to test/experiment with use of the Reflection Control (or the Windows as Glass only with default control) in place of Reflection Planes on that building.

Hi ayad1a1

Add the Sun Effect to a clip, then add keyframes along the clips timeline for changes to the Sun Heading and Sun Height so that at each keyframe the sun is in a new position.

To add keyframes please see LUMION 3: Tips, Tricks and Shortcuts.

A search of the forum provides a number of topics with some (hopefully) useful info, here's a couple of them:
[dot] Animation Showing the Sunrise
[dot] Need Tutorials!, see Mortens reply.

Shadows will automatically adjust to the position of the sun for any frame of the animation.  Using the Shadow Effect mainly controls how the shadows are going to look and you don't have to adjust their positioning at all.

These things are much the same in v2.5 and v3 versions.

ps: have removed post in other topic (St Peter's) as same question as here

pps: please reply to emails and PM to you as user TLMOT2010.
