Here's a project for a local developer and estate agent (Leicesterhire, UK), stills and movie produced for off plan marketing purposes. All buildings modelled from scratch and placed into topographically correct site plan.

Lumion Pro 9.0.2
Software: Modo, Photoshop, Premier Pro.
Lumion Scene Prep: 16 hours
Render – Stills (3840x2160): 6 mins (average)
Render – Movie (1920x1080): 1.5 min per frame

Excellent work ! Great amount of detailing, hats off.

Could you share the file size and number of polygons in the model file you were dealing with. Also, did you import the topographic model from google earth or a third party plugin.. do kindly share details. Many thanks !

Hi, thanks very much.

The model was split into component parts, the topographical mesh was in one file, with each property brought in individually. The total poly count including cars (BMW and Aston) is 1.6 million. Lumion file size is 21.5GB.

The topographical data was modelled in Modo by hand using detailed survey information, Google Earth wouldn't have been accurate enough. We had thought about scanning the site with the drone but decided that as we had all the data we needed it would be an unneccessary step. We also wanted physical geometry so we could use the 3D real grass feature in Lumion as opposed to the landscape grass.

Hope that helps.
