Hey everyone-- first time poster here but am excited to share some recent achievements in Lumion.

This is a conceptual cabin project done as a way to explore workflows between Lumion and Rhino 5. There isn't a specific site, but it's probably somewhere in British Columbia. The project was primarily an exercise in modeling entire 3D environments and doing minimal work in Photoshop (which was mostly just adding in photos of my cat…)

We used Lumion 8 Pro and did all of the cabin modeling in Rhino 5. A lot of the texture mapping was done within Rhino and we controlled the material properties in Lumion. The project lasted just under a month working on it at night and when we could find time on the weekends.

Each image took anywhere from 10-20 minutes due to the significant level of detail in the cabin/imported assets. The project was rendered on a GTX 1070.

Would love to hear any feedback/comments you all may have.

Thanks!

Nice work BeebOH!

really like the entry shot... is that tree to the left a Lumion tree, hero asset, or photoshop?

Thank you! The tree on the left is what I guess you could call a 'hero asset'. It's an imported tree with a really high level of detail (IIRC that model was 100MB+ alone)

This has to be my favorite lumion project of all time! Wow!!! I'm really impressed with the level of care, I'm also a rhinoceros user and have many questions about how the environment was made, the stones especially...
Could you place some rhino and some lumion screenshots to compare what was done in lumion and what was brought in from rhino.

I believe with your permission that this work should be selected by the staff of lumion for an example of the workflow between lumion and rhino.... maybe one day they will give us the livesync... ::) it would be good to publish a making of...

I really like the far away image - well done and thanks for sharing!

Is the sky in that image Lumion or PS?

   Thank you for the kind words. I'll consider doing a write-up if there's a demand for it-- but the short answer to your first question is the actual cabin was done in Rhino while the topography/trees/rocks/interior objects are a combination of Lumion and imported assets. The file was pretty heavy towards the end of the project (5GB) but Lumion did a good job handling very large quantities of repeated objects.

   The sky is a combination of the "Sky and Clouds", "Volume Clouds", "Sun Study" and "Sun" effects. Here's how each effects influenced the look of the image:
   
   
  • Sky and Clouds: Filled in the 'background clouds'. I had the low clouds at about 25% and the high clouds at around 100%.
  • Volume Clouds: These are the clouds actually rolling over the Lumion topography. I thought this would add a good touch to the image and the potential 'realism' by tying together the sky and resisting the tempation to 'insert' a different sky (which creates all sorts of other issues)
  • Sun Study: Let me set the time of day/year in a location I desired
  • Sun: This was critical to adjusting the brightness of the sun to get the right amount of light 'glinting' off of the trees for that post-storm/dawn look

Very impressive shots!
I like the far away shot too! we don't see too often this kind of images from Lumion, great work!
