For all of you FormZ users out there, the best way to import FormZ models is to create a dxf file (no size transformation needed) and import it into Sketchup. There check every layer (grouped by color!) and again go over every object within a color layer to see if all the faces are in the same color. Export in collada format into Lumion and apply Lumion materials.
Btw, I could not find any roof tile materials, darker asphalts, lighter color metals (glas without transparency). There should be also a water color somewhere inbetween the offered pond and mountain creek.
Once you import the damn model (it took a BIG while to figure out the right way) it was pure pleasure from then on to play God and create gardens, landscapes and atmospheres.
I'm hooked up again, Lumion! Keep up the great work!
I know there are a couple of unstable camera movements and unwanted geometry but I got inpatient and wanted to see the result asap
