Commercial Building Central London

We have recently produced a few still images for a refurbishment of a commercial building in central London. As we had a bit of down down whilst waiting from client feedback we decided to take the models into Lumion and make a little animation.

A little more about the project can be found at our website (Guildhall House)

I wouldn't say it's finished (in terms of being completely happy with the final animation) as we didn't spend as much time on it as I would have liked to but it is finished in that we won't be assigning any more time to it for the foreseeable future.

Some Specs:
Modeled in 3DSMax 2014
Scene Setup: 4.5hours
Render Times: average 5secs/frame on a GTX Titan.

Any C&C's welcome.

Ta.

Nice Video VEM.  The colors are excellent for that realism touch.   ;)

Thanks Babe and RAD.

The screen grabs you have taken there are not done in Lumion, hence me not posting them  :) All the animation stuff was though.

No worries, it is of course what we are aiming for with Lumion but the glossy reflections I fear a little way off at the moment  :)

With all the talk about comparing Lumion with other products (a largely irrelevant argument IMHO as Lumion is  specific tool for a specific problem) I thought I would drop in some stills of the work done using Mental Ray for comparison. Note I said stills that took about 3 times as long to render than the entire Lumion sequence and probably 4 times as long to set-up!

Sorry for any confusion
