Nice run Stucki.  Looks good.    :D

The full reflections in the windows are a little much (not your fault) - maybe tone down the reflection sharpness/brightness/etc and add a little bit of tone/color/density to the windows - anything to cut down on the full mirror effect that is happening. 

If you are not going inside the building - a skillful texture for the "glass" could also help.
Transparency in materials (not an option yet) would be most useful for such scenes.

Where is the cool depth of field with your plug-in  :(   

You can take my comments with a grain of salt - just commenting and mean no hard feelings.

More More More    :D    :-D     :)

Hi CRhoades,

thanks for the comments. they are very welcome.
the glass reflections are really not so good. Hope Lumion will develop glass further in the next update ....

Depth of field is in use. Only in the foreground ...

Sofar we see the same things popping up in videos:
  • Coplanar polygons: they show up as flickering in the final movie (called z-fighting).
  • Problems with reflection

The first issue is solved by making sure the model is modeled properly and if rhere are still some flicker issues you can offset one of the materials to remove flickering.

The second issue can often be solved by adding the reflection control effect on you movie and placing the position of the reflection cube map at the right position. In this case some tweaking of the material would help.

In the mean while we will try finding automated solutions for problems like this.

reworked the scene a little bit and expanded it ...
having real fun working with lumion !

but the fadein fadeout between the 4 parts isnt working like it should ? there is some weird flickering ...

picture overlay would be perfect if png-format would be supported so you can have firm logos on the video
