Kiosk in Literally 10 minutes

So,  i have had so little time to be able to use Lumion 2.0 it has been a bit depressing.  Gone are the days that i was churning out work on Lumion 1.0 when there was like 10 people on here.  I am so glad to see that things are working out for the software, and love what i have been seeing.  Below is litterally 10 minutes of work...i know there are textures issues with the hanging product, and there is no background...but it was 10 minutes of work.  Crazy

Hey brother, that looks great. Nicely done.

It's amazing how quickly you can get a very nice image with Lumion for design development AND sending out to a client. Did you have any issues placing the lights at all? It is a little tedious in its current state trying to figure out where they are and moving them, etc.

Also, since this was a small vignette, did you use the reflection ball to get the reflections to work out in that area the way you wanted to?

Thanks for the comment...

Since this was a small project, i really had a fairly easy time placing the lights.  I like that they come in straight down initially, and then i can target their location after.  They snap to the geometry pretty easily, which makes sure you are not snapping the light under a surface that will cause the light to be unusable.  I will say that i would like to see a light that is a full 180 on the cone.

In reality there are no walls behind the view, but i did use the reflection ball just to help the reflection focus.  I did not try to tweak anything on it...it was a test to see if i could crank a design development out quickly for a client.  I did the exact same model in Podium for Sketchup, again as a test, and it took MUCH longer.  I would say i spent about an hour and a half placing lights, rendering, tweaking, rendering, tweaking, rendering...repeat.  Lumion wins hands down.  If i spent an hour on the Lumion version, i am sure it would be really singing a song.  Just wanted Raw output.  There is no post production other then one curve adjustment in Photoshop.

Here is a super quick video of the kiosk as well.  Way to much reflection on the glass...

Why is Boar's Head meat the best?

Why can't we incorporate the flavor of Boar's Head meat within Lumion?
Can we get that as a plug-in?
