Lumion Concept "Sketches"

Thought I'd post some "sketches" I created using Lumion 2.5 and some of the rendered shots for comparison.  For reference the site aerial image is 6.5 km x 6.5 km.  We used this model for an interview so the buildings are just mass blocks to show a general idea of size and shape with the main focus being on traffic circulation and pedestrian interaction.  I had a ton of fun putting it together.

Comments welcome!  :)

All modeling done in Sketchup 8
Google Earth Pro for aerial images
Lumion 2.5
NO Photoshop except to draw the black "pencil" line around the outside edge of the lumion image
Sketch effect achieve in Lumion by selecting and setting the sliders in the sketch effect for videos and then exported out as a still image.

Roughly 4 hours in Lumion to add trees, cars and people. Also to setup the animation sequences and still shots. Animation sequences rendered at three stars at 720 resolution in about 30 to 45 mins. for the longest 30 sec clip. Super fast!  Rendered using a not so good Radeon card HD6790 2gb.

Nice.

Example of where the sketches are more suitable than a standard render especially for concept level design.

I'll post the exact settings in the morning...but all I used was the sketch effect under the video effects. I just adjusted the sliders until it looked good. I absolutely love the effects I can get with this software. This is hands down the single best software that I've ever used!  Stunning real renders and with the application of a single effect....the best computer generated "sketches" I've ever seen. Way better than I get with even Photoshop filters...to get something sketchy in Photoshop you have to apply a bunch of successive filters and even then it doesn't look half as good as this.

Great work dcrosssvpa. Imagine the money we could have made if we had this amazing technology
20 years ago! It use to take days to prepare drawings like this!
