I just wanted to share a quick test with the new Maxtree vol. 12 that was released recently. I found it on Ronen's site here: https://www.ronenbekerman.com/released-maxtree-plant-models-vol-12/
This is just a reminder that you can import any sort of highpoly fbx files for close ups. Lumion is so excellent at providing such qualitative objects and plants that are perfect for mid - backgrounds and some close-ups, but it frees you up to use system resources on your highly detailed subject matter, whether that's an architectural model or custom furniture. Having good albedo/diffuse maps with a good normal map within Lumion's flexible shader... you can really get top notch results quickly!! Given these results, I'm really hoping I get the chance to play with megascans + Lumion. I think it will really be magic.
This exercise only involved importing the tree fbx file into lumion, creating a png for the leaves in photoshop. Setting materials, and tossing a bunch of rocks, grasses and leaves around..., create a couple cameras with decent compositions showcasing tree, export, very slight color grading & value changes in P.S. - that's it.
Whole exercise, from start to finish was 2 hours.
