I'm posting this video to show out what we can accomplish with sketch and lumion hand in hand.
I know that what i've done is just a liiiiittle work and lumion has a lot more to give.
Here we go :
i'll point out some things i didn't like :1-
so when we place a bunch of bushes and that we rotate them correctly the fact that we copy them (with alt) this makes the first bushes that the we copied to revert back ti its initial rotation. that is noit a big issue whn we're placing these in a straight line buit it is when it is circular.2-
the reflections are just horrible (even thought not that visible here), in another video that i'll post later the rflections a just not acceptable (not talking about the client just not acceptable for me) and this probleme must be the first thing to get corrected or another solution maybe slower has to be given with the possibility to choose wich method of reflections must be used for the sequence to be redered out.3-
placing trees and plants is relatively easy but what would be gretaly appreciated is the possibility to place trees and plants by editing the project;
Let's say for example that youy put on your model in sketch up little circles that you paint in a color these circles represents where trees are gonna be placed, by editing the imported model in lumion choosing this circles (with color given to them) and have a section of materials where there are the trees and plants. that would be a crazy fast way to set up a scene reday to be rendered in lumion even with more accurate placement thaks to sketchup.
Why not people and cars also placed randomly fot these too, it will save a lot of time.4-
if we can have this it can be a great help for a presentation :
implement a Motiva colimo (i think its the right name but not sure) like section.
all the info herehttp://www.motivacg.com/colimo_en.php
exportable in exe.
I have more suggestions i would like to get to you in a more proper way thus why i'm not gonna write them here, i'll think of a way to present them and be back.
For now just thanks and keep up the good work.
