Now I want to ad more 3D terrain an new buildings to my Lumion project - but how do I do that? All my objects are exported from the same 3d coordinates from SU, but when I import into Lumion how do I control the placement / alignment of the object.
Excerpt from the Tips, Tricks & Shortcuts thread:http://lumion3d.com/forum/index.php?topic=2759."Align" command:
This command lets you centre selected objects so that their pivot points are at the same position (CTRL-select objects -> Context menu -> Transformation -> Align
). If you need to move or manipulate one of the overlapping objects, place the mouse cursor over the small overlapping object selection icons and use the mouse wheel (or the Arrow Up/Down keys) to toggle between the objects.
I would also recommend that you "lock" the position of the aligned/imported objects, so that they can't be moved, regardless of what you do to the terrain. Here's how:Select models -> Context menu -> Transformation -> Lock position
If I first move the object with the vertical move tool and then try to move the object with the horizontal move tool it jump down again making it impossible to line up? Or am I doing something wrong?

Press shift while dragging selected objects to move them horizontally with snapping turned off.TIP:
To prevent the roof from flickering at 1:20, add the Camera Clip Plane
effect to that clip, and increase the Near Plane
slider value until the flickering disappears.
