New renderings for housing projects with Lumion 8.3. I used real photographs to blend and montage the Lumion renderings. The model was made in ArchiCAD and 3Ds Max. Postproduction was added in Photoshop.
Rendering time in Lumion: 1:30-2 minutes/image
Photoshop postproduction: 1.5-2 hours/image
GPU: GTX 980 Ti

First image is great. I would just work a little bit on the glass and reflections. If you do it right it will be very convincing. What you need to do is to render mat ID of the glass and in PS mirror the street photo and apply it to the glass selection. Some play with blending and it will give an extra breath to the scene. Cheers.

Or if the windows have a Reflection Plane applied, then you'll get the right reflections within Lumion  ;).

Not this time as he is using photo as environment. Lumion cannot reflect photos as far as I know.

If he's added the photos as post-production in Photoshop, then yes.

However, in Lumon any photo/image added to a Standard Material will be included in the reflection when using a Reflection Plane.  So it makes it possible to set up a Lumion Scene of the building design and with surrounding surfaces with real photos and incorporate reflections of such.  In render example, Reflection Plane Glass (std) surface is on the left, Standard Material with image is on the right.

That should work indeed. In other software you can map jpg reflection is it possible in glass material to add it directly?

I suppose you could  :), using the standard Glass Material, not the PureGlass.  Standard Glass will use a texture if assigned to the material in the 3d modelling application.  You need to reduce Transparency and increase Texture Influence to see the texture.
