This is the 2nd and final version of a sports club walk through I posted months ago, with much improved graphics,details and better direction overall.
the intro and credits are not made in Lumion and will be completely replaced in a few days, so just focus on the walk through itself.
the model was done in autocad/3dsmax and textures were mostly made from scratch in Photoshop CS5.
render times were different regarding what part of the scene is being rendered but the whole model with all the trees and details on reached 3 Million polygon,
Rendered between 8 to 17 Seconds Per Frame on a Core i7 CPU with a Radeon 6950 1GB.
The 1 GB Rams of the GPU was crippling the Render Frames badly, because I used alot of very high res textures (>4096) when I enabled low memory mode they dropped to 5 frames a sec.
Also 16x AA adds alot ! with 2 stars render the time dropped to 3 -4 frames a sec !! from 12 and so .
Anyways am very glad it turned out to be like that, I'd thought am done for really and thought that lumion will never be able to help me in such a large project but it did, its still a bit rough here and there but for the FPS i was working with (10 or so after adding everything) and for a relatively long movie (8 minutes) I guess its not bad at all and still a very viable alternative to regular CPU renders
I've talked too much
