Thank you - it has been an interesting site to work on - having first started on phase one of this development 8 years ago. But how I could have produced something like this without Lumion, on the current phase - I do not know ! This is a short selection of clips taken from around six minutes of animation in total. To produce this with previous, conventional render methods would have taken months - putting it beyond the marketing budget of smaller developments such as this. With Lumion , there was room enough in the budget to also bring in a drone for establishing shots (showing the large stately home which is on site and too big to model). The way the 'ethereal' feel of Lumion ties in with these drone shots is very pleasing (will post if client uploads to YouTube at future date).
Peter, I have re-rendered some sections (now I have time), with higher settings. I think some of the slight flickering was simply due to the lower sub-sampling of the 3 star render. Time was against me - so had to go with the lower settings
Not much shadow range error in the clips here - but yes - you can see in the end sequence around the hedge for example. I think it's simply lack of experience on my part -and it is the one area I can not fully understand from the video tutorial. I'm sure I will get it with more practice (this is only my third animation). But if not - expect a scene upload ;0) Thanks.
