I needed to test a few ideas on moving ships and found this nice model on google warehouse. Its imaginary and but very detailed both inside and out. I made this just for fun and test new features in lumion 4.0.1
I took the model into 3dsmax first to clean it up a bit and exportet out via FBX. In Lumion I added materials, some people and a few of the models from the library. I then added smoke in the chimney, adjusted the wind speed to max so it seems like the ship move forward. I wish it was possible to adjust the wind speed even more thou. Then I used rotated fountains as foam/spray on the front part of the hull. I tried different thing to make foam at the back of the boat too,the waterfall material for instance, but it doesn't work horisontal.
Think it took about 4 hours of complete rendering in 1080p. I have a GeForce GTX 780 card.
