Fantastic!! Peter,  I really must use this great feature. 

BTW, how long did this take to make if you don't mind me asking?

Regards,

Thanks Blendman for feedback.

Not too long, the building framework is of course part of the modelling process, so time on was really matter of choosing how to animate with the given Lumion tools and re-working a few options.

Not quite sure whether achieved that animated look of progressive building construction as yet so its WIP.

There were a few glitches along the way due to using LU2.1 at time and only 5 layers that would now be easier with LU2.2, where layers are still the only way to hide and show things instead of visibility being part of the object properties.

I would prefer a clipping plane that clipped a region rather than whole scene, that way you could do a room by room anim.  Also the big problem with it is still clipping all object surrounds like trees, so the anim tends to look stark and not a natural scene as it looks funny clipping animals, people and trees.

The parts were brought in separately.  For animation only used the clipping plane and basic anim to move up or down.

Hi Peterm,

I can see that with careful preparation of the various stages of design, you could blow away your client but showing him the design process, esp. the various stafges of construction.

Keep up the great work, and esp.  share with your thoroughly interesting journey to do all!

Regards,

blendman

Hi Peterm,
    just did a search on how to achieve this effect in Lumion.

Could you tell me a bit about how it was produced?

Did you have to import the content of each layer as a separate object in Lumion?

How easy was it to get everything lined up?

We've been asked to produce something very similar and it'd be good to know what our options are...

Great video! well done

Ive now seen a few posts mentioning or including the use of techniques using Lumion that I cannot find in the tutorials.

Is there a tutorial on creating this kind of presentation using clipping planes, layers etc??

Thanks for feedback.

The floor and framing was imported as a separate object to its own layer, and also the whole building.

Used Basic Animation Effect to move the clipping planes for each clip making up the movie. The roof just used the Basic Anim Effect.  There is a slight glitch in it near the end, between showing the roof at final end position and the full models roof position.  That can be improved on.

Decide on the sequence needed, then just use the clipping planes, Basic Animation and separate clips plus Hide/Show layers.

MTF (maybe)  ;)
