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.
