Indeed, definite coolness.

Black as vinyl to suit the times rather than fabric? or all plastic.

I agree, but i have a lot of difficulties in lumion with the textures! It's difficult (for me) to have a plastic look like texture! It could be great to have some basic material presets like in vray (plastic, alu, metal mat/glossy, plexiglas, bronze, fabric uniform color, leather...)

I agree we should have section in forum about materials presets with pictures :-9

(REQUEST INSIDE   ;) )

My problem is that when I apply color texture in sketchup, when I export in .dae, the color texture is not exported like other jpeg textures...

So when I apply black color on my seat in sketchup, when I export in lumion, my seat is black ok... But not dark enough and not reflective! So when I want to reapply a black color from lumion, I can only choose "color". But "color" can only change the color I want and the darkness.

If my dark color have to be reflective and glossy, I have to choose the "standard" to have all these settings available. But my texture become white until I apply a new jpeg texture!

Why don't we have the option to choose the color in the "standard" settings or the reflectivity and so on in "color"??? It so frustrating to come back to photoshop to create a black square picture and reimport it as texture in lumion...

The things appened to me quite with each customer is when he looks on my screen and say something like that: I would like a more red brick on these walls! Can you do that (in live)?

Hmmmm no sorry! I have to return in sketchup and so on...

Maybe you can mix the "standard" and "color" settings? It could be great  

Regards,
Djé

EDIT: i moved the request in the right setcion...
