This is my first test of Lu ion 2 using an old project done in Lumion 1.  This is a down and dirty test trying lights and dusk sky...so far pretty intuitive, excited to try more.



Edit: origional Lumion 1 below

Little bit of. Learning curve.  A couple of the materials needed to be edited because as mentioned, there is a slightly differnt system in place. The light placement is a little hit and miss, but you can get them "close enough" to work.  I actually put a light in every location there would be a light, just to test performance on my machine.  Really responded well...will get better over time I would expect.

Diaz I agree, it was really more of test of light placement and less about all of the materials.  Although, I think in general the materials look better in Lumion 2 than 1 from my limited use (see a quick exterior I placed here in the gallery).  No lighting just a render out with a few material tweaks.

You should still be able to create the glow of the ceiling lights with Lumion 2.

BTW, we talked about this before but i keep forgetting to do it... i would still like to have an actual image of a lighted fixture mapped and made emissive so it appears to have some depth and substance like a real fixture instead of a large white rectangle.

anyone have any good images to use?

The contrast between the inside and now dark exterior is a definite winner, but not a huge  difference in the inside lighting. 

Many thanks for sharing this.  I look forward to downloading v.2 today! to try all.

Thanks Blendman, i am just fumbling around finding my way.  This reminds me of my first couple of Lumion 1 projects where i did not know how to utilize SSOA or even proper material assignments.  I would hope as we all work through the new system, we share our incite.  I remember the Lumion staff was extremely helpful in bringing my projects to the next level.

I have a couple of projects that i am not allowed to post on the forum (lawyers and their non-disclosure agreements) that looked fantastic in Lumion 1, i am excited to spend some time in Lumion 2 to take it up a notch.

Thanks for the comments.
