[Answered] (Lumion files) viewing on another device

   Hello sorry for the long post, was wondering if any one could answer my question about exporting Lumion files and viewing them on another device. I do not own Lumion but own Revit 2013 and was thinking of purchasing the product. I would like to know how Lumion exports its files to other computers and how they are opened and viewed. Also is there a equivalent to a .PDF file for images and do I need a type of viewer to see these Lumion files on a device without Lumion?

Hi CARDARELLIARCHITECTS

Welcome to the Lumion forum.  :)

There are four forms of making content available to other computers:
1. Normal render of an image in standard formats such as JPG, BMP and PNG that anyone can view.  Lumion does not directly create PDF based documents, but it's possible to take images created in Lumion and insert to a document file such as Word and then get Word to create a PDF.

2. Normal render of video animations in the standard format of MP4, again anyone on a PC or device can view.  Those can be sent to clients or published to social media such as Youtube or Vimeo.

3. MyLumion 360 panorama images (new in V5.7 and in beta) that lets other people view a 360 look around of viewpoints in the scene.  These are published to the MyLumion web site.  Refer: MyLumion.

4. Users with Lumion Pro can Export to a single scene file that can be viewed by others in two modes - Walkthrough and Movie Playback.  The other user installs and runs a viewer type application known as Lumion Viewer.  This requires that their PC has suitable PC specifications to run the viewer. 

There is also one other way Lumion users can share designs and scene created.  With either Lumion or Lumion Pro a user can run Lumion in Play (Theatre) Mode from their own PC or laptop to do walkthroughs, and play back the movies in realtime with clients. 

These two options give the ability to have direct interactive sessions and presentations with clients.

We have also had some users set up the Viewer in a kiosk arrangement for public presentation.


You are welcome to request and use the Lumion Demo version (click on Try menu at top of forum page).  There is also a 7 day Trial (Pro version) available on request from your local reseller.

Hope this helps to answer your question.
