A few questions :)

Hi everyone!

1. I'm wondering how to make section planes out of your model in Lumion 3.0?

2. How to make lights not "shine through" walls, I mean to get the light stay inside a box etc.

Thanks,
Niclas

Hi Niclas, if you use Lumion 3.1+, there's a Clip Plane object in Lights & Special Objects -> Utilities. You can also animate this object via the Move/Advanced Move effects in the Movie section.

2. How to make lights not "shine through" walls, I mean to get the light stay inside a box etc.

You need to use spotlights, not 360 degree fill lights. The shadows will be displayed if you select the spotlights in Build mode. Alternatively, you can turn on shadows in Movie/Photo mode by applying the Global Illumination effect and turning on Preview Spotlight GI and shadows.

Thanks for you reply! :)

There is no such a function in Lumion 3.0.1? Or do I  have to update my version to get section planes?

You have to update to Lumion 3.1+ to get this function.
