Is it possible to make an animated fountain like the one found at the Detriot Airport?  I have a client that wants to see something similar for a university project.

See this video for the example?

Hi BubbaLove, which version of Lumion are you using?

I'm just downloading the demo now, thinking of purchasing if Lumion can do something like this.  I've been wanting to purchase for a while just needed a good reason.  This client is a good reason.

Hello again, it's unfortunately not possible to animate the fountains, so the closest you're going to get is a constant flow of water as on this screenshot (note that there are two types on the screenshot - only the one on the right can be edited):

Hi BubbaLove

Alternatively, you could do the main scene rendering with Lumion, and then post-process the water fountains.

That of course assumes a suitable resource can be found to provide camera matching of the resource to the animated scene.  That resource might be available perhaps either by using some other 3D animation software to make the fountains, or a video resource that can be used for post-process.
