Building Sequence Animation

Hello i am still saving up for lumion pro but in the mean time i wanted to know if lumion is capable of doing animations like these.



As an architectural visualization program, i think this feature is essential.. the video above was accomplished by jumping through hoops in revit. The guy had to slice up each individual piece and import it seperately then used the move tool to animate each piece.. honestly, Lumion is too powerful a software to not have a better and quicker way to accomplish such an animation. The sky drop tool is awesome and lumion hopefully will come up with a really cool and automatic way to make building sequence animations. Please lumion... look into this in the future!!!!!!

Hi michaelsis

Thanks for the feedback.

Some things are a bit more like a jigsaw puzzle.  You have to make the pieces first, then put them together.  That has to be a user based task to define the pieces.  Putting them together and doing Move animations in Lumion is not that hard.  How automated and dedicated to that sort of specific type of animation something could be developed in Lumion, I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Yes.

--------
Animation of objects in Lumion works on the basis of being able to select and animate an 'object'.  To create the objects you first need to define what part of the overall mesh will be in the 3D modelling tool, and then import them in to Lumion.  As there's no sort of batch import, you need to do it one by one and then Align in Lumion.
