Hi everyone,
I recently using Lumion for rendering the projects. But I’ve some trouble in the process working with:
With the small project: scale  4x17m
1.    I’ve many difficult when tried to zoom out all of the room, the camera was always out of the door (e.g for the WC room was designed  1,2 x 1,7m), so I couldn’t render this room. I’ve double scale for the modeling  but it seem doesn’t work as well.
2.   The objects in modeling  it seem look like stretched from the rectager to the square shape or much longer . Please guide me how can I fix it?

With the project: larger scale 4000m
1.   Lumion file: 220MB, exporting  movie Full HD, quality: max, take about 37 hours for 4 minutes movie, size of movie finally is 900MB. The big size of movie make I have some inconvenient to upload or download. So how can I modify option to resize the size and reduce the time of rendering.  
My version is Lumion Ultimate 2.1/ build 4.
Many appreciated for all your replies.
Kind regards,

Hi nonaka847, you'll also see some distortion on real-world photographs when you use a wide-angle lens (which corresponds to a low Zoom value in Lumion):

Since Lumion emulates a real-world camera, your role is no different from a photographer who is trying to photograph small spaces/rooms. Have you used Google for tips on how to do that?

And lastly, please upgrade to a newer version of Lumion - later versions allow you to make the camera horizontal (CTRL + H) which usually reduces the visual impact of lens distortion at low zoom values.

Regarding the file size, have you considered rendering an image sequence instead of an MP4 file? PNG format is usually the smallest uncompressed format and JPG format is obviously the smallest compressed format. When you're done, this image sequence can easily be imported in 3rd party video editing software which will let you render the final video in any format you like.

Regarding your question about render times, please read this thread:
