Thanks for the prompt reply. 20x20 hectares is very small for what I need.
The land for my project shaped like Australia and the total size is 357 hectares. I can put in on a grid (square shaped) of water plane if need be.
Hi Andy, I don't quite understand why 20x20 hectares is "very small for what you need
" since 400 > 357 hectares?
1 Hectare = 100m x 100m
400 Hectares = 4 square kilometers = 2000m x 2000m
So if your model is more or less square it will fit within the 2000m x 2000m which incidentally make up half the total area that you can add entourage to in Lumion (4 x 4km).
Have you tried importing the model in Lumion Free
As you can imagine that size is too large for even some of the most powerful PCs to handle so hence, I've had to X-reference the whole site to reduce the polygon count and render time.
Is there something similar in Lumion?
No, there's no equivalent of X-references in Lumion. If the model is particularly high-poly, it's probably best to import it in several chunks anyway and align them using the Align
command (or the Position type-in
Will there be an option to import cameras in the foreseeable future?
Generally speaking, the developers don't announce upcoming features in advance until said features are fully implemented. This is to avoid disappointing customers in case a feature fails to materialise due to technical problems.
