Hi, lumion again, and I have a question about lights.
You can create an internal lighting, such as a room with a light bulb?
Lumion is surely the revolution in real-time rendering.
Now I need to know if it is possible to have the same results with lights
  in nocturans imagens
Thank you very much, and congratulations on the program
Hugo

Thank you Hugo.

Internal lights are in version 1.0 only supported trough baking your lightmaps.

We are working hard on the real time version of lights.

Hello, I use for my projects in 3D Cinema 4D, estubo looking for something about maps and found no lights.
You can explain in more detail it's a map light, thus, would be easier I know what I have to do in cinema 4d.
Thank you for your attention!

"Map lights": Do you mean how to create lightmap textures in Cinema4D for use in Lumion?

Animated cars along curves: You can currently only animate cars (and other objects) along straight lines. Use the "Animate objects" effect in the Movie section to do this.

Hi Morten, if I refer to as creating maps in Cinema 4d lights for use in 3D Lumion.
I do not get referred to maps of lights, I find in cinema 4d how to do that, you know?
Excuse my English, I use google
thanks

I've never worked with Cinema4D, but a quick Google search reveals that the Render -> "Bake object" function seems to do the job:


Another tutorial:

Once you've imported your DAE/FBX object in Lumion, you'll need to apply a Lightmap material to it and load the lightmap texture manually.

The Lightmap material in Lumion requires 2 textures: A diffuse texture in slot 1 and the lightmap texture in slot 2.

EXCELLENT!, Many thanks, perfect tutorial.
No explanation was because I was searching the wrong name.
You solved a big problem to me, now I'll try.
Thank you for your attention and quick to respond, I'm impressed! :D
