Hello everyone.
Trying to figure out if you can apply a custom image material continuously across multiple planes like on a uv curved surface.
I see that it only allows for 3D box mapping?

Hi brando, which version of Lumion are you using? (You can see the product name and version number on the Settings screen)

Just the dem0 5.3 for now but will be 6.0 when I decide it's worth buying for me.
My 6.0 demo ran out.

Thanks for the clarification.

There are two texture placement options in Lumion 5.3 (and later versions):
Imported texture coordinates and automatic texture coordinates.

The automatic texture coordinates are based on box mapping but with blended borders to reduce distortion.

There's more information in this Knowledge Base article (Search for "Scale").

In your case, it sounds like you'd be better off by assigning the texture in your 3D modelling application before importing the model in Lumion.

Very cool. If you import with the UV already set it does work.
Thank you!
