There have been and are ongoing requests for more People resources in the Library.
It's a matter of resources to make the 3D characters and have them work well within the Lumion real-time environment. Good modelling and texturing and then creating the animations is an intensive and time consuming task, which limits current availability.
Higher quality characters have been added in version 3. The dev team are very aware of the limitations and wishes to extend what is available.
For current projects the options are:
1. determine the need for 3D characters or the options in using 2D or silhouettes. Some arch viz top of the range videos work well without 3d characters, it's a style thing.
2. where 3d characters are not available and the existing library is not applicable, and as mentioned by others here, there is the ability to import characters - from stock or your own built. They can only be static, no animations.
Ii is unlikely that the Library will ever be possible to cover all the races, nations, looks, types of animation, clothing etc etc. It forms a base from which to begin with, as does the buildings in the Library, and other models.
In the commercial/licensed area of the forum we have a number of topics in the Feedback and Wishlist Board, one of which is The Definitive Wish List for the Model Library
for members to add requests for new models including characters/people.
The Library is a living ongoing work-in-progress.
Appreciate everyone's feedback and ideas, keep it coming
So is there a new version soon with a larger library of people?
I am not able to provide a definitive answer for that at present. Generally what is in a new version is released when and as the new version progresses and there is certainty about what's going to meet the timeframes.
I can say that each of the major versions so far have always had an increase the content of the Library, for example v3 as mentioned.
Thanks for raising the topic.
ps: please also see my PM to you.
