i am currently fooling around with lumion and i like the output it creates.
so i thought i should import one of my last projects that i originally prepared as quest model. it is a huge area about 3km wide and 4 orthophotos with 4096x4096 pixels each.
i saved the model as collada file and imported it into lumion3d. indeed it worked and the model showed up. but i discovered that all textures were reduced in size, especially the orthophotos lost all their resolution.is there a way to import the model with original-sized textures?
i like the lighting although there is a bit too much blooming for my taste.
the navigation becomes a bit sluggish with such a large model, especially when far away navigation is slow and also framerate drops quite a bit.
is there a way how to maintain the shadow even at further distances? now it disappears quite quickly in the distance which looks odd with such large models.
i attached some screenshots from the original quest model and from the same model imported into lumion (though without lightmaps of course). how can i import the same model lightmapped, with 2 texture-sets attached? and is there a way how to turn off SSAO or tweak it a little bit?
here the original quest model:
and here the model imported into lumion:
