Five Suggested Improvements for Lumion Functionality

Lumion is awesome but there are a couple items that I would suggest be improved upon:
 1) Terrain Brush- is still not small enough to make detailed terrain depressions/elevations when landscaping against sub-terrain items such as a basement wall or swimming pool etc. Since we can't make a vertical face with terrain it becomes difficult to bring the terrain up against a vertical wall without having it intrude into the interior space. A smaller terrain brush would also be handy for detailed terrain painting, like around narrow paths etc.

2) Water- It would be nice if when objects are placed into water the water would not also be inside the object- IE: underwater vessels, structures even boats have water inside.

3) Wind- the trees seem to dance to the same beat frequency- this looks funny when all vegetation is in sync with its wind animation.

4) Flight paths of birds, a better way to control their motion, they often fly right through building walls.

5) Animation- It would be nice if we could add a rotational animation to our own custom objects like a windmill, fan blade, wind turbine, merry go round, ferris wheel, etc.

 Many thanks-

I just noticed this yesterday infact, its a bit strange. The boat needs to float just on top of the water to not have water in it...


Agree that the terrain editing/painting tools are too large. It would be nice to have a terrain modelling brush that produced flat surfaces.

Also, why cant trees and vegetation be angled to follow the terrain??

And I would suggest to you that you buy a legal version.
