Every time I adjust the focal length in 3.0.2, and go back to the build area and come back to render, i have to re-adjust the focal length. is there a way to set and forget??

thanks

Hi Chester Niziol, if you want a custom focal length in Build mode you need to set the Focal Length slider in a clip in Movie mode to the desired value and then click on the Build with effects button in the top left corner.

It is also supposed to work if you adjust the Focal Length in Photo mode and click on the Build with effects button in the top left corner, but there's currently a bug which prevents the Focal Length from being transferred correctly.

However, I expect this to be fixed in a future update.

Hi arch_bd, I'm not totally sure what you mean by 'improvement in camera perspective'?

I refer to this:
By default, Lumion uses a three-point perspective camera view and it is not (yet) possible to render two-point perspective images.

Ah, in that case the answer is no.
