In general we want to offer our customers a realtime walkthrough, through a custom made 3d model. Now i already know that Lumion doent support walkthroughs and collision etc. but is it possilbe ,as work around, to make a camerapath the customer cannot leave but look around?
This is currently not possible (but it has been requested by other customers).
If im right, we could make a custiom 3d model, send it to our customer and he could watch it with Lumion Free right? Now Lumion 3 isnt free yet so we have to give him our installation (without licence) and he can view the file. But is it possible to save it for Lumion 2.5? Or when do u expect the v3 becoming free?LUMION FREE 3
I have had a chat with Ferry (the main developer of Lumion) and he tells me that the current plan - which might still change of course - is to release Lumion Free 3
as a small program with only a few models and materials included.Lumion Free 3
will not be able to load scene files from Lumion 3
or Lumion Pro 3
. In addition, it will not be possible to load scenes saved in Lumion Free 3
in other versions of Lumion, so Lumion Free 3
will only be for evaluation/non-commercial purposes.Lumion Free 3
will also not be able to load the self-contained scene files (LS3) from Lumion Pro 3
.HOW TO ALLOW YOUR CLIENT TO INSPECT SCENES
If you want to allow clients to inspect your scenes in real-time 3D (instead of sending them a rendered video), you will need Lumion Pro 3
as this is the only version which lets you export LS3 files.
Clients will then be able to load the LS3 file in an upcoming dedicated new (free) LS3 viewer application. It will not be possible to edit the scene in this viewer application.
Alternatively, if you can only afford Lumion 3
(standard), your client would also need to buy Lumion 3
(standard) in order to load your scene and library files.DISCLAIMER: Bear in mind that Lumion Free 3 and the dedicated LS3 scene viewer application have not yet been released, so I can't guarantee that everything will work as described above.
Now my question is, if its possible to view stereoscopic images in realtime? Or does lumion have to render it befor you can see it.
The side-by-side stereoscopic renderings have to be rendered as images or as an MP4 video which would require a suitable 3D device to enable you to view it. You'll have to look up which devices/TVs/monitors support stereoscopic side-by-side 3D on Google.
Alternatively, you can use Nvidia 3D Vision
to view your scene, e.g. in Theatre
mode, with the Nvidia shutter glasses but bear in mind that this functionality is currently not working in Lumion 2.5 and Lumion 3.x. I hope the developers will be able to fix it in a future update.
This feature is the only reason for u to buy the pro version ... or do we have other benefits (regading our intentions).
Apart from LS3 export, Lumion Pro allows you to include 3D sounds in your scenes and you can also add 2D sounds to your videos. In addition, the built-in Model Library
is much bigger in Lumion Pro
than in Lumion (709 vs 2078 models). There's more information here:http://lumion3d.com/specs/
Would it be possible to give a customer a custom made Lumion 3d installation, where particular library files are removed?
No, this is not possible. It is also not possible to save the built-in materials with custom scales.
I already red its not possible, but that was last year, so i just ask again. Is it possilbe to add own IES lights to Lumion 3?
No, this is not possible.
Im just curious. When u startup Lumion u can see a "quest 3D" logo. Now on their hp it looks almost like almost the same product you guys have.
So what is the differents between lumion 3d and quest 3d?
Lumion is architectural visualisation software made with Quest3D. It is easy to use and does not require any 3D graphics skills or programming skills.
Quest3D is software that allows you to make 3D applications using a unique visual programming language. You can make anything from 3D simulations to custom-made architectural visualisations.
Act-3D is the company behind both Lumion and Quest3D.
