Golf Course Design

I was recently asked to collaborate with a golf course designer for a rendering that would show my plant materials worked into a proposed course. Having only a plan view image of the course and cad files, how would I develop elements in a course? ie: tees, fairways, bunkers, greens, all with very intricate detail? My part is easy but not sure if Lumion is the best option for golf course design. Does anyone know of a good program for golf design that I can easily integrate landscape material?

I had the same situation come up.

I found some stuff online.
But mostly I modeled in 3DS Max Design and Civil 3D.

I suppose this is not much help unless you have those programs.  But then again maybe you do.

If is an AutoCad file you could play around with the contours but in the end you would have to find a way to generate a TIN for the terrain.   Not sure if you can to that in ACAD since it has been years since I worked in AutoCad.
Perhaps the engineers can provide you with the TIN?
I use Revit now and it does not do well with terrains hence the Civil 3D.

Nice job tracy!

Bet getting all those surfaces right was a pain.  Different grass.  Sand traps.
All of it.

I never seem to have much luck detailing terrains in Revit myself.  Just too hard to tune up.
I used to use Eagle Point to create the TINs and break lines to soften the points but I find Civil 3D more useful - besides most civil engineers use it so I can easily import the files.

Max Design is especially helpful to get at the subobjects and make for more controlled edges for me.

I would post some of my work but alas like most everything else it is confidential.

Again.  Nice work.

Hi tracy305

So you did all the land work in Revit.  Perhaps you would like to provide some details about the steps and tools used.

Also, which version of Lumion did you use?

Projects are usually submitted to their own forum topics and can include details as per SUBMISSION RULES: Finished projects board.

Can you clarify, because I see for the description on YouTube you say it was made with CyberLink PowerDirector 12, so wasn't it made with Lumion and the video editing was PowerDirector?

Hi Petern and Virgil
I use revit for model + lumion ver 3.0.1, Powedirection or proshow Produce for edit movie.
You see the movie below will clear...

Tracy

Have you tried making anaglyphs? 

I find the little extra work makes for a lot of sizzle on terrain model stuff.
Since you have the model and Max you are just about set up already.
