How do I get Photos from Movie with Effects Activated?

I have added a Sketch style Artistic Effect to a movie and have been trying to produce photos with this effect, but every time I select the camera icon the scene reverts back to default settings and my Sketch style disappears. I'm just wondering if this is a bug or if there is another way to capture photos from a movie with effects activated.

Hi Derek, you need to render this frames from EXPORT RANGE, works for the entire movie too.
A tip, when you click Export Range, you see the timeline in Frames not more by seconds. You can write in a paper all the Keyframes you want, and from the Export Range put one by one in the first box, the second always in Zero and Render.

Let's hope that in 3.1 it works better. I suffer too, because I work in the same way as Derek.
And EDIT: Let's focusses in the excellent improvements they have achieved with this new version.
Babe I remember how many times you've asked to embed video footage MP4 and for the possibility to rotate camera. I repeat again, put a good face, this will always goes for Better, although there are some differences that we are not comfortable, it will unquestionably goes for BETTER, Don't you believe too??  :)

So you guys tell me I can't go with the movie slider to the place/frame I want, just press the photo button, and have my frame?

I work a lot like this!  |:(

SOmetimes I even set up quickly a short clip with my effects just to make some shots.

Thanks so much Nicolas. That isn't something I would have figured out myself. As you say, a few things are different now but the overall package is greatly improved. Amazing in fact!

I agree with Babe, it makes no sense! When i pay for an update, i don't want to learn again how to use the soft, and lost some of the function... No pictures from movies, no more clip plane effect, some buggs,...  :'(
I really like lumion and need it for my job, but when i give us 900€, i don't want to have a beta version... :-\
But i understand also that the lumion team is doing a great job, and i'm pretty sure that everything will be fixed very soon... :-D
Maybe they have just market the update a bit too early...

I think its good that they released it. So a lot of customers can give feedback like it is now. I like the idea of open-beta because you can give feedback very soon and work a bit into the soft. Lumion 2.5 doesnt get bad with the release of 3.0 so my clients still love it until 3.0 is feeling better. I really can't judge so far and only loaded an 2.5 scene into 3.0. Most stuff I've seen so far was okay. The devil is the detail. ;)

But I also can follow your point about paying for the soft and not wanting to find features on different places. We all were very amazed about the amount of things which finally went into 3.0 and some are disappointed now.

I completely agree with this. To me it does not seem very professional.
In addition, at this price level, I think the minimum would be to have a PRECISE and EXHAUSTIVE list of the new features AND CHANGES, a manual online, and I find painful (even if it's sympatic) to be forced to wait tricks users to exploit software.
We are still a number to use Lumion in our work and it is not acceptable that an update, amputated certain features program. What can I do with my current projects? I announced to my client that I do an update and I am henceforth unable to provide images in large format with the quality that I had told him ( dephtmap...) ?
Lumion is presented as a software to create great architectural videos but Is there an architect in the team Lumion? I wonder how many projects require basketball players, airliners, people in swimsuits, a walk in the clouds ... As an architect what I miss the most is accuracy (top view, front view ... camera placement, daylight system, more terrain modeling tools), more textures, more cars (with drivers), more "usual" characters... I wonder how many projects require basketball players, airliners, people in swimsuits, a walk in the clouds ...?
Anyway, I like Lumion, I appreciate the ambiance of this forum, I recognize that Lumion's team do a good job, and I probably will invest again in the update but I'd like a little more consideration for the demands of professional users, and a marketing policy more respectful of customers that we are.

Okay I now got a closer look and for me the movie/photo stuff works like ever.
I now can even add extra movie filters to the photo mode and not only movie mode which give me the ability to change the look in photo mode only or copy-paste over effect palette from one spot to another. :D

Hi woochou, thank you for your feedback.

I think the minimum would be to have a PRECISE and EXHAUSTIVE list of the new features AND CHANGES
You're right, the list is not yet exhaustive - it will be updated over the coming days:
http://lumion3d.com/forum/announcements/lumion-3-0-released/msg43659/#msg43659

I will also add a new Tips, Tricks and Shortcuts thread for Lumion 3.

Lumion is presented as a software to create great architectural videos but Is there an architect in the team Lumion?
Yes, and I offer my advice to the 3 main developers (Ferry, Remko and Arthur), both based on my own experience and based on the feedback we get from customers and beta testers. However, all design decisions are made by those 3 developers based on what they believe will improve Lumion the most (and what is technically feasible).

I wonder how many projects require basketball players, airliners, people in swimsuits, a walk in the clouds ...
Just because you do not need those particular models/features does not mean that nobody else will benefit from them.

We add models to the Model Library in Lumion based on what both existing customers have previously requested as well as on the types of potential customers who we hope would like to buy Lumion in the future.

As an architect what I miss the most is accuracy (top view, front view ... camera placement, daylight system, more terrain modeling tools), more textures, more cars (with drivers), more "usual" characters... I wonder how many projects require basketball players, airliners, people in swimsuits, a walk in the clouds ...?
Please post these requests in the Wish List section, so that we can register your interest. Otherwise your posts will drown in the General Discussion area:
http://lumion3d.com/forum/new-features-wish-list/

I can also explain why there is no top/side/axionometric views, no cars with drivers and no Sun Study function in Lumion, provided that you start a new thread in that section.
