1. i want to ask about is it possible to move the axes of one object, for example, i want to rotate a car, but i want the axes is located on the back side of car (currently there is in the middle of car)

2. is that possible to make a pitch / bank rotation in people object?? i want to rotate the walking people into the horizontal position, so it can looks like a swimming motion people, but everytime i use advance animation to move it, it always back to original vertical position, and i can't rotate it, even using the rotate option in advance animation mode

can you help me to answer this question please?? sorry to bothering you..

Hi danniel, unfortunately neither of those are currently possible in Lumion.

hmmm okay morten.. but why the car can be rotated in advanced animation and move base on the pitch / bank rotation that i've made, but why it can't be implemented for people?? ???

btw, i would like to appreciate of the achievement that you and your team have done.. I satisfied enough to use lumion for my presentation. its so easy, helpful and great software..  :)

why it can't be implemented for people??

I guess it's because the developers assume that people usually walk/stand upright.

It's not possible to rotate the 2D people in Lumion manually - they automatically turn to face the camera at all times, so you would have to import your own 2D people to achieve this.
