How to set up Lumion for Urban Settings?

Hi
I am new in Lumion and I would like to use it to render my master plan.
The Master Plan is complete but it is just made of Lines and Fill from Archicad 16.
My Questions are:
1- Can I import the file as it is in Lumion and place the buildings using the lines as guidelines? If not what will be appropriate method to achieve it
2- How can I change Lumion for Urban Settings (covering a larger area compare to the one the default camera covers.

Thanks

If you can export it as a .fbx or .dae you can import to Lumion. But that is not very efficient. You will be introducing a big file that is just flat and you can't work the ground around it.
You would be better to convert it to an image and project it on your own terrain then import your terrain.

You can import a very large terrain...I have seen terrain stretched out a few k in each direction over the Lumion terrain. You have to shape your terrain in your own modeler and import it. You can paint it with Lumion materials or as I mentioned project your  own. Once you have imported you can continue to ad detail to your image with PS and re-open in Lumion as the master plan grows.
