Importing camera from scketch-up

Hello Everyone,
I am working on a project that requires me to align a rendering perspective perfectly with a photo ... so ultimetley I can Photoshop the two together. I used the photomatch tool in Sketch-up and it worked perfectly, is there a way to import the camera view so I can render it in Lumion?
Thanks for the help!

Love life,
Mike

That would be a negative ghost rider.

I've never tried this, but, maybe print your photo on a clear medium and stick it to your screen while in Lumion, then adjust your viewpoint accordingly and save the scene. Then mesh the two in Photoshop. I know what you're thinking, "primitive man invents photo match for Lumion", but it might work!  :D

You can already do this in 3.0. It seems the "Camera not saving" bug in the movie mode is fixed. You may create your mask with "Overlay" effect and match your camera and save it.

Mmmm. That sounds easier. And no tape required!
