Even if you don't fancy following the tutorial,
I hope you'll find the landscape materials list useful.


Please read the following carefully:

1: Results based upon this tutorial might make Lumion unstable.
I'd advise you to make a separate Lumion installation,
away from your work-copy and experiment with that version 1st.

2: This is just a temporary workaround.
It's already been announced official custom landscape presets will be made available in the near future.

You have been warned!  :D
Don't forget to backup your sourcefiles!  ;)

1) Look at the  Landscape Materials list_LQ.jpg to see if the materials are familiar to you.
2) Follow the Example_Rename_LQ.jpg steps with Landscape Materials list_LQ.jpg as your visual guide.

Enjoy!
If you think you have made a really cool new preset, please share some screens.

Np Lofts, I'm currently making some additional shots to fill in the blanks.
Stay tuned and let me know -once I've posted them- if they made it more clear ok?

NICE :D

Swapped the landscape materials list for one with better resolution so it's more useful as a reference guide for  everyone, even if they don't want to follow the tutorial.

Hello Aaron,
you did modify the textures in the cgrs with quest, right? Or is there another possibility to change the textures?
Thx,
Frank

I think this is without any new texture. Just making new sets from our current sets.

Hi Frank, indeed, I'd say it's just a fairly simple rename job. If we could make our own textures that would be really great (that and a couple more slots :))

OK, now i´ve got it.
And, i agree, wanna have control over textures too. So painting dirt on walls or creating own urban landscape-sets would be possible...
Maybe in the main-prog not in plugin-package?  ;)

Definitely /asphalt/blacktop/pitch/road surface/ whatever you want to call it, is missing among the landscape materials.  It'd be great to have this option and as already mentioned more slots ;-) are more than welcome. 

By the way I was wondering how to get straight borders between two landscape materials. In the example "Town" gravel roads have straight borderline edges with the grass material.  Is there some kind of a marking tool I missed?

There is 2 ways to achieve straight borders to some extend:

1) try to draw as steady a line as you can, then push back the stuff that gets too much blended over.

2) Use a ruler-like device. Something to hold your mouse against and fixate it on a axis so to speak.
(If you have a tablet with pen then this is easier though)

I don't think the "Town" example materials borders were done like you suggest in 1)
A Wacom tablet would help but there must be a third way...
