Is there a way to change the color of the sky?

Hi all!

Loving Lumion so far however my client is wanting clean white renders with lines? Two questions:

1. Is there a way to change the sky color to just white instead of blue? similar to the white template file you can load when you open Lumion.

2. Is there a way to show the lines and edges of the imported model? I tried the sketch however it gets rid of the the textures and makes it more grainy.

Thanks all ahead of time I really appreciate your help!

Hi Kjammer

1. Is there a way to change the sky color to just white instead of blue? similar to the white template file you can load when you open Lumion.

No, but there's two workarounds:
1. Add a Cloud Effect and max out the settings (see attached).  It does not fully remove, and there's still an horizon.  Problem is that it also changes the lighting for the scene, so you would need to reduce Sun Brightness.  Seems to work in a quick test.

2. Add a semi-hemisphere/dome large enough for the subject content to be contained within and set the colour to white.

3.  There is another that can sometimes be used but for stills only. Just place a large plane behind the subject content so that it acts as a background and fills the background area of view.



2. Is there a way to show the lines and edges of the imported model? I tried the sketch however it gets rid of the the textures and makes it more grainy.

You can if using (or in some cases can import/export with) SketchUp.  Export with Edges using Collada DAE format.  Use either the model with edges, or some add the same model with edges and make the materials Invisible, so they can have greater control over the how and when to display edging.
