LCD screen material in Lumion?

I was wondering if I could make an LCD screen material in Lumion?

I would probably want to have my own texture to be shown on that LCD screen.

But apart from that, what material settings do I need to set, in order for some rectangular slab on the wall to look like LCD screen?

Thank you.

Hi st_george, do you mean an animated LCD screen? If so, that's not possible in the current version of Lumion.

You could try assigning a flat green color to the screen and then replacing it in your video editor.

Thank you for the reply, both of you.

I did not think about animated LCD screen. Just static one, but to look like a TV/LCD screen.

Ecuadorian, I did not understand you.
Can you be more specific please?

Sure. I thought you wanted an animated screen, so I thought perhaps you could assign a flat green color to the screen and then use the Lumion output as a chroma-keyed overlay on top of another video.
