Hi All,

I have now submitted my entry for the Lumion competition.  It represents about 2-3 weeks of work.  I really enjoyed the creative process, and want to thank all those who set up the opportunity to participate.  I have only one small frustration here. My resort proposal represented 11 x MP4 video renders.  When I finally put it together of all the output format choices using Magix Movie Edit Pro 15, the MP4 produced the worst output quality, even when compared to Microsoft's WMV, and MPEG1 or 2!

I accept the rules set before me, but I would have preferred to have submitted something which gave a better level of resolution.  In the end the quality was compromised, even when I tried other converter alternatives.  I just hope the judges will judge based on content, not video output quality...  otherwise a lot of wasted time... :(

Notwithstanding this small issue, best of luck to all the other contributors.  Looking forward to seeing the results one day!

Best regards,

You are not alone, the issue of file format is what I spoke about in my previous posts. However, I suppose the emphasis on .mp4 file format could be that it is a widely  playable format on weaker computers. I was able to play my file on my mobile phone
from the link that I sent to Lumion Team.
