Hi Michael, are you sure that videos are allowed?http://3dawards.cgarchitect.com/rules"Real-Time
This category is meant for any work that has been created using an application or plugin that facilitates real-time rendering AND user interaction. (Some examples of this type of software are Quest3d, Twinmotion, RenderLights, Lumion, Unreal Engine, etc.) Near real-time rendering engines like iray or QuickSilver do not qualify for this category."
In other words, if you use Lumion for rendering videos, each frame takes a few seconds in 3 star quality, so isn't that more like iRay/QuickSilver, i.e. near real-time rendering?
I guess we should ask Jeff Mottle to clarify whether they want Lumion Scene
files, so they can inspect your scenes in Lumion - or if videos are acceptable. If the latter is the case, we need to know what constitutes an acceptable render-time per frame in order to qualify as a real-time rendering engine...
