Hi Eskorkmaz

Before we proceed, please register your Lumion 5 license key to your forum Account (click here, scroll to the bottom and enter your license number).  Thanks in advance.

Also, what was your prior version that you upgraded from so we know what you were previously using in the Lumion UI?

And is your version v5.7.2?

Hi Eskorkmaz

There's a difference in versions between v5.7.0 and v5.7.2, so it helps to know exactly which version, and also which product of Lumion.  It's shown in the Window, top left corner, or you can also see it when you go to Files:)

Please complete the step on registering your license.  See the instructions in our FAQ topic: NEED SUPPORT? on registering your license.

Thanks Eskorkmaz

I see you are now registered but there's no license in your Account and no icon.  Can you please update your Account (add/register the license) with your license please.

Thank you very much Eskorkmaz.  Apologies for the added steps before getting to your question, but adding your has a number of benefits for you, including access to the Commercial Section of the forum.

There were significant changes to Lumion for the materials system between v4 and v5.

I suggest:
1. Read through our LUMION 5: Quickstart Guide

For (Standard) materials see topic: HOW TO CHANGE STANDARD MATERIAL PROPERTIES.  Bump (normalmap) options are now automatic, although you can remove and add in your own normalmap if needed.  Material brightness is generally part of the Physically Based Rendering (PBR) of materials, but you can also adjust directly using the Emissive property, you add that as an extra property via the ***More button when needed.

2. Reading through the Release Notes.

3. Watch the Video Tutorials, especially the "get To Know Lumion In 15 Minutes"
4. There's a new set of Case Study Tutorials lists at bottom of the Tutorials page.

Also check out LUMION 5: Keyboard shortcuts as there are changes in v5.
