Material Mapping

I finish my white model in google Sketchup, usually when i use 3ds max, i would apply material in 3ds max. But for lumion, should i also finish all the material mapping in Sketchup too? then edit in lumion? or I should just import the white model in lumion, then apply materials on that?

And i also want to ask that how to adjust the opacity for the materials
for examples i want to do such a kind of things.
sth like translucent glass with some graphics printed on.

Oh, that's creative to do a curtain instead of a traslucent glass which lumion cannot do :)

I learn a lesson, thank you very much, it provides a option for me.

I was just thinking about should i give lumion up.

thanks dude.

hi johnson
just make a uv mapping with the pictutre on a plane in your 3D editor
import it in lumion
change the texture to glass in lumion
set the texture influence and the double side sliders to max
