Max land extension possible in Lumion?

Hello, I'd like to know what is the max land (Project) extensión that Lumion can handle and if there are any ways to increase this value. I've noticed that there's a limit on the land extension where you can build your landscape. Also want to know if free version has a smaller extension than the pro.

Thanks.

The Editable Terrain is a square of 2048mx2048m.  This is the same for all Lumion products.

Lumion world size is approximately 43km.

It is not possible to extend the Editable Terrain.

What users do is create the terrain in SketchUp, Revit or Max etc, export the model, then import that mesh as a model using the Import Object tool.

Because the object is a standard mesh object like other models imported, it does not support any of the features of the Lumion Terrain.  You can placed other objects including Lumion Library Objects such as plants directly on the terrain mesh but placement is relative to the Lumion Terrain for height data.

You can set the material to be same as the Lumion Terrain using the Landscape Material, or keep any textures applied in the model when imported such as Google map images.
