hello all

this is probably a stupid question, but i am new here. lets say i make a pool in sketchup, most of the pool is negative, when i import to lumion it is above the ground and if i move it lower the water gets replaced by terrain, i have noticed that most pools are elevated in videos, is this
because lumion does not see negative levels or just me being dumb. cheers shaun  ???

Hi shaun, please read the paragraph about terrains in Lumion in this thread:
http://lumion3d.com/forum/f-a-q/lumion-2-tips-tricks-and-shortcuts/

You will basically have to import a heightmap texture to get the base terrain level to be higher up to begin with. A 100% white image as a heightmap will set the base terrain level to 200m.
