I'm pretty confident the shots currently on display don't do the real-deal much justice.
The Lumion devteam is very small and I can only guess they are just way too busy to impress the hell out of us with gorgeous demorenders. Gladly so tbh.
Too many times I've tried to reproduce stunning examples on slick websites
to discover it was all a bunch of bull.
That said, of course its true lighting, no matter what format is chosen, only comes to maturity these days when paired with a proper GI/Radiosity sollution.
Something along the lines of CryEngine3. Yes, apples and oranges, but relatively small ones.
Have a look at this:http://bac9.imgur.com/lime_hall
Realtime (no lightmaps) with crude but working GI.
Good enough I reckon
