Photo Settings - Saving

Hey guys. I have been toying around with Lumion on and off for a while and have yet to find out how to save the sun settings or clouds, or any other "effect" on a per view basis. For example, one side of the building looks nice and is shaded and the other side is too bright for a decent rendering. Is there a way to save the effect per view?

Thanks,

Hi civicduty, which version of Lumion are you using?

Hi civicduty

Photo Mode only provides for the one set of effects for all Photos.

However, in Movie Mode you can set effects per clip.  As each clip can contain camera snapshots similar to what you get in Photo Mode, you can use Movie Mode to set all sorts of variations in effects.  Use the Image or Single tabs for rendering, with Single giving you the same standard resolutions as in Photo Mode.  Image lets you output among other things for each snapshot, but at video resolutions.

The effects can be keyframed, move along timeline then click on little white circle next to each effect setting.  This means you can have the sun move around the property, and be able to have pictures rendered for any keyframe (click on little pagination arrows back and next once keyframes are added) or any other position or snapshot on the timeline.

Also, you can use multiple clips to create any combination of different views and different effects.

Other options include using the Sun, Sky and Cloud Effects to adjust the world lighting conditions.

Also, although not strictly correct, as the lighting conditions reflect the real world, you can add Omni lights to increase the lighting in areas you want to manipulate/adjust.

Have you seen the Video Tutorials (see menu link top of page)?

Thank you for the reply, Peter. I will give the movie stills a go and see where I land.

Let us know how you get on, or if there's further questions, feel free to post.

Note Lumion v3.2.1 is now getting a bit old as versions go, but still a good introduction and lots of features still the same or similar to more recent versions.  You can also request to get access to a 7 day Trial of version 5 via your local reseller.
