Hello to everyone. I've just a question for you.
Is it possible to use an existing background or photo and import the 3d model, so to have a final project in a correct photorealistic insert?
Thanks

In the past I have generally done that in the modelling software before bringing it in to Lumion.

So it's not possible to set a background in Lumion.
And how did you do?

 What I'm doing is to use the Overlay effect of the background and then match the camera to the background image and merge the rendering and background in Photoshop.

Here's the a Street Enhancement Project that I did using Overlay Effects to match the Camera and montage the renderings in the background in Photoshop.

Sky Dome is a Half Sphere that one maps an image onto that can be seen as a background.
Maybe it is not the best for this particular issue.

Perhaps, one could just map the image one wants in the background of their "shot" onto a flat mesh object and bring that into Lumion and go from there.   :)

You can also use a cut cylinder and map background images to it.  The key is that you clear the sky from the image so it is transparent, and the Lumion sky and clouds can be seen.  Good for background mountains etc, and where you have the camera moving around more.

I'm sorry to everyone but I do not understand what you mean about Sky dome. How does it work?
I'm OK with Photoshop but it'd be easier setting in Lumion...

Thanks!

yes... but it's in 3DSmax...
I might understand that there's a way in Lumion to have the same result!
