Placing plants vertically.

Hi everyone,


I try desperately to place plants on a wall (green wall) but I do not. I tried with three rotation tools, nothing to do! They always run on the same axis (Z).

Best regard's

You can't. But if you really need to show this, you could flip your model on its side and place the tree, then use the handheld camera effect to tilt the camera 90 degrees - giving the illusion of having plants on the wall.

The Plants in Lumion are currently limited to a flat horizontal plane, so no ability to rotate for a slope.  This is a limitation of the SpeedTree format.

Jared, totally out-of-the-box idea, thanks  :7.

You would need to make the green wall in a 3d modelling tool, but ensure poly count is optimised and everything collapsed to a single mesh.

There are a few plants such as the Ivy (one available in Lumion (standard) that could be used to emulate a green wall, and a few plants that if scaled right can be added to the wall so that even though vertical, some of the plant mass is showing. 

This might be something also for the plant wishlist.

I actually thought of this a long time ago and meant to post it... but I don't know. Guess I forgot.
