Your model is probably covering two much ground for lumion....You can get to the outside of workable terrain.

Same with trees etc.... if you have a lot in the scene Lumion will hide the far ones to make it easier to render. You can try f11 to make them reappear or zoom back in.

They will show up in your shots and movies even thought they come and go while you are navigating in your model.

K.O. so now that everything has been setup on my scene, how do i move everything (including my model, trees. etc) to a point that i can modify my landscape.

Hi Sacha,

1) First you need to identify the 2048x2048m where the terrain can be modified. I assume that you have used a sample scene with a flat terrain to start with.

2) Then load a random texture with the Load terrain map function, so that the terrain is displaced (see the screenshot below). Now you know where to move your models to.

3) Click on the Undo button to revert to the flat terrain.

4) Select the Tree category, and use (CTRL) + Rectangular selection to select all trees & plants in your scene.

5) Select the next object category (eg, Transport), and use (CTRL) + (SHIFT) + Rectangular selection to add those objects to your selection.

6) Repeat this procedure with the other object categories, including the Import category.

7) Press (Shift) while moving the entire selection to the editable part of the terrain. (Shift) prevents the models from changing height while you move them.
