Or better yet, create your model in Revit, with complete light fixtures--pole, housing, diffuser,
and lamp/light source--and then have them recognized inside Lumion, perhaps with a script
which queries the Collada file from Revit--recognizes the Revit "light sources" and replaces them with a Lumion light (per the user's choosing) automatically.
We have THOUSANDS of lights in a lot of our Casino and Hotel models. And that is just lights.
I commend you for thinking of the "proxy" idea, as a "workaround"--but there must be a better,
more global/efficient manner of placing large quantities of objects ( not just lights--how about trees/shrubs, furniture, cars, people, etc.). Time is money. We do not like to manually replace something which we have already modeled once in Revit. (or other 3d app).
