- Is it possible to place a light directly from lumion
Yes, the IES lights are available in Lumion Basic
- Is it possible to make a section plane (clip plane)
If you "only" have Lumion Basic, you would need to purchase the Animation
plug-in to get access to the cross section functionality.
Lumion basic and Lumion ultimate is the same, can we do the same thing but the difference is "just" more models and more FX added in the library?
Lumion Ultimate contains a lot more models, 9 extra Movie
effects, Ocean, Waterfall
material, more animation options (such as the ability to import animations via FBX), animated cross sections, Sky Drop effect etc.
You basically just need to check the middle column for entries that say "Requires plug-in
" to see what isn't included if you buy Lumion Basic
What I would suggest is to evaluate all the features in Lumion Free
to find out if there's anything you'd miss if you bought Lumion Basic
However, the most important thing is to test the ArchiCAD -> DWG -> Lumion
pipeline. If you encounter any problems with this procedure, please post them in the Importing
section of the forum, so that Arthur, our import/export guru, can help you out.
