Evaluating Lumion to recreate a realistic construction environment, wanted to ask to more expert users if will be possible using Lumion standard assets and tools to start from this 3d model



and edit, enrich and render it to become the most similar to this

Thank you. :)

There are actually two different Trial versions of Lumion. I would recommend testing Lumion 8.3 Pro Trial instead - it's valid for 7 days and includes the full model library:

Knowledge Base article: Is there a Trial version of Lumion?

Regarding your question, there aren't a lot of models for construction work/sites in the Lumion model library.

You can check out all of the models here:

Knowledge Base article: Which models are available in the Model Library?

To get started, I would recommend searching for some suitable construction site models at:

External link: 3D Warehouse.

As for showing the model at different stages in a phasing animation, I would recommend moving the various parts of the model to different Layers and using the 'Layer Visibility' effect in Lumion 8.3 Pro Trial to show/hide Layers:



You could also consider using the 'Move', 'Advanced Move' and 'Sky Drop' effects to make the various parts of the model appear in an animation:







Hope this is enough to get you started. :)
