Hi

Sorry, not quite sure what you are requiring, so if go down wrong track apologies.

What version of Lumion are you using?

Lumion treats any textures for materials as a square for standard tiling purposes only when you need to set the scale directly in Lumion.

If a user applies a non-square texture in the modelling application, it will be imported as non-square and the UV coordinates used by Lumion.

To make a rectangular; pad out the image, ie make the canvas larger on each side proportionately to the size required, with a transparent background and then saved with transparency in PNG or TGA (or DDS (DXT5)).

2. i make movie 10 mints . in same time i want make car movie from mints 5 to 8 only

    10 mints only ?

Use Advanced Move Effect and set the keyframe from 5 minutes and another (or last keyframe) at 8 minutes.

Sometimes it is best to make a movie with a number of smaller clips and this helps with doing things like animation.  So you could have a number of clips prior to one for car animation and that clip commences at 5 minutes and could be 3 minutes long.   Doing this makes it easy to also use the basic animation tool Move Effect.
