[Answered] Revit Materials in Lumion

Before I buy Lumion I would like to know what Revit materials are supported in Lumion. I've noticed some do not show up properly and would need to be recreated in Lumion. Can I get information on what native Revit materials do not work properly in Lumion?

I understand procedural materials do not work properly. Are there any other factors in a Revit material that would cause it to not display very well in Lumion? I am particularly interested in Lumion LiveSync because I do not want to have to go into Lumion to adjust materials. I want to know what types of materials are supported/not supported out of the box.

Thank you.

Hi Joshua, welcome. :)

This information is available in the section with the title 'Which materials are supported?' on the Revit page.

Let us know if there's anything else we can help with.

I don't see any mention of procedural materials here. Can you confirm whether or not all procedural materials created in Revit will render properly?

Hello again, Joshua.

Procedural Revit materials are unfortunately not supported.

If you download the Trial version you could try exporting a few models to Lumion to see how many of your Revit materials you'd need to replace.
