Scene Changing to beat of music

Hello I am thinking of buying lumion or LumenRT so i am asking questions about both on the respective forums of each.

Whats i would like to know is when several scenes are made like lets say 10 separate flythroughs, does Lumion have the ability to make each seen start at each beat of the music? or at have a scene to start where i want it in the music that is playing?

like in the video of the winner of the 2014 Lumion competition. Razor House

each scene in the video is changing with the beat of the video, was the scene change to the beat of the music also created with lumion? if so how?

Thank you

Hi firstliight

Thanks for your interest in Lumion.

Lumion does not have specialised feature to do that.  Music is added as a simple single file to play and loop throughout the movie.

Entrants to that Competition were permitted to also use a video editor in post-production.  I would assume the entrant added and timed the music to individual clips exported and then edited post-production.

However, it's not impossible to do directly in Lumion.  If you know the timing of the beats you want, then you can create a set of clips and set the time of each clip to those timings.  Lumion provides a feature where each clip can be timed either to the required camera path (flythrough), or to a time or scaling of the clips camera path.

The option is then open for the music to be added in Lumion, or the movie or clips exported individually and added to the music in post-production.

How is this done?

JHi jeromen

I'm just referring to changing the time of each clip using the scrollbars up and down to set the clips time.  When clips are created or edited the timing is managed by Lumion based on the camera path and some other default settings.  But that can be changed by setting the time yourself.

Please update your forum Account with your Lumion 5 license key (click here, scroll to the bottom and enter your license number).  The account is showing as Licensed, but re-entering will resolve the display of the license and forum icon.  Thanks in advance.
