Snow through the roof

Hi, i want to add the effect "snow" in an interior scene, but the snow goes through the roof of the flat.
Yesterday i called with a man from the german lumion (cycot gmbh) and he told me, that in the moment, Lumion 6.5 can not change the problem of the snow.

Is it possible, that in Lumion 7 the snow doensn´t fall through the roof in a interior scene? Next week i want to call with him again, that we can test the Lumion 7 demo. Maybe it´s then released.

Thanks, Marc

Hi Marc, thanks for your interest in Lumion. :)

The Snow effect in Lumion does not distinguish between interiors and exteriors and will be visible everywhere.

This is a limitation in the software and also applies to version 7.0.

I should mention that the 7-day fully functional Trial version of of Lumion 7.0 Pro has been available from the German reseller Cycot GmbH since the 1st of November.

Let us know if we can help with anything else. :)

Hi Morten,

thanks for your fast answer :-D Before three days, i wanted to download the demo of Lumion 7 from cycot gmbh, but there was display only Lumion 5.3. I wasn´t download it, because of the older version. Are you sure, that i can download the lumion 7 demo by cycot or Lumion in Holland? If yes, i want to download it now. If not, i wait until next week. That´s ok, too?

Is there a solution in near future (Lumion 7), that the snow doesn´t fall through the roof. Soon it´s christmas and i want to create a flat with snow outside the flat :)

Thanks Marc

Hey Marc, there are two different evaluation versions: a Demo version of Lumion 5.3 and a 7-day Trial version of Lumion 7.0 Pro. Please click here to see the difference.

The one you should ask for in a direct email to Cycot GmbH is the 7-day Trial version of Lumion 7.0 Pro (which requires that you forward certain details to the reseller).

The Demo version of Lumion 5.3 is very old, quite limited and I would not recommend it for more than just checking if Lumion will run on your PC.

Regarding the snow, the developers of Lumion do not reveal what they're working on in future updates, so unfortunately I can't answer your question. However, I would recommend that you sign up for the Lumion newsletter to get all the latest information and announcements. :)

Let us know if we can help with anything else.

Hi Marc, I hope you mean the 7-day Trial version of Lumion 7.0 Pro. :)

The Download button on Lumion3D.de will only let you download the Demo version of Lumion 5.3.

You need to contact Cycot GmbH directly via email to apply for a 7-day Trial version of Lumion 7.0 Pro.

You can't download this version without contacting them.

(The 7-day Trial version of Lumion 7.0 Pro works just like the full commercial version, so it's only made available to companies that are seriously thinking about buying Lumion)
