Hello!

I would like to know how to produce a still rendered image with effects. Could any kind person please write it step by step? :) I'm using Lumion 2,5.

Thanks,
Niclas

Free or Pro version?  Forgotten off top of head if Free allowed for auto-generating from keyframes (see 5.) or it was Pro only.

1.  Go to Movie Mode from anywhere
2.  Select a Clip; or
2a. go to any frame of a clip or whole movie(see below)
3.  Add your F/X to the movie/clip
4.  from a clip - go to Photo Mode  *key step direct from Movie to Photo
5.  Select Required snapshot(thumbnails immediately above the render buttons):  auto-generated from keyframe (Pro only?) of the current movie clip
6.  Keyframe is shown in Preview
7.  Render

Alternatively for any frame from a movie/clip: after 4
- use the scrubbar/timeline in Movie Mode to any frame desired
- from there go to Photo Mode and the current frame is shown in the Preview for rendering.

Thanks for respons!

I'm using Lumion Pro :) I got a few "?" from point 5, could you explain it again? I got the view I want in "Photomode", do I only save it to desktop to "render" it? Or is there any other way to render it as in other rendering programs?

Hi Niclasbladh, in Lumion 2.5, if you go from Movie mode to Photo mode, the exposure, focal length and effects are "inherited", so that you can render a still image in Photo mode with all your Movie effects.

Once you're in Photo mode, all you need to do is to click on one of the 4 resolution buttons, depending on which resolution you need. The Email/Desktop/Print/Poster names were added to describe what 'end-products' the resolutions are suitable for.

Allright now I'm understanding. Very easy and powerful tool! :) Another problem that came up for me is when I'm about to lower a house or a pool into the ground the landscape gets through the walls and it's kinda hard to get it smooth. Is there any way to get the landscape "stops" moving when it hits a wall?

Thanks,

Niclas

No, this is not possible.

If you need a terrain with a 'hard' edge along the outline of a swimming pool for example, I would recommend importing your own terrain model, and apply the Landscape material to it. This lets you paint your imported terrain model just like the 'native' Lumion terrain.
