Dear support,

first of all I have to say that I am very satisfied with lumion, please don t misunderstand me... There are a few things that can be improved (I posted them already). I think the more the community will talk about there impressions and experiences, the stronger the software will be at the end.

One new question that arises to me is, you are saying in the technical details, that the sun position can be adjusted by geographical coordinates and the time. Where? I only now the place where I can adjust the angle of the sun and so on, but I would love to say: My scene is actualy in Berlin for example and it is the 7th of december, 12:00. Is that possibe? Is that planned in the future?

The next things that was written in the details, was that there will be 6 different water types. Where can I find them, or what did you meant with that?

Setting sun by location/date/time is planned.


To change water type, select the water icon in landscape , select then the most right icon, then you get a new dialog with teh avialable water types

Is it also possible to change the water effet, when it is an object I modelled myself? Because in the material dropdown I got only proposed one water material as far as I can see.

if you change the water on the water menu your own water also changes to that global water type.
