There's either a bug or maybe I'm not explaining things thoroughly enough, so let's find out Option A: Better explanation
For performance reasons, reflections are currently not updated in real-time in Lumion.
In the Movie section, reflections are only updated while you render a movie in 2- or 3-star mode. In other words, the reflections on the sphere will not
be updated if you:
- Render a movie in 1-star mode.
- Drag the red time slider back and forth, even though the clouds move across the sky while you do that.
In the Build section, reflections are only updated once
when you change the cloud settings in the Weather section, in order to maintain a smooth framerate while you're editing your scene.Option B: Is there a bug?
Bearing that in mind, please follow these instructions and let us know if you still can't get it to work:1)
Download the attached zip file and unzip it.2)
Copy the files in "Scenes" to Documents/LumionFree/Scenes.3)
Copy the files in "Library" to Documents/LumionFree/Library.4)
Start Lumion Free and make sure that Settings -> "Low mem mode" is switched off.5)
Load the scene called "SphericalReflections" and go to the movie section.6)
Render the movie in 2- or 3-star mode (1280x720).7)
Play the .mp4 file. Do the clouds move both in the sky and on the sphere?
