...the Google 3d warehouse, have dynamic components where the doors will swing open and drawers will pull out, provided you click on the item using the component icon in SketchUp...

Yes, indeed, when you interact them in SketchUp. The problem is that none of the exporters can export that as animation. Even SketchUp's own animation exporter cannot export DC animation into a video file.

I also wish that any of the animations (there are lots of plugins) could be exported to Lumion but I think it should be the Google development team who should incorporate this into their exporters - and although they are willing to make some changes (like the latest Collada exporter), this may not be added in the near future.

Well that's a bit of sad news you bring us Gaieus! I was hoping this discussion was going to get blendman to leave the beach in the UAE and make us another great tutorial "DC export from SketchUp for use in Lumion" .......Sigh!  |:(

You can still animate a door exported from SketchUp in Lumion! Only those more complex animations that are currently only possible with exported animation from Max are not possible. True that a garage door as you described would not be among them.

Well you would find the beaches in the UAE pretty empty here now...it it is after all winter, and yes it is cold!

I have given some thought to continuing my tutorial series, but after my trip to  Australia next week....

Many thanks for the thoughts.
