          First of all and as always my truly congratulations for lumion and my wishes of best for all of you.
          I`m a little bit sad because lumion forum could be...and it is very usefull for all the begginers and professionals, and only can be found here.
          I´ve already told in a topic, that i´ve been doing architectural vizualization for long years since probably, 1998, 1999 as an student and later as "expert" sort off.
          As always amazed with the breakthrough....Lumion must be and should be "respected"
First- Because of the team that had the vision to produce this software
Second- For the wonderfull oportunyti to make CG for everybody in a quick and "clean" way

          unfortunatly i dont have way and the capability for buying a licence, Im portuguese and the economic situation in my country, made a rolback in contruction and in the market.

         Still waiting for LUMION 3.0 Free !!!

One question and this is my last words in this topic, i´ve  been folowing  the "steps"  that some professionals made in lumion, and sometimes i see  very good and realistic images, like BABE for example, but the "gap"  betwen good sometimes very good and bad (with the same software ), makes me "dizzy",   and wondering  that there is professionals with all the TRICKS and some with none.

           After this what are the efective tricks for lumion and very high quality images
Color correction ?
Gama?
Fog??

           This is my Topic challenge   "What tricks to use to make "true"  and realistic Images.?


(at this time i´ve been doing some images with the 2.5 lumion free )

Hi Arjo, Lumion Free 3 is still in the queue.

The developers are busy working on Lumion 3.1 which among other things, will include a benchmark function. This will make it easy to figure out how suitable a graphics card is for Lumion.

Once they are done with that, the plan is to work on a dedicated new viewer application for Lumion scenes (LS3 files) and finally, it will be time to complete Lumion Free 3.1 :)

Regarding the secrets behind great renderings and videos, I guess it all boils down to how you compose your clips, i.e. the composition (what the camera is looking at), how the camera moves in a clip and which Movie effects you apply.

The easiest part is the Movie effects. We have in fact talked about making some Movie effects combinations called Lumion Looks which, as the name suggests, would make it easier to achieve various looks (retro, sci-fi, naturalism etc).

The hard part is how to edit and compose your clips - it's clear that users like BABE and Aaron have spent a lot of time practicing to get this absolutely right.

I forgot to mention lighting and materials as key factors too.

Just keep practicing and study as many tutorials in fine art, photography and cinematography as you can :)

There were some really nice presets for lighting in Lumion 2or an lumion1 version which got killed in later versions.

With realistic presets its even harder to set my work apart from others...your tools gets to easy haha.

I'll really dig that. Also, you skilled guys retouch Lumion stills in Photoshop after? Or you just do it all in Lumion?
