Thanks for your infos and insights. To me, I just feel that while we can have real-time navigation. Why we still need to wait quite long, compared to the real-time navigation, when export to files?
IMO there're so many CUDA computing farm projects which I may confused about applicable, these powerful stuff may required different designs. Since there're still rooms for speed improvement when we do export full animation, it is not yet near real-time, if we can take advantage on it. I just wish Lumion to be real BIG, maybe too excited
Also, what you think about this ? Look impressive, exportable. Check out their videos:http://www.lumatix.com/atrium-designer/
With almost real-time G.I, it is one of a kind pre vis on 3ds max and I don't know why they slump thier price to the floor a few days ago:
I doubt they may know something about 3DS Max Excalibur (XBR) on viewport improvements in coming versions. That's juts my guess, there're so many good reasons for them to do it.
To me, for non-3DS Max users and for one who don't like tedious work, Lumion quality is better and have potentials for more fields. But their integration with V-Ray, mental ray and standard lighting in 3DS Max is also real nice. Wish Lumion have some renderer, e.g. Octane, link to it.
