Sound is the fourth dimension. You have no idea how people react to visualizations, animations for that matter, with their subconsciousness. Music or background sound steers the mood of the public.
Take early silent movies and notice how sound revolutionized the perception of movies.
Nothing has changed since. Consciousness is just the tip of the Unconsciousness iceberg. It involves sound, color, pace, etc.
Having sound in Lumion and hopefully movie editing capabilities would eliminate the necessity to use another software package (fe Premiere). Why make things complicated?
If you prefer talking during the presentation, just turn down the sound.
In the past I even had plug-ins with their own dongles...
and with each upgrade of the main software package the question if the plug-ins still work came always back to haunt you.
