more people in more variations are very good !
i cant wait to see all new people with more animaitions attached.

It would be very very good if we could alter the textures of the models, and if only for colour correction to have a even more variety.
maybe in the properties window there could be an icon for load different texture.
thats of course only possible if you own all rights on the models and textures.....

kind regards

A colourmask is probably not going to be possible since we already use 2 textures per character with all channels in use (RGBA). Adding a 3rd texture for a colour mask would increase the memory usage for each character even more. As an alternative, we have made sure that the clothes are varied in both colour and (sometimes) style when a character is available in multiple versions.

I feel the same way - I use Lumion as a replacement for VRAY to create fast presentations.

I don't need (I know some do :-) )
- cartoonish people, dogs, birds etc.
- snow
- rain
- sky
- mountains

I need
- good reflections in a useable resolution
- good lights
- a good and inovative user interface

I'm looking foreward for information regarding these options :-)

Thanks.

The same here except i think the sky is really important :)
reflections is my highest concern right now :( i just hope there will be an update to that

Thank you lumion team for finally introducing seated characters. Hopefully you will have
business  characters too. One post here spoke about a very interesting aspect of characters
though I think introducing bvh motion into lumion is a far fetched dream at this stage. Lumion seems to have started off so well in terms of realism for water, clouds, artificial lights, day skies, night skies and a selected plants. We need a similar level of realism to be applied to characters and lumion shaders. Lumion must focus beyond architectural visualisation. Lumion must encompass sectors such as movie industry, simulation of educational programs, fashion industry, and advertising etc.

Perhaps the best approach to characters is to develop only two customizable characters "Mr Lumion & Ms Lumion". These could be posable according to the user's needs. Lumion clothes could be developed.

For now I am happy with the growth pace for lumion. You don't often get such a humongous upgrade with other "giant softwares". Lumion is doing great! I really appreciate.

Regards,

Every update has had not only bug fixes, but a massive amount of content improvement.  Take a step back and look at V1 vs V2...and what a huge leap it was.  People seem to be worried about getting what they pre-paid for in the upgrade, i for one am sure there will be some great new wiz-bang functionality and improvements to the existing.  I would venture to guess this will not be your AutoCAD yearly refresh of the same crap especially when you glean information from the little reveals.

I am patiently waiting to see what magic L3 will offer. I have to say i can understand all of the different perspectives in this thread and their concerns when you consider that most of us here are using Lumion as a replacement to whatever other viz software we have been using.

i rarely if ever go back and use max or kerkyhtea now. i have completely changed my workflow and process to accommodate what i can and cant get out of lumion for fast and efficient renderings that have a little extra special quality to them, and of course the ease of animation.

i too hope there is some improvement in: reflections, landscaping, cameras, etc. but i really like the other stuff that we have been shown as well.

i look forward to launch. Once again, thanks to the Lumion team for listening and responding to the mob. you guys are doing a great job. i honestly cant imagine doing visualization without Lumion now. starting with the very first issue, Lumion has been a game changer for many of us. I hope this latest version continues the trend.

Bob

Congratulations to the entire team. They are getting very good.
Characters are much desired by us all.  :-D :-D

I wish they had a more pronounced movement, as in Lumion 1. If the movement is very subtle they are not perceived, with the camera moving and distance.

The modeller is adding more motion because we noticed it too.

@Gilson: Please read this earlier post:

Morten Yes, I had read this topic.
I made the comment because the second generation of animated characters were made ​​with subtle movements.
