Here's another image of one of the available characters.

These athletes are very natural, congratulations.  :o

New characters are looking great, but just wondering one thing. Are there sports people from other nations,too? Afro-American basketball players are very very rare around here :)

Hi portrait, not in 3.0 but perhaps in a later update (the goal for the new characters in 3.0 has been to introduce more variety and there's more to come).

Just one more thing... Maybe you could put a subtle smile in their faces?
Right now they don't look like they're enjoying themselves. They look like they're lost in their thoughts.

While the enhancements of characters are great, it still looks fake and very gaming like. For gaming it's perfect, but for todays architectural stills and animation in this aggressive competing market, it's not up to par (yet). So, a humble suggestion( and maybe someone has suggested it already)  is to also include 2d photo realistic people, grey or black silhouette characters and translucent characters. Translucent trees would also ad a little bit more realism to the scene.

I agree that the new models are still videogamish... Maybe it's time the Lumion artists try some Autodesk software to do this job:  8)

You can't use 123 Catch models very well for animation. The meshes are not so nice so it will be maybe a problem if you animate them. With a proper 3D scanner it can work better.

See this: http://www.axyz-design.com/index.php?categoryId=216

For only 54€ this kind of model is awesome and I wish it could be imported into Lumion 3 with just a export click and its rig. :)
It will get so much flexibility then.

Video game makers do not make characters look like they do on purpose. If they could have more realistic models they would have used those of course.

The thing that makes models look realistic is the lighting. It's easy to capture a model which includes lighting and everything looks good. The problem with models like these is that you cannot move them and the lighting needs to match the original situation or they look weird. Looks like a really cool app by the way! There's nothing stopping you from using it and scanning a model to DAE and import it.

Another thing is that we have to consider technical details too. The original models have much higher textures but if we would use those there wouldn't be any memory left for the actual building :D

I asked and models from programs like catch123D are very inefficient so aside from texturing issues they have huge amounts of polygons. Maybe someone could try to load a model into Lumion and see how it looks.

123 catch is really great for scanning decorations and other props. :)

Looks like you are new to Lumion because nearly everything you mention is already included since version 1.0 :D

Thanks for your feedback, guys. As I mentioned in a previous post, this is a sneak preview and the characters do not represent the final versions in Lumion 3.0, so you can expect things to improve.
