ok really nice,

i give 5% from updateprice for the clouds and 5% for the ocean and 10% less for to pay half of the models and speedtrees if i have payed in 2.

whats are the 100% of the update?

the cloudseffects there are volums? , its possibl to change the clouds layer high? because i use real 3d tv (Stereo) for pesentation 4k 55zoll. in 2.5 the clouds are only maps far away like a cube and not really to use for 3d picture and films. same for the sketch filter effects too.

blease i dont need, one more wackel dackel camera

and why i dont have, the stickers like everyone (ultimate etc.) the blue one?.  ::)

this is made with a sketchup plugin for 160$

whats the name of that plugin ? it looks nice

Please, give us some clue about reflection and GI on the 3.0 version.

I'm waiting for some infos about those to make a pitch on a potential project.

What we revealed today is good news for Lumion users that rarely use video/photo effects.

We made it easier to choose and navigate in the effects area.

here is the latest news. http://lumion3d.com/lumion-3.0-preview

More info will be released soon about new functions and improvements. The list is long.

Thank You Truls, this is great with effect picker icon , but let me suggest smth,
please add Text under the Icon name of color/scene/special effect; pro effect or animation to make it more comfortable and readable.thank you again

yes text is important, because, how you can explane somebody for example by phone or mail wich effects or icons he had to use.

maybe so.: 1. colum 2. zell loly pop icon its looks like dagobert or luky strike etc., sorry thats it not really good.
text is necessary.
blease try it by your self. explane somebody the loly pop icon without to use the word for that like  camera, fog sun etc. its not prof. use. everything has it name und flens flar or bloming is correct.
dont use (might be it is text when mouse-over, for all i know) sorry that is an impact of all.

the ape have learn to speak and write, not to handle with apps, it only for apple apes

for the menue structure once again:

if the lumion team wants to keep this 'picture oriented' menues, ok, but then please program a parallel alphanumeric menue system with parameter-tables, user derinable shortcuts and free user definable menue bars
the user then can decide, which menue-type he uses.

all parameters should be available as lists and tabels (excel-like, TEXT AS MENTIONED ABOVE),

so that the user can for example

copy an effect form video 1 and apply it to 10 free selected videos AT ONCE ( c & p)

copy sun-settings from 1 selected view (build) to more selected or all pictures /views AT ONCE

means, a flexible managment of data / parameters and so on is a MUST.

beside this please insert a batch system and makro system for simple data-operation, by this one could program own presets and aply them simply to a selected section of views or videos ( in the video section this idea already works , since you can define default videos with a set of effects and use it like a preset, thanx for that)...

in contrary to the 'apple-ape'-statement above i think, for a client interface with limited amount of functions a picture based interface works well , on the other hand it is not necessary to fill the screen with 9 big pictures for effects to make a 'show', where not necessary.

we users - professionals - already bought the product , so more info per site is better for the workflow and saves time / reduces clicking around.

or with other words : on a 25 inch screen at least the most daily-routine-parameters could be deiplayed on one menu bar left on the screen - no menue hopping, permanent access.....

take a look at some cad programs, or even sketchup.......

so again - both interface types are useful in different situations, and since lumion's goal surely is to be nr. 1 , please let the USER deside, how he wants to work........and offer those alternatives.

thanx stan

Yes .. Text is important.

There is still text but in the tooltip, just like everywhere else in Lumion.

Is there going to be a constant image on the effects preview window(like icons,i mean) or these previews are gonna be refreshed each time due to our point of view?
Of course it would be better to see your own model on this window, but in case you work with big and complex models this could be painful!

Lumion team, which submitted so far of the new Lumion 3 is fine, but as I said a Spanish writer D. Francisco Umbral: "What I want is to talk about my book." ;) ;)

Could you tell me whether any progress is being investigated to incorporate in the new Lumion 3, on the following topics:

1. - REFLECTIONS. :-9 :-9
2. - TERRAIN MODELING TOOLS MORE DETAILED. :-9 :-9
3. - AND ADJUSTMENTS OBJECT ANIMATION. :-9 :-9

Thank you very much,
Severino

I all,

I'm following with deep interest the developpement of Lumion, even if I haven't use it really, mainly due to some details that where annoying me, and I'm curious to know if they will be adressed in this release :

- A geolocalized sun model : since the beginning I haven't been able to figure out your choice for the sun tool (height and direction). Mainly every other software choose to work with a date / hour system, link to some kind of north tool. It's really intuitive and logical, since every architectural project is supposed to be built somewhere. Are you working on that ?

- An import that respect global coordinate : when you export something from sketchup into max (for example), or the other way around, it's possible to keep the same origin, and then be able to add object from one software to the other whithout placing it by hand.
It's really simple and works since a long time in all other programs, but not in Lumion... why ?
I know there is a possibility to update a model, but it's not as flexible as this

- A "transparency" parametre : So far, I've been looking everywhere in the material tool, but there seems to be no way to change the transparency of a material, whithout changing it into glass. It's a rather problematic issue, since many transparent things could be something else than glass. I still don't get why this function does not exist. Even Sketchup, which possess the simpler material editor ever, gives this possibility.

- A gizmo : when you want to move an object, you have to struggle with controls tools that are not really friendly, and all separate. You always have to go like "first move, then back to the menu, choose rotate, go back, and so on "... An old fashioned gizmo containing the classical move rotate scale tools, seems to be way more efficient.

- An import that respect the model hierarchy : Even a big big model, a whole city for example, is imported as a single object. Could it be thinkable to import it with the respect of it's hierarchy (sketchup nested groups for example). It works really well in Thea (which of course is a quite different software, but still, not that far..). Then you're able to make quick modification (moving a building, or a furniture..) without going back in the modeling software.

...With this software you've reinvented many things, and that's great. The movie editor is a pure gem, the rendering engine is really really strong and beautiful, but on some point, in my opinion, you've tried to reinvent too much things, that were working well in the previous generation of software, and I hope it will change back a bit...

I hope it will not sound too critical, because finally you guys are doing a fine job !

I dont like this picuture only movie effect stuff too. Please do some small text below each picture or so or make a switch at least.
I think the idea is cool but some effects are not so good viewable in just a picture.

Maybe a roll-over effect would be nice so the movie effect with a thumbnail of current scene will be visible. but cluttering thumbnails all over the screen is not so nice.
