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

perfect  :)

...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...

This is mainly for SketchUp but could probably used for other modelling programs, too:

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...


Good points. Some things have technical reasons and some are made as they are because of usability. For example moving an object is an extremely difficult job. We actually test this and we test many different methods and see how people do. In the case of a transform gizmo we found that it is a horrible way to move object for most people. It's hard to believe if you are used to it. At Act-3D we work with 3D software for over 15 years here so we are a very bad measure when it comes judging ease of use ourselves. So that's why we test it and we find out things like this.

The movement we have now at least works for everyone. If you use the hotkeys the current method is even faster than a transform gizmo but ofcourse that's more for advanced users. In 3.0 we completely changed the way we deal with hotkeys so I'm sure you will be able use them very effectively.

We keep doing research on things like these and we keep improving things but we'll always be very carefull so we never want to make things more difficult. We'll try to find solutions that work for advanced users while not getting in the way of people who use the software for the first time.

I think some of the practical points about coordinates and sun direction are very valid. We implement things like that in minor updates after the release (3.1 3.5 etc...). A major update is all about introducing new things, completely redesigning things and generrally big things that have a huge impact.

We want to be perfectionists. We set clear and big goals and we take the time we need to develop, research and polish them. There are many tiny tweaks and changes too but at some point we need to focus on the big things and make sure Lumion 3.0 will blow you away. Fortunately results look good and I think it will blow you away and we even have some stuff you never imagined.

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.

We got a few comments like that. I would say you just wait until you have used it because it's really a LOT better than the current screen in Lumion 2.5. We also did some things with using an image of the actual scene but that did not really work. The problem is that some effects are barely visible or hard to pick out. In essence a thumbnail of the actual scene in many cases is a really bad representation of what the effect does. The core of this screen is finding the effects you want. We did some tests and found that people simply have no clue what an effect does by it's name. There are are also several effect which are really hard to label. We do have a label but it will pop up if you hover your mouse.

The primairy way to find your effect is visually. Especially if you are used to it you will find that you pick effect within nanoseconds and you do not even have to search. There's location memory, visual memory and associative memory involved when picking an effect and those three already direct you to the right effect long before you can read the text. In practice you only have to read the text in discovery mode at the first time to get some descriptions but after that the pictures are perfect for finding your way quickly.

New snow is absolutely stunning!
Can't wait to make wintry illustrations!
Would it be possible to have snowed vegetation from the whole content of the plants library?

The new snow effect is fantastic. Much more better than Lumion 2.* as all the new effects.

But, I think that there are a small problem with rain and snow... the interior of the buildings have the snow (or rain) effect. It is possible in any way to remove those effects in covered places?

I am interested in the possibility of new possible layers of postproduction such as Wire lines and Ambient shadows.

I am following all the new features of Lumion 3.0, and I'm pretty sure that this software could be my next acquisition. Good work.

Waiting for November to reveal all the secrets of lumion 3.0 may not be a good idea. Come on lumion team, just reveal everything so people can start planning which lumion type they can plan for. Stop teasing us. :7
