Library search would be nice. Lots of times I know the name of the model imported, but can't find it visually.

Hi

A suggestion: Lumion has simplified rendering a lot by making it more accessible, but I think the next natural step by you should be to enable cloud rendering, so that high quality renders can be produced even without too high system configurations and less waiting time. Maybe upload an ls3 to a Lumion server or something like that. Something on the lines of Autodesk 360's cloud render services.

Best of luck for future versions.

Thanks for your +1s, virajvoditel and aleksa.santic (both ideas have also been suggested by other users).

Hi.

I hope that you are all ears  ;)

- Copy + Paste, one element with the same rotation and height.
- Copy + Paste, material color - it seems like you have to name everything correctly from (revit, sketchup etc.) prior putting material colors on elements.
- Placing elements such as hedges, fences etc. with a "drop-and-drag" effect (just like placing walls in computer games).

I hope that this is something that you will find interesting and hopefully respond to.

Best regards

are there any plans to use dx 11 for Lumion3d instead of dx9 so we could take advantage of multi GPU setups ?

As far as I know, it will require an upgrade from DirectX 9 to DirectX 11 to resolve the problems with transparent materials. An upgrade would also provide some functionality that would enable better terrain tesselation (more details) and some speed improvements along the way if multi-threading was implemented. The bad news is that it potentially could be a very time-consuming task with a long beta test period.

Nevertheless, I still hope the developers will consider taking the plunge over the coming year. I have seen some mind-blowing proof-of-concept demos made by one of our developers which would really take Lumion to the next level if DirectX 11 were to be implemented, so let's hope this is in the cards sooner rather than later.

DISCLAIMER: I am not implying that Lumion will definitely swith to DirectX 11 in 2013/14, I'm merely explaining what the pros and cons would be if the developers chose to do so.

PETERM:
One aspect on futures and developing in any change of DX is the impact on the product and team over the time, not only to develop but to cleanly incorporate in the product.  Whilst that happens, other features could or need to be put on hold for this base to be done, and it is often almost irrespective of resources thrown at it as well.  

That means users don't see much coming out of the factory, even after an initial release of something like upgrading to DX11/DX12.  The benefits are only noticed and gained by users much further down stream.

A quote from Morten & Peterm on a recent thread. There may be another thread that goes into more depth of DX11 development in Lumion.

Do you get multi GPU capability direct from DX11?

I asked for dx 11 - becouse I do not want to switch from quest3d to unity - if Lumion gets dx11 support - I think that the forgotten group of people that still use quest3d might get another chance to show some interesting v-r projects...

I writing on this forum becouse, nobody from ACT3D replies on quest3d forum...

You made 4 versions of lumion since quest3d 5.0 came out, and I'm left with 2 licenses of quest3d  and bugs not fixed since  4.3...

I still think that Lumion is a great product, but quest3d used to be the same...

Everybody from Act was saying that Unity3d was a childtoy when it came out, but look were they got to...

The Quest3D project has been discontinued. There won't be any future versions, no matter if DX11 will be supported in Lumion or not.

Dear Sir
Please add similar features that plug into Lumion .Such as interactive move and live in an environment with VR
