Hi M., there's no "evaluation" version of Lumion 5.0.

Where did you download this version from?

Hi odercniem, in version 5.3, the Mass Move effect only includes a start and an end point for each path, so you may want to consider contacting your local reseller (http://lumion3d.com/reseller/) to request a 7-day trial version of Lumion Pro 6.0.

Lumion 6.0 allows you to add multiple waypoints to a path in the Mass Move effect. The effect also lets you specify the curvature of the path between waypoints. It's possible to place waypoints on stairs as well.

However, there are no climbing animations for the animated 3D people, so it will never look correct if you make them "climb" a ladder. If you make them walk up a set of stairs, it looks acceptable from a distance but not for close-ups as the feet may penetrate the steps on the stairs :)

That's a known limitation.

The only workaround would be to animate the Snow Density and Snow Layer slider value while the camera is indoors.
