There is currently no specific 'watercolor' type effect (as of V1), but you should be able to use and mix the effects you have in the Movie editor to create something similar or unique to a watercolor effect. 

There are drawing type effects included of Sobel, Charcoal and Pencil.  As you have an Ultimate license there is also the Painting effect in the Movie plugin.

Just add the effects and mix and tweak in the Movie Editor.  Then with the frame showing/selected switch out to Photo Render and select the Poster size you need of 7680x4320.

If you have upgraded to Lumion 2, you can find the new Sketch/Watercolor/Manga effects in the Movie Plug-in effects tab.

Post process effects in the Movie Effects plug-in:
    Smart sharpen
    Painting
    Depth of field
    Lens flare
    Watercolor
    Sketch
    Manga
    Rain
    Snow

is it possible to show it snowing \ raining in a rendered image?  Or is it just for the video?  I am unable to see the rain or snow no matter where i have the sliders when i just do an image.

Go to your video mode and choose the shot you want with the snow and such.  Immediately choose the image button, and the image will retain the movie settings (ie. snow rain etc.).  If you go to build mode first before you hit the image icon, it will go back to the non-movie effected image (no now rain etc.).

I am able to get the image in the photo section containing rain and snow.  I just am not seeing the flakes falling or the rain falling?

Are you wanting the rain or flakes to move in a still image?

Before going to the Photo section to make your still image rendering, you'll need to move the time slider until the rain drops/snow flakes reach the desired position. This gives you more control than if the rain drops/snow flakes were falling all the time.

Hmm are you using ATI cards? Do you use other effects on the clip?

I posted my machine components before.  I would be glad to do it again if you give me the instructions again.

Also, do you have any idea why my signage, circled in red would have disapeared in the rendering?  I have to be very close to the signage in order for it to show up??

(If Billet hasn't upgraded yet, he's most likely still using the Dell T3500 with an ATI FirePro v4800:
http://lumion3d.com/forum/index.php?topic=2365.msg14476#msg14476 (http://lumion3d.com/forum/index.php?topic=2365.msg14476#msg14476)

In that thread, we did discuss upgrade paths for his PC/graphics card, but Lumion 2 is fresh out of the oven, so it would be great if we could try to reproduce the problem, in case it's a bug in Lumion.

Can you zip/upload or zip/email us the scene and library files, Billet, so that we can check if it's possible to reproduce the problem on our PCs?
