Title: Wall effects
Post by: Vianna88 on August 25, 2014, 04:33:01 pm
Hi everyone,

I'm a newbie and I'd like to know if there are some effects (for instance, mold, dust, faded paint, ecc) to apply to wall or similar structures.

Thank you  :)

Hi Vianna88

Which version of Lumion are you using, and also what modelling tools?

Generally you do that in your modelling application, or by applying textures that are edited for 'dirt' or 'aging' either in the modelling application or in Lumion.

Hi Peter,

thank you for replying.

I did not use a specific modelling software, I posted that question only for an interest of mine, since I've just started to work with Lumion.

I thought Lumion allowed to "grow up" dirt on walls (or general surfaces) as well as grass!

OK.

No there is no specific feature for 'growing' or 'aging' things. 

Another option is to add planes or other surfaces in Lumion with 'aged' textures that include an alpha map (transparency) on top of the main surface.
