Title: Outer Space Environment possible?
Post by: marlar on April 24, 2012, 07:09:30 pm
Hi,
is it possible to create an environment on a planet in outer space with lumion?
Similar like this:

Guess that means special textures for "sky". And for the planet itself...etc...?

bye
Mark

OK - perhaps my question concerning the creation of an outer space planet is not clear - guess/perhaps it´s my poor english. :-\

An other question - what do you think how long does it takes to create such films like the competition winners here http://lumion3d.com/architecture-visualization-gallery/ (http://lumion3d.com/architecture-visualization-gallery/)
if you are familiar with lumion + having the modelling and texturing skills in a 3rd party 3d application?

Best regards
Mark

One of our users (Aaron) has previously used Lumion for rendering exactly that, but Lumion was obviously not designed for this sort of use, so you would have to import everything and customize materials, textures etc.

Hi Mark,

Absolutely doable, lots of fun, but perhaps a tiny bit out of Lumion' comfortzone.

Aaron - thanks a lot for the sexy examples. Deciding for and learning a new software mostly come along with leaving comfort zones. I´m not afraid of that. Important for me before buying Lumion3d was that it is gererally possible. Now I know it.

Want repeat my second question once more (before starting a new thread):
How long does it take to make films like the first two winners in the competition (without creating the architecture and individuell objects of the scene)?

Thanks
Mark

Hi Mark, I think it will be difficult to get a proper answer to that question since it largely depends on your skillset, how familiar you are with Lumion etc.

Or did you mean how long it takes to render the videos?
