Our shadow system is probably different from that technique . But we will add things that can make this with a trick probably.

The examples are all raytracing. Awesome tech for good reflections, refractions and some shadow effects but it's much too slow to do the things you can do in Lumion. The examples are all small simple scenes. It might grow faster in the future though. Maybe at some point it might get good enough to replace rasterization (what Lumion uses now for rendering).

It is true. They are two different schools of thought. Lumion is very fast and realistic. I'm sure you're on the right track. Wink
