Title: Parallel projection
Post by: dojigr on September 23, 2012, 03:15:55 pm
Hi guys.

Great software, and by the looks of it it is going to get even better. Cant wait for the new 3.0 release, it's going to be EPIC.

Just a question/suggestion. Are you considering adding a parallel projection feature?
It would really help in making sections, elevation and plans.

Tnx 4 reading !!

Hi dojigr, the developers are keenly aware of the fact that it isn't possible to create proper axonometric views + elevations and cross sections in Lumion.

Ferry actually carried out tests in April 2012 this year but was discouraged by the initial results.

Anything that relies on "projection" will not function correctly if you try to use an orthogonal camera, so the shadows and the ocean were no longer visible. There were other problems too, for example fog not working anymore, but I don't remember all of the details.

For now, your only option is to set the zoom factor to the maximum value.
