Title: Its all gone dark
Post by: thirty6 on March 06, 2013, 09:41:47 pm
Been playing with lumion free and seems great till today when it all went dark.
If it was vray I would think the environment had been turned off, the background is now pixelated and no matter what I do to the sun settings it stays dark.

Any ideas on a fix.

Just seen some other users have had the same problem. Thank god I was only playing with the free one. Does lumion 3 have the same bug?

Hi vsdesigns, this was a known issue in Lumion 2.x - the Weather settings would basically all be set to 0. We do not know what caused it since it happened extremely rarely and for that reason, we were never able to reproduce it consistently.

I don't recall receiving any reports of this problem occurring again after Lumion 3 was released a few months ago.

In other news, Lumion Free 3.1 will be released soon, so you'll be able to test this for yourself.

Hi vsdesigns, when Lumion 3.1 is released, your clients will be able to download a dedicated scene viewer. It will be possible to switch between a pre-animated Movie mode (real-time playback) and Flythrough mode.

The downside is that the dedicated viewer is rather large since all models and materials are included (over 3GB) :)
