Lumion® 3.2 update - Why architects get more clients!
June 4, 2013 1:28 am
Version 3.2 of Lumion®, the revolutionary architectural visualization software from Act-3D® B.V., has now been released. "Listening carefully to our customers, that's the theme of this update" says Act-3D® B.V. CEO, Ferry Marcellis.
He goes on to say that “We’ve gathered together literally hundreds of suggestions and transformed them into important improvements and 100 small tweaks in Lumion, which together add exciting new functionality. The changes take another step towards making Lumion the ultimate software in 3D visualization for Architects, Designers and other AEC professionals. Our meticulous software polishing means that all the changes in version 3.2 feel natural. It all just works.”
One of the key features which has made Lumion so popular, is the ease with which models can be imported and subsequent updates seamlessly incorporated into a Lumion scene. In parallel with the launch of Lumion 3.2, the importing process has been further improved with the addition of a dedicated ArchiCAD® exporter and an updated Revit® 2014 exporter.
In Lumion 3.2, navigating around a scene is now even faster with the addition of a ‘teleport’ function. Materials such as wood or stone can be made any color you like with two mouse clicks and fine-tuning movie effects has been made simpler with a hide/unhide feature.
The 3.2 update also includes many improvements to reflections, clouds, shadows, underwater effects and materials editing. If you are looking for a subtle way to convey a message in your film, you can now add a company logo (or any other picture) to the surface of a flag and watch it blowing in the breeze, in your Lumion scene.Marcellis summarised by saying, “we are constantly striving to enable our customers to realise 3D flythrough films, quickly, intuitively and in line with their natural thinking and workflow processes. Lumion 3.2 takes another big step towards that goal. Architects can now make 3D animations for every project, not just the big ones. Our customers therefore, continue to benefit from this by outperforming their competitors in the tendering process and winning more projects: Customers are literally experiencing our slogan: ‘Lumion helps you get more clients!’”
