Lumion is the preferred rendering software for many professionals out there.
Although it is a little more expensive than some other offerings that bolt onto existing software, the fact is Lumion is software agnostic, allowing one the freedom to generate fantastic content regardless of the format the model is provided in. Provided one is not expected to create the design oneself, there is no need to invest in other software – and the license is permanent. Lumion is also able to handle very large models with relative ease.
Create stills in a fraction of the time it would take Revit. Create movies. Generate 360⁰ images that may be viewed on a VR headset (slaved to the model), on the desktop or shared with clients for viewing in a browser by simply providing them with a URL (MyLumion).
The ease of use (and a comprehensive library of online video tutorials), content and effects are what makes Lumion stand out from the rest.
There is an extensive library of content that one may place, and one may load a plethora of content available online.
The variety of realistic plants is perfect for landscape and garden designs. Make people and vehicles move to represent traffic. Change the season and the weather. Apply materials that age or have foliage. Apply a variety of artistic effects. Add lights. Be a movie Director!
You also don’t need to break the bank on Hardware as all you would need is a decent rendering PC.
There is little one can fault Lumion on:
- Unlike Revit and 3ds Max and 3ds Max Interactive, Lumion is not able to create navigable VR models. At best one may render a 360⁰ image slaved to the model to view in a VR headset.
- It is also a common perception that people are not realistic enough in comparison to the Architectural and foliage content, so many designers prefer to show them as silhouettes
If you would like to play in a bigger arena, this is the solution for you. Instead of spending a fortune on skills or outsourcing the design, get your vision across using Lumion. It is the cheapest and easiest way to put you in competition with the rest of the industry. Contact Micrographics if you are interested in this amazing product.
