The results of the 2011 Lumion Competition were announced today, an boy what amazing things can be done with this tool! It really makes me rethink the way I work today, and I have a lot to learn about it (and look forward too). I think the movie that came out in third place is the best among them all… maybe it’s the strong architectural design that fits my taste so precisely.

I find it more fitting that first and third places focused on a single project, rather then doing a reel style movie as the second place… but this is just me and my personal taste. Check the Lumion 2011 Competition Winners Announcement Page for full write-up about the winners and the reasones why they were picked, and a selection of many other honorable mention entries.

Please have a good long look at these and share your thoughts about it in the comment section below – I think we might have come over a hill (with the marriage of software and hardware) and workflows will start to change.

I went over all the other animation uploaded to the competition mix online and I found the GH HOUSE featured in Pavel Huerta‘s entry – How cool is that!!!

He build a massive landscape around the house, and his animation has some remarkable shots… check it out now icon wink Lumion 2011 Competition Winners

The third place seems to display the relationship between human landscape and natural landscape.

I'm over impressed with the images and anime's. You know, i had an inkling this gpu render progrma would actually break some grounds in archviz. Looking at the third image makes me agree with Ronen as i initially thought "OMG, Bertrand entered this too, lol. All in all nice. COngrats to the winners, and great release from the creators. "Lumioning as we speak...lol"

... ops, i'm wrong?, i remember to have difficulties in moving textures, baybe depends on how i've imported the model.. ;)

What do you refer to by moving texture - is to changing the tiling on the surface? if so - you can do that.

As for the videos being post processed in AE - I don't think so... Lumion has pretty good After Effects collection ;) but why guess... I'm already in talks with the RenderCORE team about their animation and hope to share more insight very soon ;)

'morning!

i think lumion is one of the simpliest software i've ever seen, a part from the material manager, you cannot move texture as far as i know..

Do you think these videos are post processed in AE?

Third place is great, Ronen, any chance you could contact one of these guys for an insight please? Lumion is looking very promising suddenly, especially in terms of filling in that space between sketchup/revit screen grab and final post-processed image. I'd love to hear more about learning curve/workflow/tips etc.

I have to agree - Third place RenderCore studios shows more Balance between Architecture and the Environment - with both interacting with each other. There's a some sort of presence happening there.

First place is great - and big props to Garrett - nice score dude!

Ok, so water looks amazing in Lumion! and the third place reminds me a lot of GH House and also Bertrand's location in the Challenge - on the cliffs edge with the lake / sea sown below.

I also notice a very smart use of the material emitter feature - although it is not an actual light, the added effects on it make it look like it is and it comes out very nice...
