Converting to Lumion the MMF House to Lumion was among the most engaging articles this year and the starting point for my Lumion review “Visualize at the Speed of Mind” that was published yesterday. I decided to freshen things up a bit here, add some new images like the pool shot you see as the header, and link it to a Talk thread so the discussion can keep on going. Reading this can help set the stage for the review I made.
This one was a long time coming. After giving the new Lumion version a good go and now that I completed teaching my first class about it I found time to write this review which will shed light on the good, bad and all else related to Lumion 8.
The Museum Lumion Challenge has ended recently and I am very proud to present the results of the finalists of this special Architectural Visualization Challenge dedicated specifically to the use of the Real-time 3D Visualization Design & Presentation Tool – Lumion, featuring the Neue National Gallery. I enjoyed this event very much, even more so due to the introduction of animation to the mix with the help of Lumion. Go ahead and have a closer look at the submitted animations as the Jury finalizes the decision-making process.
‘The Museum’ / Maxwell Render Challenge ended today, making way for ‘The Museum’ / Lumion Challenge to start! Collaborating with Act-3D, the makers of Lumion – The Real-Time Architectural Visualization Tool, for the first time on a challenge, this event calls for the use of Lumion in showcasing the 20th century masterpiece you came to know so good by now – The Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin by legendary architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. This time in motion too! We also have some enticing prizes for you, not commonly seen here before, such as a Grand Winner 3,000 EURO Cash Prize and Lumion Pro Licenses with free upgrades to versions 3.x & 4.x as they come out.
Lumion 2 was officially released today, after being available for current clients starting a few days ago, as the development team made big efforts to deliver the new version before Christmas. Lumion 2 brings new features to the quick & easy real-time 3d visualization package most notably, a new lighting system with an IES preset library, a new sky rendering system supporting night-time and new cloud types, a revamped user interface, better animation control and much more.
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 its the strong architectural design that fits my taste so precisely.
