The Museum Lumion Challenge Finalists

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.

Read the Lumion Review – Checking Version 8.5 of Lumion

A lot has happened since this challenge ended, and I wrote an in-depth review of Lumion versions 8.0, 8.3 and 8.5 as I test various scenes with these as they are released.

When The Museum Lumion Challenge ended it was clear that Lumion’s strong side was in motion. Doing architectural visualization animations. Photorealism wasn’t there yet, but being able to produce animation fast compensated for that fact. Since Lumion 8.0 was released it was clear that photorealism is a thing to aim for.

I first checked this by Converting to Lumion the MMF House which was originally done with Corona Renderer.
