"Lumion workflow is simple. It typically won’t take you more than an hour to add all the objects and adjust textures."
American Landscape Architecture Magazine

This is what great workflow looks like

Lumion works wonders by enabling you to iteratively improve your model over time. Even after you've imported your model and built your Lumion scene, you can quickly update your model and import the changes into Lumion with a single mouse-click.

  • Export plug-ins are available for Archicad and Revit
  • Direct export of Sketchup (.skp) files
  • Many file types including .DAE, .FBX, .SKP and .DWG files can be imported into Lumion from many CAD software packages

Top 5 reasons why people buy Lumion

1. You can do it yourself

Lumion enables anyone to create movies and images without any prior training. This means you can do everything yourself and you do not have to spend time or money on external visualizations. Lumion is a complete solution to create images and visualizations from start to finish. All you need is a model and Lumion will take care of the rest. With Lumion you get years of experience of computer graphics experts presented in a way that’s easy to access.

2. Very fast results

You can edit your work in real-time and everything is designed to save you time. This means you can set up a visualization in just a few minutes and make alterations as you go. End results are rendered using GPU rendering technology. This ensures that your movies render in a fraction of the time required by other solutions. With Lumion you have more than enough time for videos in situations where you would normally have to settle for still images.

3. Make your visualizations look beautiful

Rendering is just one of the things necessary to create effective visualizations. To create wonderful visuals you also need beautiful skies, water, grass, materials, plants, people, trees and many other objects. Usually you will have to hire people to create these extra assets for you or find a third party content library. Lumion includes a huge library of tools and content. Everything is perfectly integrated so you can immediately add trees, people and other content to breathe life and atmosphere into your visualizations.

4. Do new things with visualization

Traditionally visualization comes with many restrictions. Rendering takes a long time and software is almost always complex. Lumion completely turns this upside down by providing tools anybody can use. No training in graphics is required. Editing and rendering are almost instantaneous and this opens doors to new ways for your business to use the possibilties that visualization offers. For example, you can customize a video in real-time on the spot or you can add sketch effects to your visualization instantaneously with a click of your mouse, which immediately furnishes your work with a conceptual and artistic feel.

5. Create big visualizations

A lot of software struggles with large models or large areas. The unique technology of Lumion makes it very suitable for things like landscape visualization. Effortlessly, you can edit large areas and add literally tens of thousands of trees, plants or buildings. We get a lot of feedback from our users that Lumion currently is the only software in the world which allows you to effortlessly edit and render such large areas. We’ve even had examples of a whole towns visualized in Lumion!
