New in Lumion 6
Image quality is what distinguishes a great presentation from a good one. That’s why materials, reflections, shadows and lighting have been taken to a new level in Lumion 6. These features and hundreds of other improvements have been enabled by a major overhaul of Lumion’s render engine. The results are now more compelling and realistic than ever. Discover some of the exciting new features below.
LUMION 6.5: RELEASE NOTES
New transparency property for trees and plants. Select one or more trees and plants to see the new slider. Please note that there are 16 transparency levels when rendering a 5-star movie, 8 levels in 4-star movies and 4 levels in 3-star movies.
Change Height + ALT: It is now possible to duplicate models by holding down the ALT key while moving an object vertically.
Render times are now faster in most scenes and on most graphics cards (based on Lumion demo scene tests on a variety of graphics cards).
New equirectangular panoramic output format for use in 3rd party panorama generator software.
It is now possible to re-order each of the Locations by drag and drop.
Copy and paste of a Location is now available in the Context menu for each Location.
Lumion has been upgraded to DirectX 11.
The 4 GB memory cap in Lumion no longer exists on Windows 8.x and 10. This means that Lumion can use more than 4GB graphics card memory (if available) in addition to all available system memory and harddisk swapspace. The result is that you can now work on more complex scenes with more textures on Windows 8.x and 10.
It is now possible to save LS6 files that are larger than 4 GB.
