Accelerated workflows. Live synchronizations. For Revit, SketchUp, and now, ArchiCAD.
Automatic model imports
By starting the LiveSync connection, Lumion automatically imports your ArchiCAD model. Continue working on and modifying your project even after you turn off LiveSync, and easily save the file as an .LS8 for future rendering or development.
Real-time Materials Synchronization
Feel the rough textures of a weathered concrete wall. Take in the aromas of new wood furniture, and remember what it’s like walking barefoot on cold stone tiles in the morning.
Live point-of-view synchronization
Synchronizing your design and rendering workflow has never been this smooth. When you rotate the view of your building in ArchiCAD, the point-of-view rotates in Lumion.
New LiveSync for ArchiCAD
Accelerate your 3D design workflows by modeling your ArchiCAD project while seeing it in Lumion’s real-time, breathtaking environments. The new LiveSync for ArchiCAD plugin lets you instantly establish a live connection for simultaneous modeling and rendering.
With LiveSync for ArchiCAD, you can breathe life into the design by applying any of Lumion’s 1000+ high-definition materials to the real-time, synchronized model. As you continue working on the design, you can tweak the material settings exactly to your liking and then save your material layouts for future rendering.
Find that perfect viewing angle, you’ll have the same point-of-view in Lumion. With live point-of-view synchronization, LiveSync in Lumion 8.5 immediately adopts the ArchiCAD camera perspective, helping you work faster and effectively.
Various other minor enhancements and bug fixes for v8. See Release Notes.
Additional outputs for photo rendering
Pull out the depth map. Easily create a sky alpha map, and streamline post-processing with additional outputs when rendering photos.
In Lumion 8.5, it’s now possible to render several output types right from Photo mode. You can quickly render a depth map, normal map, lighting map, specular reflection map, sky alpha map or material ID, ideal for fast post-processing work with beautiful, unique results.
Lumion 8.5 is a free update for Lumion 8 or 8.3 users. The LiveSync plugin for ArchiCAD is free for everyone.
By modeling designs in their future environments, you’ll dive into the creative flow of design development. Solve design problems by exploring how your model interacts with real-life elements such as light and shadow. And enhance presentations by making changes to your model on-the-fly and rendering them immediately, beautifully.
Also enhancements and an optmized engine for the LiveSync for Revit and LiveSync for SketchUp plugins.
NEW IN LUMION 8.3
Lumion 8.3 enables real-time, lifelike visualization with SketchUp and Revit.
By turning on the LiveSync synchronization, it’s like you’re modeling your SketchUp or Revit designs in their real-life settings.
LiveSync for Lumion 8.3
With the new LiveSync, you can immediately set up a live, real-time visualization of your SketchUp or Revit model. Change the CAD model’s shape and you’ll see these changes taking place, in real-time, in Lumion’s breathtaking, lifelike environment.
Available for both Revit and Sketchup
Use Lumion materials on LiveSync objects
Real-time materials synchronization and visualization
Automatic model importing into Lumion (no need to separately import a model)
New LiveSync for SketchUp
Supercharge your SketchUp model by designing it simultaneously in Lumion’s real-time, breathtaking environment. The new Lumion LiveSync for SketchUp immediately sets up a live connection between these two programs. You’ll receive immediate, high-quality feedback in Lumion as you interact with your model in SketchUp, solve design problems or present your work in the context of the real world.
Improved LiveSync for Revit
LiveSync for Revit helps you get into the creative “flow” of design development and provide unique, beautiful presentations. With the improved LiveSync in Lumion 8.3, you can breathe life into the synced model by simultaneously modeling in Revit and dressing it with the textured, high-definition materials in Lumion. And you can ease the design and presentation process by syncing the same viewing angle with the LiveSync camera synchronization.
Panorama Mode: - Enhanced editor, ability to now render individual Panoramas - render quality settings - choose from 1 to 5 Star same as in Photo and Movie Modes - added two new effects.
Photo and Images from Movie Mode: - New filter to manage quality of Print/Poster renders.
Various other minor enhancements and bug fixes for v8.0. See Release Notes.
Real-time materials synchronization
LiveSync in Lumion 8.3 now synchronizes your material assignments in SketchUp or Revit.
Live point-of-view synchronization
Rotate the view of your building in SketchUp or Revit, Turn it on and immediately adopt the Revit or SketchUp camera perspective, making your work easier, faster, and more enjoyable.
